JISAR - Journal of Information Systems Applied Research


Journal of Information Systems Applied Research

Submission and Acceptance Policies

The Journal of Information Systems Applied Research (JISAR) is a double-blind peer reviewed academic journal published by ISCAP, Information Systems and Computing Academic Professionals. Publishing frequency is three issues a year. The first date of publication was December 1, 2008.

JISAR is published online in connection with the ISCAP (Information Systems and Computing Academic Professionals) Conference, where submissions are also double-blind peer reviewed. Our sister publication, the Proceedings of the ISCAP Conference, features all papers, teaching cases and abstracts from the conference. (ISCAP Proceedings).

The journal acceptance review process involves a minimum of three double-blind peer reviews, where both the reviewer is not aware of the identities of the authors and the authors are not aware of the identities of the reviewers. The initial reviews happen before the conference. At that point papers are divided into award papers (top 15%) and other submitted works. The non-award winning 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 JISAR. Currently the acceptance rate for the journal is approximately 35%.

Questions should be addressed to the editor at editor@jisar.org.
