Call for Papers for
a Special Issue of the
Journal of Information, Communication & Society
ICTs & SD
Information and Communication Technologies and Sustainable Development
Guest Editors: Gunilla Bradley, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm
Wolfgang Hofkirchner, Paris-Lodron-University of Salzburg
Assistant Editor: Robert Bichler, Paris-Lodron-University of Salzburg
Deadline for Submission: March 1, 2008
Tentative Publication Date: November, 2008
The objective of this special issue is to discuss current developments
in the field of ICTs and Sustainable Development (SD) by providing a
forum for both academic researchers and practitioners interested in
broadening and deepening the understanding of the sustainability concept.
In the discourse on sustainability there has been a shift from a focus
on ecological issues towards the inclusion of broader societal issues.
The so called ?Agenda 21? (1992) in the Rio ?Earth Summit? stated four
mutually independent dimensions of sustainability: ecological, economic,
social, and cultural. Such a perspective becomes especially important if
one wants to formulate indicators for sustainability. How did so far,
can in principle, and could in future, a more comprehensive approach
like this influence the understanding of how ICTs can help foster SD?
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished work, not under
consideration for publication elsewhere, with a theory, research or
practice focus on the relationship of ICTs and SD.
Authors may submit articles up to 7,000 words in length by sending an
electronic version preferably in Word to the following address only:
robert.bichler at sbg.ac.at
