Asia Pacific Journal of Information Systems (APJIS) is an open-access double-blinded peer review journal. APJIS publishes quarterly about 5-8 articles through a very selective review process. All published articles are available for access without any cost or fee from its official web site (http://apjis.or.kr), which contributes the knowledge growth of both academic and practitioner communities in the information systems (IS) field.

APJIS has published high-quality academic articles in the IS field since 1990. The publisher of APJIS is the Korea Society of Management Information Systems (KMIS), which is the largest academic and professional society in the IS field in South Korea. Though KMIS is a regional society, its members are highly globalized, including most of the Asia Pacific areas (East, South East, Middle East, and Central Asia), Oceania, and Western areas (North America and Europe).

Its prior name, Journal of MIS Research, was changed to APJIS in 2009 with a goal to be the best journal in the Asia Pacific regions. To achieve this goal, APJIS started to publish English articles from 2009 and now it became a pure English-publication journal since 2015. Along with this strategic transformation, the quantity and quality of its citation is growing fast. APJIS is listed in various academic journal databases, including the Scopus (from 2018) and the Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) Journal Quality List (from 2019). It is currently under examination for the inclusion in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI).

Scope of Journal

The primary goal of APJIS is to advance knowledge about the effective and efficient utilization of information technologies (IT) at the individual, group, organization, society, and country levels for the improvement of economic and social welfare. Through the last 30 years of publications, APJIS has filled gaps between global and regional IS trends, behavioral phenomena, and managerial issues especially in the Asia Pacific regions.

Asia Pacific regions include both IT-strong economies (e.g., Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea) and emerging economies for IT development (e.g., some countries in South East, Middle East, and Central Asia). Managerial and contextual issues related to information systems (IS) and technologies in these regions can be quite different from those of countries in other regions. We strongly feel that a professional journal is necessary to deal with these unique issues related to management of IS and IT in the Asia Pacific regions, and APJIS is meant to fill this gap.

APJIS is receptive to a wide variety of topics related to the design, management, use, valuation, and impacts of IT at different levels of analysis, giving priority to research outcomes dealing with the unique features of managing IS and IT in the Asia Pacific regions, but not limited to. APJIS is also widely open to various research approaches.
