Journal of Social Informatics
The Journal of Social Informatics (Revista de Informatica Sociala (Ro), JSI), was launched in 2004 as an online journal on social informatics, distance and e-learning, exploring the potential of electronic publishing.
Although the range of works dedicated to Social Informatics (SI) is complex and very dynamic, the Romanian studies in this field lack, at the moment, the needed consistency to stand a comparison with the consistency typical of other academic areas. Consequently, JSI aims to fill this empty space, which is too vast anyway.
The JSI will publish articles (papers) connected to the social aspects of computerization, studies linked to the information society and any topic related to the area of social informatics. Subjects covered include, but are not limited to:
- types of discourse related to computerization - the technological utopia and dystopia
- the economic, cultural, and organizational dimensions of computerization
- social relationships on electronic forums
- computerization and the change of job/work place - the role of the new information and communication technologies in various professions
- social and personal control
- security systems and social vulnerability
- ethical perspectives and professional responsibilities (hacking, fraud)
- social behaviour of people who develop and use computerized systems
- the impact of new ICT in education
- online distance education and e-learning
- computerization as a form of democracy
- risks of computerization (medical diagnosis, financial transactions)
- influences on the professional and private life
- virtual communities
- the growing importance of cyber-culture
- national and international policies
- digital entertainment, etc.
