The Information Society, published since 1981, is a key forum for
thoughtful analysis of the impacts, policies, system concepts, methodologies
and cultural change related to information technology and social
change. Its audiences include policy and decision makers and scientists
in government, industry and education; managers concerned with the
effects of the information revolution on individuals, organizations
and society; and scholars with an interest in the relationship between
information technologies, social/organizational life, and social
change. Good articles for The Information Society deepen our understanding
of important issues through new data, theories or compelling analyses.
They are anchored in strong scholarship, but are also written so
they are accessible to non-specialists. Please visit our website if you would like to learn more about the journal.
