This paper reports on a study that used DEST data from 14 Australian universities to determine the historical publishing performance of academics against a set of ACPHIS identified quality journals. The research identified that between 2000 and 2005— 140 articles were published in 39 of the 61 ACPHIS journals. A relatively low number of articles (N=12) were published in 7 of the 10 Level A journals whilst only 4 articles were published in 2 of the proposed premier profession group of journals. A total of 67 articles were published in 14 of the level B journals with the Australasian Journal of Information Systems (AJIS) publishing the greatest number of articles (N=25) in the group. The research identified that a relatively high number of overseas authors (39.1%) were affiliated with papers published in the Level A journals— suggesting that Australian IS academics may need to collaborate with overseas scholars in order to increase the likelihood of publishing in such journals.
