As information technology becomes ever more sophisticated, complex and pervasive, its encounter with organizational structures and practices continues to deepen in importance, to the organizations themselves, to the people who comprise them, and to the societies in which this encounter is embedded. Information Technology and People has been a pioneer in exploring this phenomenon since 1982. It remains at the leading edge of research that discerns not only the interrelationship of IT and the organization, but new methods and theories for perceiving and understand this relationship. To this end, the journal utilizes leading social theory, multiple methods and the newest venues where information technology is deployed. The editorial scope includes not only the setting and the approach to study but the very reasoning that we use in conceptualizing about technology and deciding how it will be used, and follows through to examine the emergent forms of organizations and technology as they interact.
