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. Furthermore, global operations asked 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 to achieve 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 intending to achieve 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. Nowadays, digital transformation asked for new business models and a change in the design and development of EIS with increased relevance of mobility, virtualization, and the use of analytics for creating and capturing value from big data. Also, open innovation and crowdsourcing have questioned the way companies engage with both their outer and inner context and, together with the further adoption of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI), are asking for a new breed of EIS to support their enactment. In summary, 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, and this journal aims to be the venue for researchers interested in their investigation, understanding, and development.

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.


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) and their implications for supply chain management, organizational competitiveness, as well as their role in the digital transformation of the companies. Design, development, and implementation issues of EIS will be discussed. These include organizational, people, and technological issues of EIS. The secondary objective of this journal is to expand the knowledge on EIS 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.


The International Journal of Enterprise Information Systems (IJEIS) provides comprehensive coverage and understanding of the organizational and technological issues of EIS, with an attention to phenomena related to the digitalization as, for example, the workplace transformation. Design, development, justification, and implementation of EIS will be discussed focusing on traditional topics as Enterprise resource planning (ERP) and E-Commerce but also on the role of EIS for business model innovation, and their change due to digital transformation and the use of technologies as blockchain or artificial intelligence as well as robotics.

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 as well as sociotechnical perspectives.

Prospective authors should note that only original and previously unpublished article manuscripts will be considered. Interested authors must consult the Journal Guidelines for Manuscript Submission at PRIOR to submission. Any further questions may be answered at All article manuscript submissions will be forwarded to at least three members of the editorial review board of the journal for a double-blind peer review. The final decision regarding acceptance/revision/rejection will be based on the reviews received from the reviewers.

Starting January 1st, 2022, this journal will be converting from Hybrid Open Access to full Gold Open Access, meaning from January 1st, 2022 onward all of its published contents will be 100% open access and the copyright of the published work will stay with the author(s) ((Note: IGI Global open access journal article manuscript publishing offers authors the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) licensing arrangement. The copyright for the work remains solely with the author(s) of the article manuscript), and the publisher will provide the published contents free of charge globally (there will no longer be subscription fees or payment of any kind required for individuals and libraries to access and utilize the published contents).

Once the journal is converted to Gold Open Access in 2022 and will no longer have subscription revenue backing it, the journal will be heavily reliant on Open Access Article Processing Charges (APCs) payment provided by either the author(s) or his/her/their respective institution or another funding agency, AFTER the article manuscript submission has been through a full double-blind peer review and the Editor-in-Chief at his/her full discretion has decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process. The APC will offset the costs of all of the activities associated with the publication of the article manuscript, including the digital tools used to support the manuscript management and review process, the typesetting, formatting and layout, online hosting, the submission of the journal’s content to numerous abstracts, directories, and indexes, third party software (plagiarism checks), editorial support which includes manuscript tracking, communications, submission guideline checks, communications with authors and reviewers, as well as all promotional support and activities which includes metadata distribution, press releases, promotional communications, web content, ads, fliers, brochures, postcards, etc. for the journal and its published contents; and the fact that all published articles will be freely accessible and able to be posted and disseminated widely by the authors.

The Article Processing Charge (APC) for this journal is currently set at $2,050 USD and authors will not be asked to provide payment of the APC fee (directly to the publisher) until AFTER their manuscript has gone through the full double-blind peer review process and the Editor-in-Chief at his/her full discretion has decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process. Please note that there is absolutely NO correlation between the APC (Article Processing Charge) being paid by the author and the results of review process outcomes.
