Politics of Technology publishes rigorously peer-reviewed research that addresses the political impact and governance of diverse technologies.
A growing number of emerging technologies significantly affect political practices and institutions. These include:
Other technological developments, to date, have little direct impact on political processes, actors and organizations. But they present unique challenges for governmental oversight, regulation and risk assessment. These include, but are not limited to:
Policies, regulations, and laws seldom stay abreast of innovation, and technological developments have unpredictable cultural, economic, environmental, political and social effects. As such, it is fitting that Politics of Technology is part of the Frontiers family of open-access journals. The path-breaking scholarship published here constitute expeditions into unsettled territories.
We encourage submissions that examine the political impacts and governance issues associated with technology from across the spectrum of political science fields and methodologies. While we provide an outlet for research that will be widely read and cited by faculty and students in the social sciences, humanities, law, and interdisciplinary fields, we also reach out to an audience that includes policy makers, technological innovators, developers and engineers, public, private and non-profit sector leaders, and journalists.
