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.

Reviews and Testimonials

Today's is a world in which organizations can keep projects going non-stop by passing work among shift teams in different parts of the globe and in which MNEs can achieve worldwide consistency of processes and services by means of common information systems and knowledge repositories. JGIM challenges our field to understand phenomena like these and provides an invaluable resource for the scholars who are rising to that challenge.

– M. Lynne Markus - The John W. Poduska, Sr. Professor of Information and Process Management, Bentley University

JGIM is one of the best places to publish work related to culture and information systems.

– Michael D. Myers, Professor Of Information Systems, The University of Auckland, New Zealand

In this globalizing world, the success of many firms depends critically on effective information management across national boundaries. Journal of Global Information Management provides perhaps the most visible forum for addressing global and cultural issues on information management. Countries covered by the Journal are very diverse, and so are the theoretical frameworks and methods adopted. It is an excellent outlet and source for articles on information management from a global perspective.

– Kwok Leung, Fellow, Academy of International Business, Chair Professor of Management, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

JGIM is a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners because its collection of papers provides global and cross-cultural insights into key information management issues in the context of an increasingly complex and inter-connected world.

– Bernard C.Y. Tan, Associate Provost, National University of Singapore, Past President, Association for Information Systems

The world's economy is rapidly growing with trade between nations and regions. Organizations are moving from domestic to multinational and global. No other publication has for almost 20 years been studying the role of information systems in enabling global commerce and enabling multinational organizations as they move to worldwide activity. This publication also has presented numerous views of the interaction between information systems and culture for nations, organizations, and individuals.

– Fred Niederman, Saint Louis University, USA

Information management and information technology management are no question getting more and more global. Important issues for both research and practice include IT (off-shoring) outsourcing, global supply chain, and globally distributed work, to name a few. JGIM offers an important and critical platform for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their experiences and perspectives on these important issues. I highly recommend this journal to my students who are interested in knowing and understanding global information management.

– Patrick Chau, The University of Hong Kong, China

Most businesses today imply global business which needs the real time integration of geographically dispersed plants, customers, and supplies. ch integration, the global information system is a backbone. Since different countries have different levels of technological maturity and culture, the forum of exchanging experiences and benchmark cases about dynamics of global information systems is necessary. JGIM is the center of such exchange. To learn the current status and research methodologies about global information systems, JGIM is the best journal both for academicians and practitioners, and thus is the best outlet of publicizing such research articles.

– Jae-Kyu Lee, Professor, Dean of Energy, Environment, Water and Sustainability Initiative Dean of Incheon Campus Planning Dean of College of Business (Emeritus) KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology)

JGIM is the first international journal in the IS field focusing on providing a research platform for IS scholars around the world to study important IS issues from a global perspective. When the world's economy becomes increasingly globalized, so do businesses. As a result, IS research too needs to take a global perspective. JGIM has established itself as one of the top tier international journals on important global IS issues, including cross-cultural IS issues.

– Wayne Wei Huang, Professor of Management Information Systems, Ohio University

Information and information technology are fundamental enablers in the globalization of world economy, and especially are the important enablers for business innovation and transformation today. They give the emerging economies a unique touch unprecedented by the developed economies. JGIM provides a great channel for IS scholars from both economies to share their experience and perspectives, with rich insights from their unique economic, culture and historical background. It is a great journal for the community to share and enjoy a global view of IT.

– Lihua Huang, Professor, School of Management at Fudan University, China
