New Ways of Working: Changing Nature of Work with ICT

Guest Editors:    Jungwoo Lee, Professor, Yonsei University
 Sandeep Purao, Professor, Penn State University

SUBMISSION DUE: July 26, 2015 / Published in September 2015 Issue (Quick Turnaround)

JITS will be publishing a series of special section in 2015 dedicated to “new ways of working: changing nature of work with ICT.” With smart technologies, the very nature of work is changing. As work is deeply embedded in the fabric of our life, rules and institutions of our society change. Although many studies have been conducted concerning business process innovations and new business models, studies concerning what people actually do in these new processes and organizations are very scarce.

We invite practitioners as well as academics to submit insights, frameworks, cases and research contributions concerning the changing nature of work and the evolving workplace practices. The scope will be shaped only by the imaginations and creativity of authors. 

JITS welcomes different investigative approaches including conceptual, organizational, behavioral, economic, social and technological ones. Submissions of manuscripts dealing with trans-disciplinary issues across different domains and methods are strongly encouraged. We are interested in developing research frameworks and issues, and welcome qualitative and/or prescriptive research, especially studies that can help readers to conceptualize new ways of working including technologies and social institutions, that are archetypical of new information and knowledge based economies. We also welcome quantitative pieces shedding lights on the changing nature of work.  

JITS is published quarterly on March, June, September, and December. Manuscripts for these special sections will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout 2015. Guest editors assure that the initial review for each submission will take less than a month. For any questions or comments, contact the admin support at jits.editor at gmail.com.
