In today's fast-paced business environment, even with an abundance of information, decision-making can be complex and slow. As floods of data emerge, effective information processing is sought as a panacea. With the ever-present spectre of uncertainty, sound decisions are key. As a consequence of the various conflicts/dilemmas, employment of efficient data management leading to better decision-making is the goal. Organisations must employ effective information management/decision-making processes at each critical stage of their functions. IJIDS addresses the issues involved in this.

More on this journal...

The mission of IJIDS is to provide an international forum for practitioners and researchers both for-profit and nonprofit organisations, along with information technology professionals, software developers, and vendors, to exchange, share and present useful and innovative ideas and work. IJIDS emphasises the presentation and distribution of ground-breaking and original theories and concepts which can shape future directions of research. These, when applied, can enable policy makers, government officials, business managers, and different decision makers to spread over various advanced techniques and new applications of information technology. IJIDS also supports discussions on how information systems can promote decision making, and also in turn, how the advances brought about by these decision making practices can affect the growth in, and future application of, information technology. All models (normative, descriptive, cognitive, and prescriptive) are encouraged.


IJIDS presents a forum to help managers, planners, policy makers, researchers, educators, and professionals to exchange their innovative ideas and thought-provoking opinions. It also creates a communication channel between practitioners and academics to discuss problems, challenges and opportunities in all aspects of information and decision making.


IJIDS publishes original papers, reviews, surveys, debates, reports, position notes, practice comments, case studies, book reviews, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in decision making will occasionally be published.
