The Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems aims at publishing critical, yet constructive, studies of IT development and use. The journal acknowledges and encourages the highly interdisciplinary nature of such studies.
Topics include, but are not restricted to: organizational politics of IT; micro-studies of actual use; diffusion and uptake of IT; use and development of e-commerce; open source development; transformations of leisure and work following, for instance, mobile technologies; strategic and structural transformations of business organizations and sectors; software development methods and strategies; and the life on the net.
The Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems draws on the Scandinavian research tradition emphasizing engagement with the field, participation from users and multi-vocality of interests. For sure, this kind of scholarly work is not confined by geographical boundaries. Hence, the term "Scandinavian" in the title of this journal should be interpreted metaphorically rather than literally as an ambition to foster this tradition.
Methodological and theoretical pluralism is welcomed by the journal. Nonetheless, qualitative research methods are perceived as particularly fitting for the overall aim of the Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems.
The Journal aims at responding to paper contributions within 8 weeks.
