The Journal of Information Systems Education (JISE)

JISE Publishing Transition

At the January 2017 meeting of the EDSIG Board of Directors, after several days of discussion and analysis, the board voted unanimously to convert JISE to a 100% online and free journal. All papers will be put on the JISE website as full-text PDFs; there will be no subscription fees for individuals or institutions; and there will be no paper submission, processing, or publication fees for authors. In essence, JISE is moving to a Platinum Open Access model.

Authors will benefit from this change by having their accepted research available globally without the need for subscriptions or access to research databases. Research published in JISE will reach a broader and more diverse audience. The greater dissemination of advanced and improved IS pedagogy will enable IS academics around the world to become better teachers and researchers. A better educated workforce, in particular with regards to information systems and technologies, will create a better world for us all.

All current subscriptions have been extended to include any remaining hard-copy issues. No new subscriptions are being accepted. Most of the past issues of JISE now have full-text PDFs available on the JISE website, but the move will be complete (along with a re-design of the JISE website, including new functionality and a new organizational structure) in the fall of 2017. Volume 27 Issue 4 will be the final printed issue.

The Journal of Information Systems Education (JISE) is an academic, peer reviewed IS journal that focuses on IS education.

JISE seeks original articles on current topics of special interests to information systems educators. The journal publishes applications-oriented and research articles covering information systems education and training topics. Curriculum design and implementation issues and research or application oriented articles that describe curriculum, pedagogy, professional development or educational facilities issues will be considered for publication in the journal. Possible topics include: course projects/cases, lecture materials, curriculum design and/or implementation, workshops, faculty/student internal/external programs, hardware/software selection, industry relations, etc.

JISE welcomes your submissions. All manuscripts will be refereed by a rigorous evaluation process involving at least two blind reviews by qualified academic, industrial, or governmental IS professionals and members of the editorial office. Submissions will be judged not only on the suitability of the content, but also on the readability and clarity of the prose. All manuscripts selected for publication must maintain a high standard of content, style and value to the readership. An important criterion for acceptance of a manuscript for publication is the relevance of the work to the educational/training environment and its potential usefulness for advancing the quality of IS education or training.

JISE is indexed in major research databases.


The mission of the Journal of Information Systems Education is to be the premier journal on information systems (IS) education. To support that mission, JISE emphasizes quality and relevance in the papers that it publishes. In addition, JISE recognizes the international influences on IS education and seeks international input in all aspects of the journal, including content, authorship of papers, readership, paper reviewers, and Editorial Board membership.

To accomplish this mission, JISE continually seeks original articles of special interest to IS educators. Submissions should generally cover one of the following topics: teaching tips; innovative classroom practices; IS curriculum issues; research in IS education; cases for use in an IS classroom; pedagogy in teaching IS subjects; teaching assessment; industry relations; or other related topics in IS education.

JISE is a refereed international journal sponsored by the Education Special Interest Group (EDSIG) of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP). Comments regarding the mission of JISE should be directed to the Editor.
