Information Technologies & International Development (ITID) is an interdisciplinary open-access journal that focuses on the intersection of information and communication technologies (ICTs) with the “other four billion”— the share of the world population whose countries are not yet widely connected to the Internet nor widely considered in the design of new information technologies. ITID aims to create a networked community of leading thinkers and strategists to discuss the critical issues of ICT and development, an epistemic community that crosses disciplines (especially technologists and social scientists), national boundaries, and the North and South hemispheres. It is a peer-reviewed, international, multidisciplinary quarterly designed for researchers and practitioners from the engineering and social sciences, technologists, policy makers, and development specialists. In addition to peer-reviewed original research, ITID publishes notes, letters, and reports that respond to previously published articles; summaries of conferences, workshops, and other relevant meetings; reviews of new books of interest to the field; and overviews of emerging research areas and new ideas.


Case Studies in Strategic Communicationcssc

Daren C. Brabham (Editor)

Case Studies in Strategic Communication (CSSC) is dedicated to the study of strategic communication through the case study form. Case studies illustrate the strategies, tactics, and execution of communication campaigns through in-depth coverage of a single situation. CSSC is a peer-reviewed online publication housed at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism.

Case studies have long been central to the study of strategic communication, but these cases have been scattered across textbooks and websites, are quickly outdated, are not fully representative of the many facets of strategic communication, and lack a common format useful for teachers and scholars. Through the ongoing publication of strategic communication case studies online, CSSC aims to develop a living resource of diverse case materials for teachers, scholars, and practitioners.

Joe Saltzman (Co-founding Editor)

The IJPC Journal is an online academic journal that adheres to the highest standards of peer review. Its purpose is to further the mission of The Image of the Journalist in Popular Culture Project to investigate and analyze, through research and publication, the conflicting images of journalists in every aspect of popular culture, from film, television, radio, fiction, commercials, cartoons, comic books to music, art, humor and video games — demonstrating their impact on the public’s perception of journalists.

“We believe this has been a long-neglected field for research, one that has been untapped by journalism and mass communication scholars,” co-founding Journal editor and USC Annenberg journalism professor Joe Saltzman said. “By analyzing the images of the journalist in popular culture over the centuries, the researcher can offer a new perspective on the history of journalism as well as the delicate relationship between the public and its news media. The public’s lack of confidence in the news media today is partly based on real-life examples they have seen and heard and partly on characters burned into the public memory from movies, television and fiction.”
