Acceptance Policy Update: In 2011, the AIS Council approved the assessment of a $75 publishing fee for articles accepted for publication in any official AIS journal with no AIS member authors (Bylaw 11.7). The publishing fee will be implemented starting November 1, 2012 for JAIS and CAIS. To prevent any delay in the publishing of your article, please ensure that at least one author is a member of AIS. You can also join AIS at any time for this and many other benefits. For questions regarding this policy, please email for additional assistance.
