New ICT4D Journal: International Journal of Information Communication Technologies and Human Development

The new International Journal of Information Communication Technologies and Human Development will see the light the first trimestre of 2009.

The journal is aimed at understanding how ICTs can contribute to human development in several areas. herefore its overall objectives are:

* To describe the link between ICTs and human development (which includes economic, social and political development).

* To identify the potential applications of ICTs in several areas.

* To provide insightful analysis about those factors (also contextual and institutional ones) that affect ICTs for development initiatives success or failure.

* To propose strategies (to both governments and international cooperation organizations) to move forward and to address future challenges.

The journal will be edited by Mila Gascó (Editor-in-Chief) and Manuel Acevedo and Barbara Fillip, among others, as associate editors.

I have (proudly) accepted to be on the editorial review board, that features people like David Keogh, Robin Mansell, Alemayehu Molla or Pippa Norris, to mention a few most familiar to me.

Reviewing articles or communications has always been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had: it’s difficult to quantify how much you’ll learn by reading other’s ideas and finding out their good points and their errors. Simply enlightening.

If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
