ITID Website Defines Leading Edge for Journals

Primary tabs

The Information Technologies and International Development Journal (ITID) has raised the bar on best practices for online journals. In February, the ITID launched a new 2.0 open access version of its website.

Editor-in-chief, Michael Best, Professor, Sam Nunn School of International Affairs writes, The Internet has fundamentally changed all aspects of scholarly communication. Top journals must continuously track (and invent) new ways to use the net that improve the publishing process and the readers experience in order to foster a richer intellectual exchange. We believe that ITID shot ahead of this curve when we went open access with our third volume (the first open access journal published by the MIT Press). With our new Web site, we have moved further on this journey, now offering what we think is today s best-practice in online journal environments.

The site re-launch was supported by Microsoft and developed in cooperation with the Georgia Tech Library and Information Center. We hope the site can serve as a model of what libraries and scholars can accomplish together in the field of open-access scholarly publishing, said Julie G. Speer, Head of the Library s Scholarly Communication and Digital Services Division at Georgia Tech. Co-edited by professors in University of Southern California s Annenberg School for Communication, the ITID Journal is an interdisciplinary open-access journal that focuses on the intersection of information and communication technologies (ICTs) with countries that are not yet widely connected to the Internet nor widely considered in the design of new information technologies.
