Subjects relating to information have emerged in recent years as the most pervasive and fastest growing fields in universities and research centers globally. These include all aspects of business information systems, information science, information technology and information management in attempts to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and performance of organizations. Contemporary topics are frequently characterized through information-intensive processes such as e-business, e-government and e-commerce systems, knowledge management and systems innovation.
The last decade has seen an unparalleled increase in the adoption and diffusion of these new information-artifacts (systems and technologies), which have had a significant impact on organizational design, structures and behavior. The rationale for research in this area is to investigate, evaluate and disseminate theoretically grounded and valid empirical approaches for information-exploitation in these complex environments, including industry, commerce, government and health informatics.
The Journal of Information Science & Technology (JIST) is wholly engaged in supporting these objectives.
