Submit a Paper to the International Journal of Enterprise Information Systems (IJEIS)

Published Quarterly. Est. 2005.

Global markets and competition have forced companies to operate in a physically distributed environment to take the advantage of benefits of strategic alliances between partnering firms. Earlier, information systems such as Material Requirements Planning (MRP), Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) have widely been used for functional integration within an organization. With global operations in place, there is a need for suitable Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and E-Commerce (EC) for the integration of extended enterprises along the supply chain with the objective of achieving flexibility and responsiveness. Companies all over the world spend billions of dollars in the design and implementation of EIS in particular ERP systems such as Oracle, Peoplesoft, SAP, JD Edwards and BAAN with the objective of achieving an integrated global supply chain. Inter-organizational information systems play a major role in improving communication and integration between partnering firms to achieve an integrated global supply chain. There is a growing demand for research and applications that will provide insights into issues, challenges, and solutions related to the successful applications and management aspects of EIS.

The Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Enterprise Information Systems (IJEIS) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, the coverage, and the guidelines for submission to IJEIS.

Mission

The primary objective of the International Journal of Enterprise Information Systems (IJEIS) is to provide comprehensive coverage and understanding of various enterprise information systems (EIS) such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and electronic commerce (EC) and their implications on supply chain management and organizational competitiveness. Design, development, and implementation issues of EIS including ERP and EC will be discussed. These include organizational, people, and technological issues of EIS. The secondary objective of this journal is to expand the knowledge on ERP and EC and in turn help researchers and practitioners to develop suitable strategies, tactics, and operational policies for EIS and for improving communication in organizations. This journal publishes original contributions in the areas of design and implementation of EIS. IJEIS intends to be a forum for exchanging new ideas and developments in the field of EIS. This journal also acts as a medium of communication among EIS researchers and practitioners.


Coverage

The International Journal of Enterprise Information Systems (IJEIS) provides comprehensive coverage and understanding of the organizational, people, and technological issues of EIS. Design, development, justification, and implementation of EIS including ERP and EC will be discussed. Developing an integrated supply chain with ERP systems and business process reengineering using EDI, Internet, WWW, Intranet, and Extranet are encouraged. Performance measures and metrics in the design and implementation of EIS will be covered. Different models and experiences with EIS outsourcing will be discussed. Conceptual frameworks, case studies, empirical analysis, analytical, and simulation models on EIS are also encouraged.

The International Journal of Enterprise Information Systems covers the following topics (but not limited to):

  • Case tools for system development
