iSChannel is an annual journal on the social study of information systems which is produced, edited and double-blind reviewed by the students of the Information Systems and Innovation Group, with advice from faculty. As a core subject, our journal focuses on the study of ICTs, and of the social implications of technological innovation. Still, research works from other perspectives are considered for publication, provided that they place the discussion on ICTs at the core of analysis and problematization.

iSChannel 2014: Call for Papers
The iSCHANNEL, now in its ninth year of publication, cordially invites students and researchers from different disciplines to submit their papers for the 2014 issue.
iSCHANNEL is a student journal of information systems, based at the Information Systems and Innovation Group (ISIG) of the LSE Department of Management. As a core subject, our journal focuses on the study of information and communication technologies (ICTs), and of the social implications of technological innovation. Still, research works from other perspectives are welcome, provided that they place the discussion on ICTs at the core of analysis and problematization.
Submissions for the 2014 issue will need to come in the form of research papers, revolving around one or more of the themes inscribed in the intellectual tradition of information systems. Authors are strongly encouraged to present papers where theory, while being clearly outlined, is matched by empirical studies, on which clear implications are predicated. Former and current students are very welcome to submit papers extracted from their past dissertations or essays, bearing in mind that the limit for submissions to iSCHANNEL is set to 4000 words.
The deadline for final submission of work is on the 31st January 2014. Manuscripts will need to be sent directly to the Editorial Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those interested in submitting an article, and wishing to get preliminary feedback from the Editorial Board, are free to submit an abstract (max. 300 words) by 10th January 2014. Before that date, the Editorial Team will be happy to help out with comments and suggestions to inform final submissions.
To be considered for publication, papers will need to comply with the following submission guidelines:
Manuscripts have a word limit of 4000 words. This includes title and footnotes, but excludes abstracts (max. 300 words), references and appendices.
