EBIS is an open-access, peer-reviewed Journal Blog.

It is devoted to the providing an open resource and a provision to develop an evidence base for the design, development, adoption, implementation and use of information systems. It also acts as a forum to discuss topical and relevant issues concerning the role of evidence to inform more effective and ethical approaches for decision making in society. The primary purpose of the EBIS Journal Blog is to help develop a community of evidence-based practice to become established and grow in the information systems field.

We are a community of professionals, researchers and students with a common aim to provide and use evidence so that we can understand what works in the IS context: for whom, in what circumstances and in what respects.

Since evidence is needed to build this community, we invite practitioners, researchers and students to contribute their experiences, data and findings for publication: contributors will always retain their own copyright. Since evidence is needed to inform decision-making and understanding we provide the accepted contributions freely to all (under a creative-commons license).

Since a community cannot exist without communication, dialogue, discourse and discussion, we offer the opportunity to discuss articles in-situ within the Blog Journal.

Since we understand that people do not always have time to read the detail of specific articles, we have established a hybrid Journal Blog using WordPress in order to both publish selected peer reviewed evidence-based articles, and, also publish links to other relevant resources, whilst maintaining real-time active discussions, comments and posts.

So, why not join our community: as a reader, discussant and/or as an active contributor.
