Submit a Paper to the International Journal of Information Technologies and Systems Approach (IJITSA)

Published Semi-Annually. Est. 2008.
The International Journal of Information Technologies and Systems Approach (IJITSA) is a refereed global journal where a systemic interdisciplinary and/or a multi-methodology perspective of information systems, software engineering, and systems engineering are encouraged. The articles accepted in IJITSA address relevant and contemporaneous or recurrent and unsolved classic problems, opportunities, challenges, and solutions found in IT systems. The journal pursues a better understanding and development of the three addressed disciplines from an interdisciplinary and/or multi-methodology perspective focused on the construct IT system. **In Memorial** Professor Dr. Miroljub Kljajic passed away in December 6, 2016. Professor Kljajic was a distinguished international researcher in the topics of System Dynamics and DMSS, and an excellent collaborator and co-founder of this journal. He organized several years the traditional International Symposium on Simulation Based Decision Support and Business Intelligence, at Baden-Baden, Germany. For his academic support, editorial advises and friendship we regret it deeply.

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


The primary objective of International Journal of Information Technologies and the Systems Approach (IJITSA) is to disseminate and discuss high quality research results on information systems and related upper and lower level Systems as well as interactions with software engineering, systems engineering, complex systems, and philosophy of systems sciences issues through rigorous theoretical, modeling/simulation, engineering, or behavioral studies in order to explore, describe, predict, explain, design, evaluate or intervene on organizational systems. Whereas information systems are the main objects of study, the systems approach – any variant – is the main research method and philosophical stance used.


Topics to be discussed in this journal include (but are not limited to) the following:
  • Agent-based simulation
  • Axiology of systems
  • Complex systems foundations
  • Complex systems frameworks, models and processes
  • Critical heuristics systems
  • Critical systems
  • Epistemology of systems
  • Information security systems
  • Mathematical analysis of systems
  • Multi-scale analysis
  • Ontology of sytems
  • Philosophy of systems sciences
  • Socio-technical systems
  • Soft systems methodology
  • System dynamics
  • System of systems concepts
  • Systemic action research
  • Systemic analysis of ISO, IEEE, ANSI, TIA standards
  • Systemic business process-oriented frameworks
  • Systemic case study
  • Systemic conceptual study
  • Systemic decision-making models
  • Systemic design of IT systems
  • Systemic design of service systems
  • Systemic design of SoS (System of Systems)
  • Systemic design of systems
  • Systemic evaluation of IT systems
  • Systemic evaluation of software development tools
  • Systemic experiments
  • Systemic green IT frameworks
  • Systemic implementation of IT systems
  • Systemic IT service management frameworks
  • Systemic IT service management standards (ITIL, ISO 20000, CobIT, CMMI-SVC, etc)
  • Systemic review of ISO, CMMI and IEEE systems engineering standards
  • Systemic review of software development agile methods
  • Systemic review of software development business process-oriented methods
  • Systemic review of software development service-oriented methods
  • Systemic risk management
  • Systemic service-oriented frameworks
  • Systemic software process frameworks (CMMI, ISO 12207, ISO 29110, IEEE 1471, etc)
  • Systemic surveys
  • Systemic TOEP feasibility studies
  • Systems analysis
  • Systems design
  • Systems engineering frameworks
  • Systems evaluation
  • Systems simulation
  • Total systems intervention
  • Viable system models
