ISF Editorial 2020

  • 107 Accesses

Information Systems Frontiers, a Springer journal, began publication in July 1999 with a lead article by Nobel Laureate Kenneth Arrow on Team Theory and Distributed Processing (Arrow 1999). The journal has traditionally followed a format of four to five special issues or special sections per year and one or two general issues and has recently completed 20 years of publications (Beydoun et al. 2019).

Over the years, ISF has published special issues on wide-ranging cutting edge topics (Dwivedi et al. 2009). We provide a chronological list of all the special issues produced so far in the Appendix. Our guest editors come from all over the world, and include industry researchers as well as leading academics from institutions such as German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI),Stanford University, University of Calgary, University of California at Berkeley; Texas A&M University; SUNY at Buffalo; University of Maryland; NIST, Hewlett-Packard Labs, CalTech, IIT Delhi, Carnegie Mellon University, Philips Research, Delft University of Technology, Wuhan University of Technology, University of Arizona, Swansea University, City University of Hong Kong, IBM Research, University of Technology, Sydney, IIM Calcutta, etc., etc.

Information systems (IS) have emerged as critical resources to be leveraged for organizational productivities in most business, social and economic enterprises. The success of an enterprise is a function of how its information resources are designed, operated and managed. The major advances in Information Technology (IT) have elevated information systems to a position of strategic importance in the modern competitive enterprise. Consequently, research and innovation in IS/IT has acquired new levels of significance in academia, industry and the consumer community.

There is a growing demand to provide a thorough understanding of IS/IT frontiers along with its foundations to meet industry and academic needs. While the industry seeks to develop high performance IS/IT solutions to its business problems, academia looks to extend the reach of IS technology into new application domains. Information Systems Frontiers (ISF) has aimed to satisfy these needs by providing rigorous, timely research occurring at the forefront of the IS/IT field in both academia and the industry. This has been amply exemplified by the vast set of special issues produced over two decades of its publication that address cutting edge and emerging areas of IS/IT with a distinct multidisciplinary focus on IS/IT research and application. Unlike the traditional publication philosophy of exclusively concentrating on either academic research or industrial innovation, ISF has focused on the integration of multi-disciplinary interfaces with IS and IT. Thus, ISF has acquired a global recognition as an international scholarly journal designed to bridge the contributing academic disciplines and link academia with industry. The central aim of ISF is to publish original, well-written, self-contained contributions that elucidate novel research and innovation in IS/IT which advance the field fundamentally and significantly. Published bi-monthly, ISF has significant accomplished the following goals and continues to develop its mission into new and higher levels of its focal areas and publishing philosophy:

  • Provided a vibrant forum for both academicians and industry specialists to explore the multiple frontiers of the IS/IT field

  • Brought innovative research on all aspects of IS/IT from analytical, behavioral and technological perspectives

  • Fostered creativity at the emerging disciplinary interfaces leading to new frontiers in IS/IT research

  • Enabled rapid dissemination of latest research and innovation, supported with a rigorous review processes

This issue of ISF marks an indeed important occasion in its journey: the successful culmination of 20 years of its publication and the start of a new road ahead in its mission. As a celebration of its accomplishments and a trendsetter for the next era in its journey, we present in this issue several invited articles from our distinguished advisory board members, in addition to regular papers. These articles include essays on the IS/IT productivity challenges by John Leslie King and Andrew J. Ehrenberg (2020); impact and intersection between the evolutionary quantum computing and the entangled web by Bernardo A. Huberman and Bob Lund (2020); a visionary essay on the emerging frontiers in smart environment and healthcare by Satyen Mukherjee (2020); cryptocurrencies and how they are changing the world of commerce by Xiaofan Li and Andrew B. Winston(2020); block chains in context by Andrew J. Ehrenberg and John Leslie King (2020) and an essay on reconciliation of privacy with preventive cybersecurity using the bright internet approach by Jae Kyu Lee, Y. Chang, H. Y. Kwon and B. Kim (2020). We hope you find these articles intellectually stimulating and which could prophetically open new and important areas of research for years to come.

Finally, we wish to thank all the authors, referees, guest editors, executive and coordinating editors and particularly the Advisory Editorial Board (past and present) for all their support over the years. In closing we also thank the editorial staff of Springer who have worked diligently to get the papers published in time.
