    Aims and Scope


    Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW): The Journal of Collaborative Computing and Work Practices is devoted to innovative research in computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW). It provides an interdisciplinary and international forum for the debate and exchange of ideas concerning theoretical, practical, technical, and social issues in CSCW.

    The CSCW Journal arose in response to the growing interest in the design, implementation and use of technical systems (including computing, information, and communications technologies) which support people working cooperatively, and its scope remains to encompass the multifarious aspects of research within CSCW and related areas.

    The CSCW Journal focuses on research oriented towards the development of collaborative computing technologies on the basis of studies of actual cooperative work practices (where ‘work’ is used in the wider sense). That is, it welcomes in particular submissions that (a) report on findings from ethnographic or similar kinds of in-depth fieldwork of work practices with a view to their technological implications, (b) report on empirical evaluations of the use of extant or novel technical solutions under real-world conditions, and/or (c) develop technical or conceptual frameworks for practice-oriented computing research based on previous fieldwork and evaluations.

Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.
