Since late 2002, the ICTpr website at http://cirac.qut.edu.au/ictpr/ is part of the ethnographic action research network in the initiative for ‘ICTs and Poverty Reduction’ supported by UNESCO. The site is a first step towards building key tools in the exchanges and communication between the lead researchers who conceptualise and guide the research process and the action researchers located at the different project sites. It is intended to optimise such exchange for rigorous and productive research.
The site is hosted by the Creative Industries Research and Applications Centre in Brisbane, Australia. It is used by a total of 37 members that include lead researchers, action researchers, project coordinators and the team at UNESCO. Members access the site from: New Delhi, Kolkata, Baduria, Bangalore, Budikote, Chennai and other places in Tamil Nadu, Darjeeling, and Uttaranchal in India; Sitakund in Bangladesh; Tansen and Lumbini in Nepal, Jakar in Bhutan, Uva and other places in Sri Lanka; Brisbane in Australia; London in the UK.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
