Dear Colleagues

[Apologies for cross postings.]

We have pleasure in announcing a call for papers for a *special issue *of
the Journal of Community Informatics, focusing on Southern African
countries (Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland
and Zimbabwe).

University academics in South Africa should take note that JoCI is indexed
by the IBSS, and published *research* *articles *will therefore be eligible
for accreditation at your universities.

We welcome submissions of completed research articles, case studies or
 book reviews relating to the following:

·         Internet and ICT use and appropriation by specific groups,
especially disadvantaged groups;

·         The use of ICTs for community based service delivery as for
example in health, municipal services, education, amongst others;

·         Internet content production (blogs, sites, etc.) aimed at social
and community development;

·         The role of mobile telephony in a Community Informatics context
in relation to grassroots development;

·         Analyses of initiatives for democratization of internet and ICT
for social development;

·         Policy analysis of specific countries or cross-country analyses
of national policy and how this relates to community based use of ICTs;

·         Investigations of the social, political and cultural aspects of
the ‘digital divide’;

·         Community informatics as it relates to e-Democracy,
e-Participation, and e-Government;

education, and for cultural production and preservation;
