About

This site contains papers published in the Journal of Information, Information Technology, and Organizations (JIITO) when it was published by the Informing Science Institute.

Mission

The purpose of the Journal of Information, Information Technology, and Organizations (JIITO) is to encourage authors to develop and publish quality papers that address in a balanced manner all three entities signified in its title: information, information technology (IT), and the organizational context.

Other information systems journals commonly focus on either IT or on information, all but excluding the other. In contrast, JIITO gives equal treatment both to IT and information, while conceiving information broadly in terms of knowledge, wisdom, meaning, and data. Information and IT need to be studied in the context of tasks or processes, spanning over appropriate levels of analysis - individual, group, organizational, interorganizational, community, and so on. JIITO welcomes investigations of organizations of any sort, any industry, and any relevant social domain.

JIITO encourages articles that use rich, detailed accounts of information and IT. Any topic and any philosophical perspective that help us to make sense of information and IT in organizations is welcome. Of particular interest are empirical studies that explain how organizations cope, prosper, change, fail with respect to using, managing, designing and adopting information systems. In the conceptual realm, JIITO encourages articles that take a critical look at advent, genesis and and uses of models that have influenced IS research for considerable time; see more on this in the Editorial Statement.

Message from the Editor in Chief

Beginning January 1, 2013, Journal of Information, Information Technology, and Organizations (JIITO) will no longer be an official publication of the Informing Science Institute.  I have not yet named the new publisher but it is expected that the URL http://JIITO.org will point to the new paper submission and review site.

All papers published by the Informing Science Institute will continue to be available for access by scholars and students without charge.

In January, the Informing Science Press will print its final volume of JIITO.  That volume will be available for purchase at Amazon.com and  Informing Science Press.  Members of the Informing Science Institute will be able to purchase this volume via the Members-Only bookstore at very deep discounts.
