The Journal of Information Technology Teaching Cases (JITTC) is a sister journal of the Journal of Information Technology. It has the sole purpose of publishing case studies in a form designed for use in teaching. It has the same editors, editorial board and advisory board as the Journal of Information Technology. It applies the same standards, uses the same review process, and has the same high level of rigour and credibility as the Journal of Information Technology.
It is designed to be used by academics, scholars, advanced students, and professional instructors who want real examples on which to base teaching on contemporary information and communications technology themes. Case topics will include but not be restricted to technology and the management of IT, including strategy, business models, change, infrastructure, organization, human resources, sourcing, system development and implementation, communications, technology developments, technology impacts and outcomes, technology futures, national policies and standards.
The Journal recognizes the importance of cases being current in terms of both the technologies, management practices and issues they depict. Consequently, it does not require that all aspects of each case be novel, only that the case should have potentially greater impact in the classroom than existing cases.
JITTC focuses on cases that have been developed through a rigorous research process. Only cases based on empirical research are published. Fictional cases are not accepted although cases that have been anonymised are acceptable where necessary.
All cases have a fully refereed Teaching Note. The Teaching Note is not published and is only available to bona fide teachers in higher and further education so as to ensure students do not have access.
