iSCHANNEL Call for Papers

The iSCHANNEL, now in its eleventh year of publication cordially invites you all to submit papers for the 2016 volume.

iSCHANNEL is a student journal of information systems, based at the Information Systems and Innovation Faculty Group of the LSE Department of Management. As a core subject, our journal focuses on the study of information and communication technologies (ICTs), and on the social implications of technological innovation. Still, research works from other perspectives are welcome, provided that they place the discussion on ICTs at the core of analysis and problematization.

Submissions for the 2016 issue will need to come in the form of research papers, revolving around one or more of the themes inscribed in the intellectual tradition of information systems. Authors are strongly encouraged to present papers where theory, while being clearly outlined, is matched by empirical studies, on which clear implications are predicated.
