Certainly related enough that folks on this list will see it and pay
attention. :-)

Given your topic, I think I would suggest starting  with social
informatics research; there's a very good set
of journals listed at http://rkcsi.indiana.edu/index.php/journals that
you can take advantage of.

Community informatics practitioners (as mentioned in your sig) may
also be a very handy source of
journal recommendations, though I am a lot less familiar with the
publishing going on in that area.

Hope this helps...
