Journal of Information Management (JIM) was established in 1992 by the Association for Information Management of the Republic of China (Taiwan). Initially, it was a semi-annual publication and upgraded to a quarterly journal in 2004 as a response to the large number of high quality papers submissions. It is the most desired publication outlet for local scholars due to its reputation. It has been included in the National Science Council’s Taiwan Social Science Citation Index (TSSCI) since 2000. Publication in the journal is counted as high quality research and is important for the authors’ promotion and grant application. JIM publishes both technical and managerial research with no particular preference. It covers many research areas in information systems, including: management information systems, decision support systems, strategic information systems, AI and expert systems, bio and medical information management, e-commerce and e-business, system development, project management, knowledge management, man-machine Interface design, information and organization, information and society, electronic organizations, internet and corporate operation, information technology application and management, telecommunications technology, software engineering, and all other information management related topics. The editorial board consists of the Editor-in-Chief and 16 renowned scholars to serve as senior editors. Reviewers of the journal come from a wide range of academic institutions and are selected based on the relevance of their areas of expertise to the papers to be reviewed. JIM receives about 200 submissions each year, of which about 10% are English manuscripts. All submissions are double-blind peer-reviewed. The average acceptance rate is about 23% in recent years. JIM maintains both hard-copy publication and online presence. In order to provide a snapshot of the papers published in the journal, abstracts of eight papers published in the most recent issue (Volume 16 number 1) in Jan 2009 are provided below.
