Issues in Information Systems

Published 4 times a year, Issues in Information Systems (IIS) is an open access refereed (double-blind peer review) publication (ISSN 1529-7314). IIS is an Scopus-indexed journal that publishes the latest research in practice and pedagogical topics that focus on how information systems are used to support organizations or enhance the educational process. The journal also publishes high-marked refereed (double-blind) papers that are selected by editors from the IACIS conference.

Submission Guidelines

All manuscripts must be authors' original, unpublished work. The manuscript must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Please refer to the submission guidelines/instructions for authors before submitting your paper.

Publication Ethics

Authors must review the IIS Publication Ethics before submitting their papers.

Submission Timeline

Manuscripts will be reviewed by the IIS Screening Committee which includes the editor and the associate editors within two to three weeks from the time of submission. The corresponding author will then be contacted with news of whether or not the submission will be advanced to the first round of blind reviews (or is being rejected as not suitable for publication in the journal). Typically, the blind review process takes approximately twelve to sixteen weeks. The IIS does not process any submission that does not comply with the requirements found in the submission guidelines. Papers are published online as soon as they are accepted.
