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 sponsored by the 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 ISCAP Conference and specifically topics related to Information Systems (IS) Applied Research. The CONISAR Proceedings features papers and presentations from the conference related to IS Applied Research. The top papers from Applied Research focus area are published in JISAR. See the ISCAP Conference 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 ISCAP. 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 35%.

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