In a world increasingly awash in information, the field of information science has become an umbrella stretched so broadly as to threaten its own integrity. However, while traditional information science seeks to make sense of information systems against a social, cultural, and political backdrop, there exists a lack of current literature exploring how such transactions can exert force in the other direction—that is, how information systems mold the individuals who utilize them and society as a whole.

The Handbook of Research on Innovations in Information Retrieval, Analysis, and Management explores new developments in the field of information and communication technologies and explores how complex information systems interact with and affect one another, woven into the fabric of an information-rich world. Touching on such topics as machine learning, research methodologies, and mobile data aggregation, this book targets an audience of researchers, developers, managers, strategic planners, and advanced-level students.

This handbook contains chapters on topics including, but not limited to, customer experience management, information systems planning, cellular networking, public policy development, and knowledge governance.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Jorge Tiago Martins is a Lecturer in Organisational Informatics at The University of Sheffield's Information School, UK. His overarching research and teaching area is the management and use of information technology (IT) in complex organisations. He is interested in the intersection between Information Management/ Knowledge Management systems and organisation, with particular emphasis on structures, cultures, work practices, behaviour, and change. These intersecting research interests form the basis of his dual affiliation to the Information Systems, and to the Knowledge and Information Management research groups.
Andreea Molnar is a Lecturer with the School of Creative Technologies, Portsmouth University, United Kingdom. Previously, she has been a postdoctoral researcher at Arizona State University, United States, Brunel University, United Kingdom and City University London, United Kingdom. She has a PhD in Technology Enhanced Learning from the National College of Ireland (under a scholarship funded by the Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology) and an MSc in Modelling and Simulations from Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Prior to enrolling in the PhD programme she has worked as a Software Developer at Silnet Consulting, Italy and Fortech, Romania.
