The Journal of Community Informatics provides an opportunity for Community Informatics researchers and others to share their work with the larger community. Through the Journal's application of a rigorous peer review process, knowledge and awareness concerning the community use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is being brought to a wider professional audience.
In addition, the Journal makes available key documents, “points of view”, notes from the field and other materials that will be of wider interest within the community of those working in Community Informatics.
Original funding for the Journal was provided by the Canadian Research Alliance for Community Innovation and Networking (CRACIN), a project funded by the Canadian Social Science and Humanities Research Council.
