The Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology (JASIST) has issued a Call for Papers on Information Behaviour and Information Practices Theory. The Special Issue aims to bring together scholars who are interested in developing theory – and exploring how to incorporate theory – in information behaviour and information practices research.
According to JASIST, while there is a long and rich tradition of creating models and frameworks in information behaviour, criticism remains that there is a lack of cohesive theory and/or that theory borrowed from other fields may be treated in shallow ways. This special issue proposes to continue and extend the work began in Theories of Information Behavior (Fisher et al., 2005), a book composed of the contributions from the participants of the 2003 ASIS&T SIG-USE Symposium.
