Referee Guidelines | Submission Overview | Instructions for Authors
Manuscripts should have significant theoretical and empirical roots, preferably in both political
science and IT, but should at least contain significant content in both areas. We are
particularly interested in manuscripts in three areas: how information technology (IT) influences
politics and government; how politics and government influence the development and use of IT; and
how IT can be, or is being, used to advance research and teaching about politics and government,
particularly in political science.
JITP welcomes and strongly encourages submissions based on interdisciplinary approaches including
(but not limited to) information and computer sciences, law, geography, communications, economics,
and sociology. We anticipate publishing articles on e-government, as well as applications of
information technology in campaigns, elections, and public sector management. Other articles will
examine the political economy of IT and governance of the Internet. We also anticipate publishing
articles on forms of citizen interaction with government, from web logs ("blogs") at the "net-roots"
to hyperlinked transnational social movements. Finally, we are interested how technology
developments are advancing political science research and instruction.
