Today’s society is fraught with a myriad of constrained opportunities. These challenges are indeed daunting, and the need for change is ever present. The mission of International Journal of Information Systems and Social Change (IJISSC) is to provide an international forum for practitioners and researchers from both the social and natural sciences, along with information systems professionals, software developers, and vendors, to exchange, share, and present useful and innovative ideas and work. It also enables the presentation and distribution of ground-breaking and original ideas and concepts, which can shape future directions of research. These, when applied, can enable policy makers, government officials, business managers, and social workers to spread over various advanced techniques and new applications of information systems. IJISSC also encourages discussions on how information systems can promote social change, and also in turn, how the advances brought about by these social changes can affect the growth in, and future application of, information systems.

“It is with great honor to serve on the editorial board of this journal.  While we enjoy the convenience the technology has brought us in this information era, we have also encountered enormous changes it has impacted our lives.  This is a great journal that focuses on the information technology and yet more importantly the social impacts causing in every field and discipline.  In my opinion the contribution of this journal is distinctive and stimulating.”
