When you submit your final, formatted manuscript to JISE, you are attesting that the manuscript is original and that exclusive copyright of the material in the manuscript is held by the manuscript's author(s). You are further attesting that you transfer this exclusive copyright of the material in the manuscript to Information Systems and Computing Academic Professionals (ISCAP) through the publication Journal of Information Systems Education (JISE).
All authors are strongly encouraged to have their manuscripts professionally edited by a copy editing service. A copy editor will check the manuscript for grammar, spelling, syntax, and punctuation; consistent use of terminology throughout the manuscript; proper use of the English language; and overall layout. Sometimes referred to as proofreaders, copy editors often charge by the manuscript length or the requested turnaround time in combination with the specific services provided.
