The Journal of Systems Integration is a peer-reviewed publication containing original survey application and research papers on all topics related to systems integration. The intent is to encompass a collection of papers that have heretofore been dispersed throughout a wide body of literature involving the interaction of disciplines technologies methods and machines necessary to integrate various constituent systems. The scope of this journal generally parallels the definition of the integration of computer systems. However it also deals with the general integration of processes and systems and the development of mechanisms and tools enabling solutions to multidisciplinary problems found in the computer services and manufacturing industries. This journal focuses on the following critical steps found in effective systems integration: Process characterization to understand current process capabilities behaviors and interfaces Re-engineering and simplification of processes from a system perspective Convergence on a common system architecture with a unified language for data management and Automation of the processes and systems. Since the succesful implementation of these steps for systems integration requires diverse knowledge bases and expertise in a variety of areas the journal also emphasizes additional topics such as: managing knowledge and information that are physically distributed in various databases computer communications impact on the system process dealing with heterogeneous computers and environments and coordinating diverse computer communiciation networks with information networks. The aim of the journal is to provide an international and interdisciplinary forum for the dissemination of new theoretical and applied research results application information and the developments concerning management of systems integration. For instance it disseminates research work which deals with the problems issues and solutions of integrated system design implementation and performance; and with integration technologies that apply to multidisciplinary areas such as computer-aided software engineering collaborative and distributed systems and computer integrated manufacturing systems.
