|Subscription required |Not DEST Approved |On Scopus database |Not on ISI database |Refereed according to Ulrichs | ACPHIS Rank 'A' |[paper/ejournal] [instructions]
The Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems aims at publishing critical, yet constructive, studies of IT development and use. The journal acknowledges and encourages the highly interdisciplinary nature of such studies. Topics include, but are not restricted to: organizational politics of IT; micro-studies of actual use; diffusion and uptake of IT; use and development of e-commerce; open source development; transformations of leisure and work following, for instance, mobile technologies; strategic and structural transformations of business organizations and sectors; software development methods and strategies; and the life on the net. The Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems draws on the Scandinavian research tradition emphasizing engagement with the field, participation from users and multi-vocality of interests. For sure, this kind of scholarly work is not confined by geographical boundaries. Hence, the term "Scandinavian" in the title of this journal should be interpreted metaphorically rather than literally as an ambition to foster this tradition. Methodological and theoretical pluralism is welcomed by the journal. Nonetheless, qualitative research methods are perceived as particularly fitting for the overall aim of the Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems.

The current World Wide Web enables an easy, instant access to a vast amount of online information. However, the content in the Web is typically for human consumption, and is not tailored to be machine-processed. The Semantic Web, which is intended to establish a machine-understandable web, thereby offers a promising and potential solution to mining and analyzing web content. The Semantic Web is currently changing from an emergent trend to a technology used in complex real-world applications.

We are interested in scientific articles on all aspects of semantic web, including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Semantic Data Management and Optimization
  • Rule-based Languages like RIF and SWRL
  • Microformats
  • Ontology-based Approaches
  • Reasoning Approaches
  • Linked Data
  • Semantic Web stream processing
  • Performance and Evaluation of Semantic Web Technologies
  • Semantic Web Services
  • Semantic Web Applications in specific domains

Service Oriented Computing and Applications (SOCA) [Entry Reviewed: 2016-02-15]
|Subscription required |Not DEST Approved |On Scopus database |On ISI database |Not refereed according to Ulrichs |Not ranked by ACPHIS |[paper/ejournal] [instructions]
The aim of Service Oriented Computing & Applications is to publish original and high quality research results on the service-oriented computing (SOC) paradigm, models and technologies that have significant contributions to the advancement of service oriented systems and their applications. Service-oriented computing has emerged as a major research topic in the past few years. Although the concept has evolved from earlier component-based software frameworks, web service standards are based on the readily and openly available internet protocols, and thus are easier and cheaper for companies to adopt. The strong support from major computer and IT service companies further speeds up the acceptance and adoption of SOC. However, service developers and users face many significant challenges and opportunities that are introduced by the dynamism of software service environments and requirements. This requires new concepts, methods, models, and technologies along with flexible and adaptive infrastructure for services developments and management in order to facilitate the on-demand integration and formation of services across different platforms and organizations. The success of service-oriented systems relies on the adoption of the derived technologies to meet the demands from the evolving environment. The journal focuses on the issues and research results related to the development of service-oriented technology, including service infrastructures, theoretical foundations and their applications and experiences in service-oriented computing.

|Subscription required |Not DEST Approved |On Scopus database |On ISI database |Refereed according to Ulrichs |Not ranked by ACPHIS |[paper/ejournal] [instructions]
The International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT) provides a forum discussing all aspects of tools that aid in the development of computer systems. It is particularly intended to offer a tool-oriented link between academic research and industrial practice. Tool support for the development of reliable and correct computer systems is of growing importance: a wealth of design methodologies, algorithms, and associated tools have been developed in different areas of computer science. However, each area has its own culture and terminology, preventing researchers from taking advantage of the results obtained by colleagues in other fields: tool builders often are unaware of, and thus unable to use, work done by others. The situation is even more critical when considering the transfer of technology into industrial practice. STTT remedies this situation by (1) publishing accessible papers that introduce researchers and practitioners to state-of-the-art tools and techniques, (2) channelling comments, queries, and feedback about tools and papers in the Online Forum with highlights published electronically, and (3) enabling via the Electronic Tool Integration (ETI) platform even non-experts to experiment with the integrated tools. - As STTT addresses a heterogeneous audience, great editorial emphasis is placed on clear, jargon-free exposition.

|Articles available |Not DEST Approved |Not on Scopus database |Not on ISI database |Refereed according to Ulrichs |Not ranked by ACPHIS |[e-journal] [instructions]
The basic aims of this Journal are

  1. To support multidisciplinary information dissemination related to different disciplines in the major areas of Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics (SC&I).
  2. To foster interdisciplinary communication based on the integrative potential of these three major areas. Accordingly, the journal will include not just areas from SC&I, but also from the relationships among them, among their areas and sub-areas and between them and disciplines from other areas, especially in the form of applications of SC&I disciplines in other disciplines, and vice versa. Consequently, a strong emphasis is made on relationship areas and on what has been named as hyphened sciences, engineering and technologies, in order to refer to the inter-disciplines that are emerging as a consequence of multi- and inter-disciplinary problem-centered research.
  3. To support inter-organizational multi- and inter-disciplinarity among academy, industry and government.

Modern systems are becoming more and more complex and sophisticated in their demand for performance, reliability and increasing authonomy. Historically, highly analytic and numeric based methods have sufficed, frequently simplifying the problem to allow analytical tractability. Many manufactured and natural systems (biological, ecological and socio-economic) cannot be adequately represented quantitively alone; qualitations and heuristics, linguistics etc, knowledge is frequently required within a common information-processing framework. A wide range of new theories, methodologies and techniques is required to 'enable' such systems, and thus engineering and integration to deal with these demands. The primary aim of IJSS is to become world leader in the exciting and demanding field of intelligent systems engineering and its applications.

The journal is defined by a particular perspective:

  1. action, communication, representation, and interpretation mediated by
  2. information technology in
  3. work organizations

The emphasis may be on any of the three components, as long as the others are treated as important parts of the context. For example, technical papers are welcome as long as technology is viewed as media for action and communication. The journal aims at combined theoretical and empirical developments. Theoretical/conceptual papers should contain some practical or empirical illustrations. Papers with emphasis on empirical research must contain theoretical arguments.
