Human IT: Journal for Information Technology Studies as a Human Science

Human IT is a multi-disciplinary peer-reviewed journal on digital media as communicative, aesthetic, and ludic instruments. Contributions are welcome from the humanities, the social, behavioural, and natural sciences, as well as technology. Articles are written in Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and English.

Aims and scope: “Human IT aspires to be a forum for new research which risks falling outside of the borders of intra-disciplinary channels of publication as a result of its multi-disciplinary approach or unorthodox choice of subject. We work with an extended editorial board which includes representatives from many different scholarly disciplines, practices, and countries. Periodically, an issue will be devoted to a special theme that accords with the overall topics of the journal, for instance, ‘Language and IT’, ‘Computerization and Narrative Fiction’, ‘E-democracy’, or ‘Artificial intelligence’.”
