Description

The International Journal of Actor-Network Theory and Technological Innovation (IJANTTI) publishes research articles covering a wide range of topics related to Actor-Network Theory (ANT) and its use as a means of exploring socio-technical phenomena. An important goal for the journal is to facilitate publication of the body of research relating to the use of Actor-Network Theory as a means of understanding various socio-technical phenomena and providing examples and case studies of technological innovation. The journal facilitates the distribution of a wide range of research of this type. Much, but not all, of this research relates to the implementation and use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), as these inevitably involve interactions between technology and people. This is the area in which ANT is particularly useful and articles along these lines are encouraged. Other areas of special interest are the use of ANT as an analytical framework for research in education and in nursing. This journal covers a range of topics related to ANT. These topics include the development of Actor-Network Theory itself, as well as case studies of its use to assist in the explanation of various socio-technical phenomena. It also includes topics relating to technological innovation, both those using ANT as an explanatory framework and those using other approaches.

Mission

The mission of the International Journal of Actor-Network Theory and Technological Innovation (IJANTTI) is to provide a forum for general discussion of actor-network theory (ANT) and examine examples of its use in offering explanations for various socio-technical phenomena. The journal covers a wide range of topics related to actor-network theory, including those dealing with the development of actor-network theory itself, as well as case studies of its use to assist in the explanation of various socio-technical phenomena. The journal publishes articles that discuss topics relating to technological innovation, both those using actor-network theory as an explanatory framework and those using other approaches. Of particular interest is topics related to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). It has been more than 25 years since Latour, Callon, and Law put together their ideas and concepts in the first papers on ANT, but for some time ANT was regarded by many as little more than a curiosity. In recent years however, the ICT research community has begun to discover the power of using ANT as an explanatory framework for many of the things in which it is interested. Implementation and use of information and communication technologies inevitably involves the interactions of both technology and people, and this is the area in which ANT is particularly useful. Other areas of particular interest are the use of ANT as an analytical framework for research into aspects of education and nursing. Thus, the main goal of this journal is to facilitate international growth in the body of research investigating the value of using actor-network theory as a means of understanding socio-technical phenomena and technological innovation.

Testimonials and Reviews

"Things are always changing and actor-networks act as a strong paradigm to explore and take advantage of these changes. With ANT we can act and anticipate action in social spaces, organizational contexts, as well as in deeply technological settings. IJANTTI is a brave experience, the only consistent experience in this field and I'm sure it will be more and more an inevitable reference paper."
- Dr. José Figueiredo, Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal
