Social Informatics. Social Informatics

Social Informatics includes comprehensive sections on relevant fields, infrastrctures, news, journals, associations, study programs and research centers. Social Informatics is an interdisciplinary perspective that uses both, the tools of the social science and the tools of the computer science to analyze the interaction between technology (usually information technology) and society. In other words we can say that SI takes into account social aspects of computerization. SI analyses consider an array of relevant factors, including social, cultural, organizational, and other contextual components. [Marcus P. Zillman, M.S., A.M.H.A. Author/Speaker/Consultant]
