The International Journal of Technological Innovation and Social Dynamics (IJTISD) provides an international forum for practitioners and researchers from social sciences, as well as information systems professional practitioners, to contribute and share developed, useful, and innovative research regarding the impact and future of technologies in the workplace. Much, but not all, of this research relates to the implementation and use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), as these inevitably involve interactions between technology and people. It also provides content relating to the use of Actor-Network Theory as a means of understanding various socio-technical phenomena and provides examples and case studies of technological innovation. Covering all aspects of social issues impacted by information technology in organizations and inter-organizational structures, IJTISD presents the conceptualization of specific social issues and their associated constructs. This journal encompasses designs and infrastructures, empirical validation of social models, and case studies illustrating socialization success and failures relating to Information Technology.

Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Technological Innovation and Social Dynamics (IJTISD) is to provide a forum for information technology educators, researchers, and practitioners to advance the practice and understanding of technology and the impacts of technology on social behaviors and norms in the workplace and society. IJTISD bridges the gap between technology and social sciences in an effort to increase understanding of the relationship between information technology and the cultural and social dynamics of society. The goal of the journal is to cover a wide range of topics, including actor-network theory, as well as case studies to assist in the explanation of various socio-technical phenomena. This journal publishes full-length research manuscripts, insightful research and practice notes, and case studies.
