JISE Constituents and IS Community,

With the help of Alka Harriger (the first EIC of JISE), James Pope (a former colleague of Paul Zhang @ University of North Alabama who is currently working in UK), and Kevin Elder (the third EIC of JISE), we have successfully found all the papers in 12 previously missing JISE issues, including 1(1), 1(2), 1(4), 2(1), 3(1), 4(1), 4(4), 5(1), 7(4), 8(1), 10(1), and 10(3-4). The papers in these 12 missing issues have been uploaded to the AIS eLibrary and the JISE website as well as some major indexing databases. However, three papers are still missing from the JISE archives. They are:

  • Becker, S. A., McGuire, E. G., & Medsker, L. R. (1992). An Information Systems Instructional Model for Supporting the DPMA 1990 Guidelines. Journal of Information Systems Education, 4(2), 21-26.
  • Hosseini, J. (1993). Application of Bloom's Taxonomy and Piaget Model of Cognitive Processes to Teaching of Management Information Systems Concepts. Journal of Information Systems Education, 5(3), 35-46.
  • Lee, C. C., Kettinger, W. J., & Kullboer, J.-P. (1996). Market Segmentation of Information Systems Academic Programs based on Job Placement: A Model and Pilot Study. Journal of Information Systems Education, 8(2-3), 57-65.
