JMIS: Celebrating 30 years of publication!

View a Virtual Issue Celebrating Important Research in JMIS.

The Journal of Management Information Systems is a widely recognized and top-ranked forum for the presentation of research that advances the practice and understanding of organizational information systems. It serves those investigating new modes of information delivery and the changing landscape of information policy making, as well as practitioners and executives managing the information resource. A vital aim of the quarterly is to bridge the gap between theory and practice of management information systems.

"A cluster analysis of our results indicates a two tiered separation in the quality of the highest quality IS journals--with MIS Quarterly, Information Systems Research, and Journal of Management Information Systems belonging, in that order, to the highest A+ tier." -MIS Quarterly, December 2013

"A top ranked source for the best IS research." -Communications of the ACM

"Most representative and diverse among top-ranked IS journals." -Information Systems Research

"JMIS has made an incredible contribution to research in Information Systems. It has expanded the horizons of what we know and think of research in IS, and my colleagues and I appreciate the extensive exposure to the field of Collaborative Technology in JMIS. One of the journal's strengths is its embrace of all of the research methodologies and approaches in the field. Vladimir Zwass and his staff can be proud of this accomplishment in guiding the development of JMIS to the top tier of academic journals with the highest standards of the peer review process." -Jay Nunamaker, University of Arizona

"During the past 25 years, the JMIS has grown significantly in its importance to the Information Systems discipline. JMIS continues to seek out new and innovative research with strong theoretical and methodological foundations, with a key awareness that applications in current business settings are truly something to learn from. The efforts of the editor over the years have been outstanding in encouraging a broad spectrum of organizational, behavioral, management science, economics and technical research that has come to define what Information Systems research is all about." -Robert J. Kauffman, Arizona State University

"A primary reference for libraries interested in the relationship among computers, systems, and organizations." -Magazines for Libraries
