The Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems (SJIS) is the journal of the IRIS Association (Information Systems Research in Scandinavia), which is the Scandinavian chapter of the Association for Information Systems. The journal publishes research on development and use of information systems, and related organizational and societal issues. Research published in SJIS typically draws on the Scandinavian research traditions, emphasizing engagement with the field. As this line of research is not confined by geographical boundaries, the term "Scandinavian" in the title of the journal should be interpreted metaphorically rather than literally. Indeed, SJIS frequently publishes articles by researchers residing outside the Scandinavian countries. Theoretical and methodological pluralism is welcomed by the journal.

Current Issue: Volume 29, Issue 1 (2017)


Welcome to the first issue of volume 29 of the Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems. We take the opportunity to thank our authors, reviewers, and readers for your support for the journal.

This issue of the journal is a full Special Issue, on the topic of researcher retrospectives. The three Special Issue editors, Arto Lanamäki, Jaana Porra and Rudy Hirschheim, have done a great job in acquiring the career retrospectives, and have also written a thought-provoking editorial. We thank the five senior contributors and our excellent production manager, Jacob Nørbjerg.

We hope that you find this issue interesting. We look forward to receiving your best papers with a view to publishing them in the Scandinavian IS community’s own journal—the Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems.
