Call for Papers


The International Journal of Teaching and Case studies seeks original manuscripts for the Special Issue on “Information Systems: The new research agenda the emerging curriculum and the new teaching paradigm” scheduled to appear in a double late 2006 issue.

Information Systems Discipline in the Context of Computing and Information Science has played a key role in the promotion of the vision for the Knowledge Society.


Nowadays Information Systems discipline faces new challenges. New emerging technologies as well as matured approaches for the social, technical and developmental role of IS, provide a new context for the evolution of the discipline for the next years.


In the same run, Academia and Industry are seeking for convergence in the development and exploitation of sound propositions in terms of Theory, Applications and Technologies.


As in every discipline formal education is having a key role of discourse. In this special issue we have a clear strategy. We want to develop relevant knowledge and to promote fresh ideas for a new teaching paradigm for IS education. This is why we organize this double issue around three thematic areas:

·        New Research Agenda of Information Systems and Integration with the Classical IS Curriculum

·        The Emerging Curriculum for IS

·        The New Teaching Paradigm and Teaching Case Studies



The scope of the call includes Positions Articles with Argumentation for the New Agenda of IS, and the Emerging Curriculum as well as high quality Teaching Cases and Empirical Studies aiming to support this vision.


Types of Submissions:

·        Position Articles [2500-4000 words]
