Reflections on information systems practice, education and research: 10 years of the Information Systems Journal

Reflections on information systems practice, education and research: 10 years of the Information Systems Journal
This paper celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the Information Systems Journal (ISJ) and the Editors reflect on the papers that have been published over that period and the changes that have occurred in the discipline of information systems. In the opening paper of ISJ, we suggested that the 'launch of a new journal in information systems prompts thought and debate concerning the state of the subject area and some contemplation of its past and future'. We discussed three areas of this 'not-yet-established discipline': practice, education and research. In this follow-up paper, we forgo our convention of ISJ editors not publishing in the Journal. We examine the issues raised in the first paper and consider what has happened in the intervening years as charted in the ISJ. The overview is necessarily selective, probably Anglocentric (with, perhaps, a slight Francophile tinge), sometimes downright opinionated, as well as over-estimating, perhaps, the contribution of one particular IS journal.

Abstract

This paper celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the Information Systems Journal (ISJ) and the Editors reflect on the papers that have been published over that period and the changes that have occurred in the discipline of information systems. In the opening paper of ISJ, we suggested that the 'launch of a new journal in information systems prompts thought and debate concerning the state of the subject area and some contemplation of its past and future'. We discussed three areas of this 'not-yet-established discipline': practice, education and research. In this follow-up paper, we forgo our convention of ISJ editors not publishing in the Journal. We examine the issues raised in the first paper and consider what has happened in the intervening years as charted in the ISJ. The overview is necessarily selective, probably Anglocentric (with, perhaps, a slight Francophile tinge), sometimes downright opinionated, as well as over-estimating, perhaps, the contribution of one particular IS journal.
