Given the growing success and popularity of the journal, our submissions
have tripled in the past year and it is challenging the capacity of the
current editorial board. Therefore, we are expanding the Editorial Review
Board and have several vacancies, especially for scholars from outside
USA.  If you have an interest and credentials in global IT and would like
to serve on the Board, please contact the Editor in Chief at
pcpalvia at uncg.edu.  Please include a 100-word bio with your request.


If you or your colleagues would like to propose a special issue of JGITM,
please contact the Editor in Chief (EIC) with a proposal.  You will have
much guidance and assistance in preparing the special issue from the EIC.
Each issue typically requires three fully referred articles, an editorial,
a professional interview, and a book review.  The usual lead time for a
special issue is 12-15 months.  The theme of the special issue must be in
global IT, e.g., a topic area or focus on a world region.
