The International Journal of Information System Modeling and Design (IJISMD) publishes original research and practical results on the advances in system analysis and design. The journal promotes the emerging discipline of informatics and its research results on the methods of requirements engineering, enterprise system modeling, service design, integration, evolution, and implementation. This journal examines the theoretical foundations of new generation design tools, which facilitate reasoning regarding emerging compositions of services and bridging the communication gap among business managers and system designers. The primary goal of system modeling and design is to align business models with computerized services to make both organizational and technical system parts more effective.

Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Information System Modeling and Design (IJISMD) is to provide an international forum for modeling experts and design professionals for exchanging innovative ideas. The journal enables presentation of original work on the development of models for blending software and enterprise engineering, managing complexity of design, visualization of integration, and evolution. It focuses on semantic integrity between business processes and business data, as well as on new methods for identification of semantic inconsistency, incompleteness, redundancy, and ambiguity of information system specifications. Targeting researchers, practitioners, and academicians, this journal promotes innovative findings in the emerging disciplines of informatics on project management, modeling, system design, integration, evolution, and maintenance.

Reviews and Testimonials

Working much out there for both public and private organizations, I have seen a huge lack of architectural thinking. Modeling and design of enterprise architectures should be a natural part of the IT business maturity process. As soon as new methodologies, technologies, or software tools emerge, organizations tend to abandon their best practices that have been developed in the past and then start all over again. It is time for business managers and information systems designers to be true professionals. I really welcome this initiative on establishing the new International Journal on Information System Modeling and Design. It will facilitate improvement of the IT organizations maturity. Models and methods for designing enterprise architectures is a key success factor to any organization today.
