Call for Papers
Journal of Digital Information announces a Special Issue on
Information Design Models and Processes
Special issue Editor: David Lowe
University of Technology, Sydney
Submission deadline: 15 December 2003
Publication: April 2004
Submissions are invited for a special issue of the Information Management
theme of JoDI on information design models and processes.
A crucial aspect of Web systems is the way in which information is utilised
and managed. Recent work on areas as diverse as topic maps, information
architectures, adaptation of UML, agile development methods such as extreme
programming, and modelling for the semantic Web, have all contributed to an
emerging understanding of how to design the information structures that
underpin the Web (and of course much of this work has in turn been informed
by research in areas like hypertext and HCI). Despite this the research
outcomes have had questionable impact on current commercial practice -
something of significant concern as Web systems mature and become an
increasingly integral element of our social infrastructure.
Much work remains on supporting the wide adoption of emerging modelling
approaches and development processes. There are numerous unanswered
questions around aspects such as: what these models ought to capture; how
they relate information design to functional design; and how the design
process accommodates changing client and developer understanding of
information designs during the development. This special issue will focus
on how this body of work might best support practical improvement to Web
