Studies as a Human Science
The Centre for Information Technology
Studies as a Human Science (ITH) started in 1997 as a
collaborative project between the Swedish School of Library
and Information Science (University College of Borås and
Göteborg University) and the School of Business and
Informatics (University College of Borås). ITH was part of
the UCB research-oriented IT programme. Part of ITHs mission was
Contribute to the formation of the research area through
the publishing of a journal, and the arrangement of a seminar
series and conferences.
Initiate research projects and create possibilities to conduct
research at a post-graduate level.
In 1997, ITH began to publish the journal Human IT.
We also had an active seminar series with several local and
international speakers. Lately, the journal has been in focus.
Much work has been invested in making it into a high quality
product and into making it the centre of a network which
attracts IT researchers within the human sciences in Sweden
and abroad. Since 2001, Human IT is managed by an
editorial board with members from several of the departments
at UCB and from other Swedish and international research
centres. As of 2002, Human IT is a refereed journal.
ITH is financed by the UCB Research and Education Board. The
editorial office is located at the Swedish School of Library
and Information Science.
