The stratification among journals constituting the formal communication system for MIS research is described and analyzed on the basis of MIS experts' opinions, published MIS articles, and citation frequency. Implications of the research results are discussed for authors seeking suitable publication outlets, for academic administrators making promotion decisions, for editors wishing to establish coverage policy, and for librarians making journal acquisition decisions.
