Journal of Information Systems Applied Research
The Journal of Information Systems Applied Research (JISAR) is a double-blind peer-reviewed academic journal sponsored by the Education Special Interest Group (EDSIG) and Information Systems and Computing Academic Professionals (ISCAP). Publishing frequency is two to four times per year. The first date of publication was December 1, 2008.
JISAR is published online (http://www.jisar.org) in connection with the Conference on Information Systems Applied Research (CONISAR). The CONISAR Proceedings features all papers and presentations from the conference. The top papers from CONISAR are published in JISAR. See the CONISAR submission guidelines for details.
The journal acceptance review process involves a minimum of three double-blind peer reviews, where both (i) the reviewer is not aware of the identities of the authors and (ii) the authors are not aware of the identities of the reviewers. The initial reviews happen before CONISAR. At that point papers are divided into award papers (top 15%), top journal papers (top 30%), unsettled papers, and paper submitted after the deadline for journal consideration. The unsettled papers are subjected to a second round of blind peer review to establish whether they will be accepted to the journal or not. Those papers that are deemed of sufficient quality are accepted for publication in the JISAR journal.
Currently the acceptance rate for the journal is below 40%.
JISAR focuses on IS applied research including (but not limited to) the following topics:
