Description

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.

Reviews and Testimonials

"This journal provides an outlet for research that truly takes a systems-oriented perspective. The perspective supported by this journal is one that recognizes the complexity of today's information systems; systems which require multiple perspectives of issues to be accommodated and resolved."

– David Paradice, Florida State University, USA

…the journal's positioning is a very important one for the future development of systems thinking…

– Yasmin Merali, The University of Warwick, UK

This journal will fill a widely felt need to develop theory and practice in a critical aspect of organizational management.

– Russell L. Ackoff, University of Pennsylvania, USA

Information centricity and complexity are keys to innovative and economic products for our global economy. Systems engineering has become the engineering of the 21st century to meet these needs. Outlets such as the IJITSA are desperately needed to advance Systems Engineering and related professions and disseminate best practices.

– John Farr, Stevens Institute of Technology, USA

This new journal should provide a very much needed and welcome source of multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary thought having to do with the systems approach and associated lateral thinking related to contemporary information systems and information technology issues.

– Andrew P. Sage, George Mason University, USA

IJITSA addresses an important gap in IS research and practice. The IS discipline has done far too little to exploit the system nature of systems in organizations. Although called systems, information systems in organizations are often viewed as tools that users" use. IS success is often gauged as though it were about acceptance and usage of a tool. "System development" is often conceived as building computerized tools that satisfy information requirements of idealized business processes. IJITSA will make a significant contribution to the IS field by focusing more attention on systems and the systems approach."

– Steven Alter, University of San Francisco, USA

Editor(s)-in-Chief Biography

Manuel Mora is a full-time Professor in the Information Systems Department at the Autonomous University of Aguascalientes (UAA), Mexico. Dr. Mora holds a B.S. in Computer Systems Engineering (1984) and a M.Sc. in Computer Sciences (Artificial Intelligence area, 1989) from Monterrey Tech (ITESM), and an Eng.D. in Engineering (Systems Engineering area, 2003) from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). He has published over 90 research papers in international top conferences, research books, and refereed journals listed in JCRs such as IEEE-TSMC, European Journal of Operational Research, Int. Journal of Information Management, Engineering Management, Int. J. of Information TechnologyandDecision Making, Information Technology for Development, Int. J. in Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering, and Computer Standards & Interface. Dr. Mora is a senior member of ACM (since 2008), of IEEE SMC Society, of INCOSE, and of the Mexican National Research System at Level I, and serves in the ERB of several international journals indexed by Emergent Source Citation Index focused on decision-making support systems (DMSS) and IT services systems. Dr. Mora has co-edited also four international research books in the topics of DMSS, IT services and Research Methods for prestigious academic publishers like Springer and IGI.
