Information Technology for Development, with an established record for publishing quality research and influencing practice for over 20 years, is the first journal to have explicitly addressed global information technology issues and opportunities. It publishes social and technical research on the effects of Information Technology (IT) on economic, social and human development. In addition to being a valuable publication in the field of information systems, Information Technology for Development is also cited in fields such as public administration, economics, and international development and business, and has a particularly large readership in international agencies connected to the Commonwealth Secretariat, United Nations, and World Bank. Information Technology for Development endeavors to advance research and practice in the development of scalable Information Technology (IT) infrastructures in global development, and considers IT, policy and commerce infrastructures, and the effects of online communities and research methods for measuring the effects of IT. The journal appeals to engineers, scientists, strategists, practitioners in the field, academics, international leaders, and policy-makers who recognize the importance of IT as an economic driver and make decisions with respect to investments in technical, legal and human infrastructures. The objective of Information Technology for Development is to provide a forum for policy-makers, practitioners, and academics to discuss strategies and best practices for working in developing countries, tools and techniques for ascertaining the effects of IT infrastructures in government, civil societies and the private sector, and theories and frameworks that explain the effects of IT on development. The journal helps address how to achieve significant, measurable improvements in addressing the Millennium Development Goals through Information and Communication Technology (ICT): Strategies for sourcing goods in the less developed countries and marketing services to the more developed countries; Best practices for working in the different countries; Theories and frameworks that explain the effects of IT on development; and Tools and techniques for ascertaining the effects of IT infrastructures in government, civil society and the private sector.
