Guidelines and Forms for Reviewers


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.

We would appreciate your evaluation of the enclosed article in a form that will help us decide if it should be published (perhaps with revisions), and with suggestions that will help the author understand how to alter the article, if necessary. Please send the Associate Editor (via ScholarOne) a report that identifies the merits of this article and any significant problems that could inhibit publication. We are interested in learning about the positive contributions that this article can make both to its specialized topic and to TIS readers, as well as any intellectual or stylistic problems that must be resolved. Who must read this article and why? How does this article advance our understanding of its key topics? Is the article lucid and compelling or lacking focus or significance? How well does it build upon previous research and thinking about its topic?

Please formulate your comments frankly and courteously, and please be as specific as possible. We appreciate the time you will spend in writing a review that would help guide the Associate Editor and the authors understand the basis of your judgments and the nature of any revisions you believe are necessary.

We would appreciate receiving a review within 6 weeks, although short extensions are possible. We thank you for your input, which is essential for furthering the journal's mission.
