JISE is an elite scholarly journal that publishes current topics of special interests to information systems (IS) educators. The journal publishes application-oriented and research articles covering IS education and training topics, including: curriculum design and implementation issues, and IS research or application oriented articles that describe curriculum, pedagogy, professional development or educational facilities issues. Possible topics include: course projects/cases, lecture materials, curriculum design and/or implementation, faculty/student internal/external programs, software evaluation and selection, industry relations, etc. (

Individuals interested in submitting a proposal and being a Guest Editor for a special issue of JISE should submit a proposal, in the form of an e-mail, to Lee Freeman ( that includes the following:

1. The proposed topic. Please provide a short statement that describes why this would be a good topic for a JISE Special Issue.

2. Who would be the Guest Editor(s). We encourage collaboration among two or three Guest Editors. If there is more than one Guest Editor, we encourage one of the Guest Editors to reside outside the US. Please provide a short resume for each Guest Editor that highlights IS teaching, IS education-related publications, and editorial experience (reviewing, Assistant Editor experience, etc.). The publication record and editorial experience of the proposed Special Issue Guest Editor(s) will be considered when evaluating proposals.

3. How you would accomplish the review process. If your proposal for the Special Issue is approved, the Guest Editor(s) for the Special Issue must recruit individuals willing to help review papers submitted for the Special Issue. Each paper submitted must have at least two quality reviews to ensure that it meets our high quality standards before publishing.

4. A brief statement describing how you would solicit papers for the Special issue (AISWORLD announcement, personal solicitations, etc.). The Call for Papers (CFP) will appear in two issues of JISE at a minimum. The CFP will also be posted on the JISE website (

The Special Issue Guest Editor(s) may not be an author or co-author on any paper submitted paper for the Special Issue, except for a short article introducing the special issue. Special Issue topics must be congruent with the mission of JISE and be a topic that will generate sufficient interest and quality submissions from the community.
