Published Annually. Est. 1993.

The Journal of Global Information Management (JGIM) provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to share leading-edge knowledge in the global information resource management area. Playing a pivotal role in the discussion of the organizational applications and managerial implications of information resource management technologies, JGIM’s contributors include a growing list of 2,400+ industry-leading experts, making the scope and breadth of the research diverse as it provides solutions to concepts like reengineering, rightsizing, network organizations, and the virtual corporation.

As stated by John Naisbitt, in his book Global Paradox, "the bigger the world economy, the more powerful its smaller players." While the world is becoming more interconnected, international strategic alliances are increasing due to the reality that no single company and/or country can be a successful player in this new global game. As such, big international companies are deconstructing themselves and creating new structures to survive in the new world order. JGIM is highly indexed, with prestigious placements such as Web of Science® - Science Citation Index Expanded®, Web of Science® - Social Sciences Citation Index®, Scopus®, Compendex®, INSPEC®, and more, placing it well within that global communicative space.

The Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Global Information Management (JGIM) 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 JGIM.

Mission

The Journal of Global Information Management (JGIM) publishes original material concerned with all aspects of global information resources management. JGIM is the primary forum for researchers and practitioners to disseminate the evolving knowledge in the theory and practice related to information technology and management of information resources at the international level. The journal emphasizes the managerial and organizational facets of information technology resources management. Articles published in JGIM deal with a vast number of issues concerning usage, failure, success, policies, strategies, and applications of information technology in organizations in and across developed, emerging and developing nations.


Coverage

The Journal's coverage is increasingly international and cross functional. Topics are far ranging and can be specific to the sections within each of the three mentioned categories. Manuscripts describing the use of innovative methodologies in international research are sought. Articles that include a comparison of data gathered from multiple countries and cultures are especially encouraged. Results should attempt to draw conclusions of a cross-cultural nature. Authors of single country studies are requested to extend their findings, where possible, to include implications to global information management practice and research. Topics should be drawn from the following categories:

  • Global enterprise systems and e-commerce
  • Global IT and government
  • Global IT diffusion and infrastructure
  • Global IT in library and information management
  • Global manufacturing and R&D information systems
  • Global marketing and human resources information systems
  • Global qualitative IS research
  • Global telecommunications and data security
  • IT in Europe
  • IT in Latin and North Americas
  • IT in the Asia Pacific
  • IT in the Middle East and Africa


Submission

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 https://www.igi-global.com/publish/contributor-resources/journal-guidelines-for-submission/?titleid=1070 PRIOR to submission. Any further questions may be answered at https://www.igi-global.com/publish/contributor-resources/before-you-write/. 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, 2021, this journal will be converting from Hybrid Open Access to full Gold Open Access, meaning from January 1st, 2021 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 2021 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 $2,000 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.

Those coming from certain developing countries will be able to take advantage of discounts or waivers with careful consideration by IGI Global’s Executive Editorial Board. Also, authors of submitted manuscripts can take advantage of IGI Global’s Read and Publish Open Access Initiative, which allows authors who are affiliated with institutions that are currently subscribed to one or more IGI Global databases to benefit from APC funding (you can learn more about how this all works here). In the case of a multi-authored work, even if only one author is eligible for the discount or waiver, all authors of the work will benefit from the waiver or discount. Additionally, if an author chooses to utilize any of IGI Global’s Author Services on their manuscript, the amount paid for any of these author services will be deducted from the final Article Processing Charge (APC).
