Journals and Journal Rankings

Information systems, like other fields, has several publishing outlets for researchers. Not all outlets have the same acceptance rates, submission rates, reviewing procedures, or editorial boards. Naturally, prestige is at least partially dependent on those factors. Rather than have a set of "acceptable" journals imposed upon us, AIS offers these resources for its members to support their tenure and promotion cases.
