TPRC Special Journal Issues
The journals Telecommunications Policy and Journal on Information Policy will both invite papers for special issues from this year’s conference.
Telecommunications Policy is concerned with the roles of information and communication technologies (ICT) in the economy and society. The journal is multidisciplinary and international, encompassing conceptual, theoretical and empirical studies, quantitative as well as qualitative. Its scope includes ICT markets; policy, regulation, and governance; management, entrepreneurship, innovation and use. Contributions may explore these topics at national, regional and international levels, including issues confronting both developed and developing countries (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/telecommunications-policy/)
The Journal of Information Policy is a peer-reviewed scholarly online journal that is multidisciplinary and international in scope. Published by the Institute for Information Policy at the Pennsylvania State University, and made possible by a grant from the Ford Foundation, the journal is designed to bring contemporary scholarly research and analysis of significant information policy issues to the attention of policymakers in a timely fashion. We interpret the term information policy broadly and consider all methodological approaches. Articles provide insights and/or recommendations into issues that are timely and useful for decision makers, and can be viewed and downloaded for free at the journal’s website (www.jip-online.org).
