Thematic Issue: Labor History of Computing

IEEE Annals of the History of Computing//

IEEE Annals of the History of Computing invites article manuscript 
submissions for a thematic/special issue on the history of labor and 
computing. Manuscripts that connect to the broader literature on labor 
history are particularly encouraged. Submissions can address labor 
issues, practices, or structures within a wide range of settings 
including computer, software, networking, or semiconductor/components 
companies throughout the world; user organizations (corporations, 
government, universities, hospitals, etc.); peer production projects 
(open source); trade organizations; professional associations; etc. 
Possible themes and approaches include, but are not limited to, the 
history of work practices, work culture, shop floor dynamics, labor 
organization, legislation/lobbying, professionalization, automation and 
labor displacement, offshoring, gender/race/ethnicity and IT work, 
safety and risk in the workplace, etc.

The deadline for submission to this thematic issue is January 15, 2010. 
Manuscripts will go through IEEE Annals of the History of Computing’s 
standard peer review process. If there are more accepted manuscripts 
than slots for the issue, editors will decide which articles to include 
based on quality, coverage, and synergies between manuscripts. If there 
are accepted manuscripts not included in the issue, they will be added 
to the general publication queue and published in a later issue of IEEE 
Annals of the History of Computing.

All articles must be between 5,000 and 8,000 words, including 
citations/endnotes. To submit your manuscript go to 

Select “Write for Us” tab at the top and follow instructions (including 
selecting the Labor History thematic/special issue).

If you have any questions or would like feedback on ideas/manuscripts 
prior to submission, please contact IEEE Annals of the History of 
Computing Editor in Chief Jeffrey Yost (yostx003 at umn.edu
