The Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Organizational and End User Computing (JOEUC) 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 JOEUC.


The primary purpose of the Journal of Organizational and End User Computing (JOEUC) is to provide a forum to information technology educators, researchers, and practitioners to advance the practice and understanding of organizational and end user computing. Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts for possible publication in JOEUC. The journal publishes empirical and theoretical research concerned with all aspects of organizational and end user computing. The journal is especially interested in those research studies that show a significant contribution to the area by relating organizational and end user computing to organizational and end user performance and productivity, strategic and competitive advantage, and electronic commerce. It publishes full-length research manuscripts, insightful research and practice notes, and case studies from all areas of organizational and end user computing.


Topics should be drawn from, but not limited to, the following areas with major emphasis on how to increase organizational and end user productivity and performance, and how to achieve organizational strategic and competitive advantage:

  • OEUC controls for security and privacy
  • OEUC affects of organizational strategic and competitive advantage
  • OEUC hardware and software
  • OEUC in various management functions
  • OEUC management
  • OEUC privacy, security, and copyright issues
  • OEUC productivity and performance
  • OEUC relation to information resources management
  • OEUC risk factors
  • OEUC satisfaction
  • OEUC success factors
  • OEUC supports and training
  • OEUC usage
  • Using and managing emerging OEUC technologies, including electronic commerce


Prospective authors should note that only original and previously unpublished article manuscripts will be considered.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, 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).
