CALL FOR PAPERS (please forward)

Telecentres, Community Informatics and Development: What Do We Know Now?

THE ELECTRONIC JOURNAL ON INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
(EJISDC)  (http://www.unimas.my/fit/roger/EJISDC/EJISDC.htm)

Submission deadline August 15, 2000

A special edition of the EJISDC on Telecentres will be guest edited by
Michael Gurstein, Ph.D., Gurstein and Associates, Vancouver BC, Canada
[(Ed.) Community Informatics:  Enabling Communities with Information and
Communications Technologies http://www.idea-group.com/books.html] and Roger
Harris, Ph.D. Universiti of Malaysia Sarawak, Malaysia.

Telecentres  (also known as Community Communication Centres, Infoshops,
Telecottages, Community Access Centres and others) have emerged in the last
ten years as the primary means for providing "public" access to the range of
telecommunications services and particularly the Internet.  Beginning in
Northern Europe, the approach has spread quickly throughout the world
with current estimates as to total numbers ranging (depending on the
definition) into the tens if not low hundreds of thousands.

Telecentres are currently being developed as community hubs for linking the
range of opportunities presented by Information and Communications
Technologies (ICT's) with economic and social development efforts at the
local level.  Submissions thus could include discussions in such areas as
telecentres and community access; community informatics and "telecentre
theory"; the technology of telecentres; telecentres and community oriented
on-line health and wellness initiatives; the role of telecentres in cultural
preservation and exchange and in the collection and recording of indigenous
knowledge; telecentres and rural and agricultural development; telecentres,
electronic commerce and SME's; and business models for telecentre
sustainability.

This special edition of the EJISDC will present a summation and "state of
the art" with respect to "telecentres" in developing countries.  It will
look to go beyond isolated case studies to link knowledge and experience
with telecentres to the broader range of Information Systems and Community
Informatics literature and will include overview studies of telecentre
developments in particular application areas, and evaluation and
synthesizing studies of current experience and "lessons learned".

This edition will include a range of papers by researchers and practitioners
addressing issues, trends, controversies, challenges and opportunities
facing the telecentre "movement" into the millennium. The edition will
include primarily discussions and cases from developing countries but
comparisons between developed and developing country
experience, and practise and experience in developing regions or aboriginal
populations in developed countries will also be welcomed.

SUBMISSION PROCEDURE
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit previously unpublished
manuscripts on or before August 15, 2000. All submitted papers will be
"blind" peer reviewed. Other forms of submission are also welcome, such as
position papers, commentaries and book reviews.  The edition is scheduled to
appear by Oct. 1, 2000.  Negotiations are currently underway for the
publication in book form of an extended version of this edition.

Inquiries and Submissions should be forwarded electronically to:
       Michael Gurstein, Ph.D. [log in to unmask]
       Gurstein and Associates, Vancouver BC, CANADA
or
       Roger Harris, Ph.D. [log in to unmask]
       Head of the Information Systems Core Group
       Faculty of Information Technology
       Universiti Malaysia Sarawak, MALAYSIA

THE ELECTRONIC JOURNAL ON INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
(EJISDC) is striving to become the foremost international forum for
practitioners, teachers, researchers and policy makers to share their
knowledge and experience in the design, development, implementation,
management and evaluation of information systems and technologies
in developing countries.

EJISDC intends to reach its audience in a manner which is consistent with
its mission. It will be published electronically, as the title suggests.
There will be no subscription fees. Research contributions will be sought,
and they will be reviewed and refereed by renowned scholars, but EJISDC is
not a journal for academics merely to showcase their research skills to each
other. The editors will seek contributions from practitioners, managers,
policy makers and writers with a story to tell.

Copyright in EJISDC
An author submitting a paper agrees to license EJISDC to publish the paper
if and when the manuscript is accepted.  Papers published in EJISDC are
protected by copyright, which is retained by the authors. Authors control
translation and reproduction rights to their works published in EJISDC.
