About the Journal

Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems (SJIS) is the journal of the IRIS Association, which is the Scandinavian chapter of the Association for Information Systems.

 
The IRIS (Information Systems Research in Scandinavia) Association is a non-profit organization aiming to promote research and research education in the use, development, and management of information systems in Scandinavia, and making that research known in the international research community and among practitioners.
The IRIS Association has as its major purpose to develop and maintain the following:
  • The Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems
  • The IRIS conference

SJIS publishes research on development and use of information systems and related organizational and societal issues.
The journal publishes two issues per year, comprising regular research papers, reflection notes, and special issues. All papers are available in the free .

The reflection notes consist of an invited  essay authored by one or more senior scholars, and a number of invited response papers from key researchers within the focused area. As an example, the reflection notes in issue 28(2) focused on the smart machine.

The special issues are edited by a team of guest editors based on submission of a special issue proposal to the coordinating editor. The special issues cover important and timely topics within the scope of the journal. Examples of recent SJIS special issues include:
  • Distributed participatory design
  • Genre theory in IS
  • Development and use of web-based information systems
  • Scandinavian Researcher Career Retrospectives
  • Rejuvenating Enterprise Systems
  • Sustainable Development Goals in IS Research
