iterant ambiguity of "IS". This reminds me of President Clinton's remark
"it all depends upon what "is" is!"

an objective method based on a Citation Analysis was employed to re-examine
the quality of four established European IS journals as compared to I I
other well-recognized IS journals. Extensive citation data were collected to
derive eight indices as the measures of journal quality. Our research
results indicate that the quality of the four leading European IS journals
is quite comparable to that of other well-known IS journals reported in
