Information and Organization Design Series

Description

An organization uses information to manage its activities. Information is both emergent and designed. The design of an organization is the choice of the organization’s structure, properties and its information systems for managing these activities. This is a revised information processing view of organization. The challenge is to devise organizations, which deal effectively with abundant information which remains incomplete and uncertain.

This series is broadly based and invites contributions from all social science, engineering, computer science, business, communications and related disciplines. The organizational unit can be the project, the small group or team, the departmental unit, the organization or the societal level.

Authors are encouraged to take a personal as well as a professional point of view.  Books in the series can be:

-a book which supports instruction,

-a research book which develops an integrated stream of research and develops a particular focus,

-a state-of-the-art statement which integrates existing research and develops a new point of view,

-edited books which advance the science and practice of a focused topic,

-a book supported by CD-ROM and/or web based materials

Publication Criteria
