The following offers guidelines (but see also the Submissions page for further guidelines), but please inquire before submission if your case does not fit this proforma e.g a shorter case or unusual subject. A teaching case is usually 4.000-8.000 words in length (e.g., shorter cases for undergraduate teaching or longer for postgraduate and MBA), has illustrations, and quotes where appropriate, and is based on real life circumstances. Aspects of the case may be anonymized where information is particularly sensitive, and would hinder publication otherwise. The teaching case can be based on primary research, but also on secondary sources. We are looking for cases that are up-to-date, though they may also include the history of how the organization, or events reached their present point. A teaching case should be written to promote discussion of the issues raised, setting out problem areas, giving enough history and detail, and raising questions at the end. The teaching case should be as complete in itself as possible, and be written and presented attractively.
Submission should be of the Teaching Case itself, and in a separate document a Teaching Note for the case indicating guidance for teachers including objectives, who to use it with, suggested questions, and guidelines on answers and further reading. For examples of teaching cases look at proceedings of the International Conference of Information Systems and also in The JIT Teaching Cases electronic journal http://www.palgrave-journals.com/jittc/
Cases will also be considered for further development and publication in the Journal of Information Technology Teaching Cases (JITTC), edited by Leslie Willcocks of LSE and Chris Sauer of University of Oxford.
