School of Computing and Information Technology - Journal of Information Systems and Management (SCIT-JISM)

Aim & Scope

The critical infrastructure of world economies are becoming increasingly dependent upon the interconnected information systems and the management of same using technology, with computer and communication resources used in small to medium private and public enterprises, utility systems, health care infrastructures, financial centers and security companies to name a few. Determine constructive ways to protect and manage the dissemination of data within information systems within and outside the organization is challenging despite the most advanced technology and trained persons available.

SCIT-JISM is a peer reviewed international journal with a key objective to provide the academic and industrial community a medium for presenting original research and applications related to information in small and large database environments, the development of software systems that support such large databases, a provision of assurance and security of such databases and finally the issue of managing large projects that evaluate the risk, procurement and modeling are relevant concerns. SCIT-JISM invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work that communicates current research on information assurance and security regarding both the theoretical and methodological aspects, as well as various applications in solving real world information systems problems.
