APJIS welcomes proposals for Special Issues that are designed not only to draw attention to new emerging topics in information systems (IS) but also to encourage insightful and influential research on topics that fall within the scope of the journal.
Potential Guest Editors who would like to propose a Special Issue are invited to prepare a proposal and then submit it to the Editor-in-Chief through email@example.com. Then, the Senior Editorial team will consider whether the proposal is of interest to the journal. When you submit a proposal, it needs to include at least the following: the title of the Special Issue, a brief CV of the proposed Guest Editors, a statement of the Special Issues significance for IS area, and an outline time schedule.
Once the proposal is approved, the Guest Editors are expected to actively encourage submissions based on the Call for Papers. Being invited to submit a manuscript does not mean that publication is guaranteed. The review process by which Special Issue manuscripts are handled is nearly identical to that of regular submissions to APJIS.
The Guest Editors make decisions at all stages of the reviewing process, up to the final acceptance decision, which is made by the Editor-in-Chief. The Guest Editors are expected to adhere to all APJIS guidelines, including the Statement of Editorial Policy, Code of Ethics, Instructions for Contributors, Guidelines for Reviewers and Style Guide. Submissions, which the Guest Editors find unsuited to the topic of the Special Issue, but still appropriate for APJIS in general, are transferred to the regular process, if necessary.
Once sufficient papers have been accepted for publication, the Guest Editors and the Editor-in-Chief discuss and agree on the contents and order of the Special Issue. In addition, the Guest Editors are asked to prepare an editorial introduction and submit it with accepted papers to the Editor-in-Chief. The maximum length of a Special Issue is one issue of the Journal. However, a Special Issue may be smaller depending on the number of accepted manuscripts. Guest Editors are responsible for ensuring successful completion of the Special Issue.
