Benoit Aubert appointed Senior Editor of the Journal of Strategic Information Systems
February 2, 2022
Benoit Aubert will now hold the position of Senior Editor with the Journal of Strategic Information Systems (JSIS), a leading international publication in the field of Information Technologies (IT).
The JSIS is a highly prestigious publication that deals with IT research as it applies to organizations. It has a very low acceptance rate, mainly because of the high number of submissions it receives and its very stringent quality criteria.

He also has valued experience in editorial roles for other journals in his discipline and at major international conferences in the IT field.
As Senior Editor, he and 7 other academic colleagues will be responsible for choosing articles and organizing the review and selection process for those to be published in the Journal’s quarterly issues.
