Journal History

Parallel to the start of the journal in 1997, the Centre for Information Technology Studies as a Human Science (ITH) was established at the Swedish School of Library and Information Science at Göteborg University and the University of Borås. ITH was part of the University’s R&D IT programme. Since 2001, Human IT is run by an editorial board with representatives from the University of Borås and from other Nordic and international research centres. Starting with volume 7, the journal moved from both print-based and electronic publishing to pure e-publishing. The electronic version has been open access since the start.
