New Special Issue Call Announced on Reframing Privacy in a Networked World – see here
For 25 years, from its foundation to its current status as one of the leading journals in its field, David Avison and Guy Fitzgerald have lead the ISJ as its Editors-in-Chief. We say a sincere “thank you” to David and Guy for all their work and dedication to the Journal as they pass on the baton of chief-editorship and assume the role of Founding Editors. Read their last editorial and also a special article they have written Reflections and Opinions on 25 years with the ISJ.
As of July 1st 2012 they pass the baton to three longstanding friends of the ISJ – Robert M Davison (City University of Hong Kong), Philip Powell (Birkbeck, University of London) and Eileen Trauth (Pennsylvania State University). All three, supported by the Senior and Associate Editors, are well-positioned to write the next chapter of the ISJ as it continues in its tradition of publishing high-calibre research, of benefit to the IS community at large. Read their inaugural editorial.
The 2011 impact factor (announced end of June 2012) for ISJ is 2.067. This puts ISJ as having the fifth highest IF of those in the AIS basket of information systems journals. The previous impact factor for 2010 was 2.184.
We would like to welcome Mark Keil’s replacement as Senior Editor. Andrew Hardin from the University of Nevada steps up to the plate and we look forward to working with him in his new role. Andrew has previously been an Associate Editor for ISJ and this is a reward for all the hard work and excellent judgement he has displayed.
The ISJ Editors would like to thank Mark Keil for all his great work for ISJ as a Senior Editor which we much appreciate. Mark is stepping down due to his commitments and we wish him well.
ISJ is included in the ‘basket’ of 6 top IS journals in the field, identified by the AIS (Association of Information Systems) Senior Scholars, click here for details. Also see other indicators of ISJ quality and recognition here, and reasons to publish in ISJ here.
