The eJournal of ICT & Work Environment (eJIWE) provides a forum for the discussion of research on the philosophy, history, economics and practices of ICT and work environment dynamics, and welcomes contributions from all scholars and practitioners with an interest in any of its domains. Young Scholars (i.e. MSc, MA, MPhil, PhD, and recent PhD graduates) are also particularly encouraged to contribute. eJIWE transcends cultural and geographical boundaries as it explores a diverse range of issues relating to the concept, development and application of information and communications technologies (ICTs) in work environment, asking such questions and domains as:
* What are the new and evolving forms of information communication
technologies in work environment? What direction will these forms take?
* ICTs facilitating globalization; and how might this affect conceptions
of local identity, ethnic differences and regional sub-cultures,
particularly in work related issues ?
* Are ICTs leading to an age of electronic surveillance and social control at workplace? What are the implications for policing criminal activity, employee privacy, human capital competitive edge, industrial relations and public expression?
* How are ICTs affecting daily work life and social structures such as the family, work and organization, employee relations, commerce and business, education, health care and leisure activities?
* To what extent do the virtual worlds constructed using ICTs impact on the construction of objects, spaces and entities in the work or industrial world?
