The Journal of Digital Innovation for Humanity (JDIH) was established to meet the needs of the emerging digital sphere which is exponentially increasing in both research, practice, and general public use, with the ultimate aim to become an outlet that connects digital real-world experiences with the innovators. JDIH examines issues at the intersection of the humanities, physical and social sciences, organization and management, environmental sciences, and information technology. In other words, JDIH aims to make sense of our ever-increasing digital world.
JDIH rose from the fast-evolving world of technology innovations such as social media, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, blockchain (cryptocurrencies), and data science, among others. These innovations are astonishing in the way they have upset and disrupted existing and well-established paradigms, notions, and processes. This is only in the business sense, but more importantly how they have disrupted and changed humans altogether, including (but not limited to) lifestyle, behavior, and physiology.
These innovations continue to accelerate at a faster pace creating a race of computers against humans (workers). If not already happened, it is expected that computers will surpass human workers redefining the paradigm of their existence. It seems to me that everyone is overtaken with keeping up with computers and no one is preparing for the aftermath. What will humans do when computers take over many if not all aspects of their lives and how will their being (ie. Computers) influence the fundamental physiology of humans?
At this point, there are only questions that continue to increase with few, if any, acceptable answers. The future of humans living with digital innovations is only speckled at best and we can only fantasize about it. Many have provided all sorts of future scenarios such as Amazon making purchasing decisions on one’s behalf and artificial intelligence taking over many human activities such as driving. We humans, have to re-orient our thinking, come together, discuss, lobby, and find innovative workable paradigms on how we will co-exist with computer-based intelligence.
Proper dialogue at this digital frontier is being ignored and efforts to bring all stakeholders together into one single forum must be realized. This is the mission of the proposed Journal of Digital Innovation for Humanity.
All papers are processed as soon as they are submitted and published within 3 days of their acceptance. Therefore, publications are processed as they are submitted (continuously) and each volume is annual.
JDIH is part of INDIRE, which is a not-for-profit, independent, multidisciplinary, and international project.

To Dialogue for Human-Technology Wellbeing.
The Journal of Digital Innovation for Humanity addresses the interaction and relationship between emerging technologies and all aspects of the human self. It emphasizes the need for a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in all aspects of the absorption and assimilation of technology in human development and life.
The journal is interdisciplinary, covering research about all dimensions of the human element as it relates to the systems and contexts in which humans develop, perform, operate, interact, and communicate. The journal is open to all, no matter what profession, discipline, or degree one may have. We publish a large spectrum of different types of works including original articles includes and reappraisals of the literature, empirical studies, quantitative and qualitative contributions to the theories, applications of cases, and, accounts including but not limited to interactivity with systems between innovative technology and humanity.
