ISEDJ - Information Systems Education Journal


Information Systems Education Journal

Submission and Acceptance Policies

The Information Systems Education Journal (ISEDJ) is a double-blind peer-reviewed academic journal sponsored by the Education Special Interest Group (EDSIG) and Information Systems and Computing Academic Professionals (ISCAP). Publishing frequency is six times per year. The first date of publication was 2003.

ISEDJ is published online ( in connection with the EDSIG Conference on Information Systems & Computing Education (EDSIGCON). The EDSIGCON Proceedings features all papers, panels, workshops, and presentations from the conference. The top papers from EDSIGCON are published in ISEDJ. See the ISCAP-EDSIG submission guidelines for details.

The journal acceptance review process involves a minimum of three double-blind peer reviews, where both (i) the reviewer is not aware of the identities of the authors and (ii) the authors are not aware of the identities of the reviewers. The initial reviews happen before EDSIGCON. At that point papers are divided into award papers (top 15%), top journal papers (top 25%), unsettled papers, and paper submitted after the deadline for journal consideration. The unsettled papers are subjected to a second round of blind peer review to establish whether they will be accepted to the journal or not. Those papers that are deemed of sufficient quality are accepted for publication in the ISEDJ journal.

Currently the acceptance rate for the journal is below 40%.
