The June 2016 issue of Journal of Information Science (volume 42, issue 3) has just been published. This is a special issue of the journal that comprises twelve articles developed from 54 papers presented at the Information: Interactions and Impact (i3) conference held in Aberdeen in June 2015. A guest editorial, co-authored by Peter Reid and Katie Cooper of Robert Gordon University, provides an overview of each contribution.
Seven of us from the Centre for Social Informatics participated in the conference: see the blogged review (with photos) from July 2015. Here we delivered six papers in total. Of these, two appear as full articles in this special issue of the Journal of Information Science. These are:
- The adoption process in management innovation: A Knowledge Management case study by Louise Rasmussen and Hazel Hall
- The census as an information source in public policy-making by Lynn Killick, Hazel Hall, Alistair S Duff and Mark Deakin
This is the third time that I have published work presented at i3: following the 2013 conference Jan Auernhammer and I wrote up our work on organizational culture in knowledge creation, creativity and innovation (also for the Journal of Information Science), and in 2009 Gunilla Widen, Lorraine Paterson wrote up our work on online information sharing behaviours and social exchange theory for Libri.
The i3 conference takes place every two years. We’re already looking forward to summer 2017 when we hope to make further contributions to the conference and, we hope, be invited to develop our work for further dissemination in the form of refereed journal articles.
