The Journal of Information Technology & Politics (JITP) seeks high-quality manuscripts on the challenges and opportunities presented by information technology in politics and government.  The primary objectives of the journal are to:

  • promote a better understanding of how evolving information technologies interact with political and governmental processes and outcomes at many levels
  • encourage the development of governmental and political processes that employ IT in novel and interesting ways, and
  • foster the development of new information technology tools and theories that can capture, analyze, and report on these developments
