The Computing, Information Systems, Development Informatics and Allied Research Journal (CISDIAR) provides a distinctive international perspective on theories, issues, frameworks and practice at the nexus of computing, informations systems Developments Informatics, Business Management and policy. A new wave of multidisciplinary research efforts is required to provide pragmatic solution to most of the problems the world faces today. With Computing and Information Technology (IT) providing the needed momentum to drive growth and development in different spheres of human endeavors, there is a need to create platforms through which breakthrough research and research findings that cuts across different discipline can be reported. Such dissemination to a global audience will in turn support future discoveries, sharpen the understanding of theoretical underpinnings and improve practices. The CISDIAR is a research and practice Journal that publishes cutting edge research in Computing, Business, Technology, Management Sciences, Information Systems, Education, Development Economics, Health Informatics and other allied fields. Short communications/reviews on development informatics activities that appropriate design, localization, development, implementation and usage of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to achieve development goals are also acceptable. We promote policy research that seeks to employ established (and proposed) legal and social frameworks to support the achievement of development goals through ICTs - particularly the millennium development goals. Paper submission instructions can be found on the "Submission Guide" page.
The CISDIAR Journal will publish research articles, short communications, empirical research, case studies, conference proceedings and reviews (including book reviews) in the following focus areas (and other allied themes): General Computing; Hardware Technology; Software Engineering; Web Technologies; Information Technology; Information Systems; Information Science; Data & Information Management; Information Security; Business Computing; Business Information Systems; Computer Networks; Artificial Intelligence; Theory of Computation & Automata; Software Metrics and Measurements; Knowledge-based Systems; Database Management;Data Mining & Data Warehousing; Knowledge Management e-Government portals; E-Systems (Webocracy, e-Democracy, e-Learning, e-Commerce; e-Government & e-Health, e-Agriculture); Computer Forensic & Data Privacy; citizen centric information systems; Web-enabled knowledge management; ICT enabled systems in the public and private service; Internet Governance; Information Systems Policy; TeleHealth & Telemedicine & Telemarketing; Design Structures & Annotations; Computer Graphics & Games; Multimedia & Mixed Media Systems; E-Library and Virtual Library Systems; Wireless Networks & Applications; Economic Intelligence Systems; Development Informatics; Mobile Applications & Technologies; Information Technology Policies; Web Usage Ethics & Policies; Enterprise Informatics and Policies; Social Informatics, Social Media and Policies
