Aims and scope

The ISI is a top-rated international journal devoted to promoting innovative approaches or practices for the design and application of information systems. The journal, on the one hand, tackles hot topics on information systems, such as modelling and metamodeling, design and redesign, maintenance, integration, security and regulatory issues, database issues and/or information retrieval, and, on the other hand, deals with emerging sub-domains and original applications of information systems. The papers submitted to the journal should offer approaches that can adapt to the diverse application environments (e.g. centralized, distributed, mobile and peer-to-peer environments), handle future challenges on information systems, and enrich the exchanges between researchers.

The ISI welcomes original research papers, technical notes and review articles on various disciplines, including but not limited to:

  • Modelling and metamodeling of information systems
  • Design and redesign of information systems
  • Maintenance of information systems
  • Integration of information systems
  • Security and regulatory issues
  • Database issues
  • Information retrieval
