Call for Papers

The Journal is considering articles for publication in future issues. In addition to our already broad topic range, we are currently seeking articles examining President Obama's technology agenda. As this new administration implements policies and programs integrating technology, it will affect individuals, businesses, education, information accessibility, science, healthcare, communication, the environment, and the economy. A complete treatment of any of these topics should include a description and analysis of the relevant technology and a discussion of the implications for individuals, groups, or other countries. Ideally, submissions should offer suggestions on how to proceed on any issues discussed. For more information, contact the Journal's Solicitation Editor at

If you have any additional questions regarding Journal submissions, please e-mail the Journal and direct all questions to either one of the Solicitation Editors or the Editor-in-Chief.
