TITR: New IT research publication creates new opportunities

January 24th, 2013 Comments off

Transactions on Information Technology Research (TITR) is a peer-reviewed publication that covers substantive additions, insights and challenges to the theory and practice of programming, networking, information management, web systems, user-centered design and their integration. It provides academic and industry researchers a new refereed venue to present original research methods and findings to the IT community of scholars and practitioners. TITR’s focus is on technological developments affecting growth and change in enterprise IT infrastructure, systems integration and implementation. For their inaugural issue, they are seeking papers that will contribute to defining “IT research” by bringing, in addition to defining position papers, current empirical, methodological and theoretical investigations of IT artifacts, the deployment of IT systems, as well as end user experience to the IT community.

The editors and reviewers of TITR encourage IT faculty, practitioners and students to contribute original scholarship, including deeper investigations and fuller descriptions of research presented at conferences and symposia. In order to bring new research findings to their readers, TITR is committed to keeping the publication process (receipt, review, revision and publication) to a bi-annual cycle.  The ITM program is strongly committed to student research and we encourage all of our students (and faculty) to take advantage of this new opportunity.
