logoTitle -IT Road Maps Searchable Listing

Computerized bibliographic search algorithms and consultations with research experts were used to identify about 5,000 data sets, research papers and books, and Web sites that provide insight about the social and economic implications of IT. These have been sorted into a series of searchable listings called Road Maps.

Note: Each link below takes you to a "Quick Search" page that is pre-set for searching a specific Road Map. Citations have been tagged for that Road Map using a special keyword known as a "$identifier." You must retain the $identifier to stay inside the Road Map. You can add keywords, separated by a space. You can search authors, keywords, dates and journal names with the "start search" button on the Quick Search page. To search titles, you must use Advanced Search. See instructions.
