Scope and Policy


JISTEM aims to publish high quality academic articles with solid methodology from the areas of Information Systems, Information Technology and Information Science concerning all aspects of Management in a multidisciplinary perspective.

All papers submitted for evaluation must be original and should not be under review in any other publication. Articles should be in accordance with the objectives proposed by the journal. All papers submitted for evaluation of JISTEM are evaluated by the Editor. If accepted, they are evaluated by the Scientific Board or ad hoc, in double blind review. A copy of the reviewers' comments is sent to the authors. If approved, the article goes through editorial advice, spelling and grammar review. The estimated timeframe for the evaluation process is two to four months.
