Acta Informatica Pragensia (ISSN 1805-4951) is a peer-reviewed journal that uses the Open Access model of sharing scientific knowledge. The aim of the journal is to actively support research and professional activities by offering a publication platform that is available worldwide and is free of charge. The journal covers a broad range of topics dealing with the social and business aspects of informatics. It covers mainly the theory and application of enterprise information systems, as well as interactions between information and communications technologies (ICT) and people.
In the business domain, we especially seek the empirical and design type of research with practical applications, such as research articles concerned with the current problems of IT managers and IT professionals working in various types of organizations. In the social domain, we particularly welcome submissions that emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of ICT when considering its application and impact on the society.
The journal’s ambition is to stimulate the dialogue concerning the role of ICT in the region of Central and Eastern Europe. This geographical area is affected by two main factors: the recent history of the Eastern Bloc, and the pro‑Western development in the past few decades. This situation is also reflected in the paradigms of informatics research in the region, e.g. in the strong tradition of informatics research based in cybernetics and other system‑oriented disciplines, but also in the effort to create a close connection between research and practice. In contrast with that, there is a growing awareness in the region of the “Western tradition” of informatics research. This means mainly the social research focused on such ICT topics as the behavioural tradition of the study of information systems in organizations. Nevertheless, there are no geographical or subject field restrictions imposed on the authors, providing that their manuscript is of a high standard and thematically relevant, presenting the research results from either the Western or the Eastern perspective.
Acta Informatica Pragensia is published biannually by the University of Economics, Prague – a leading educational institution in 'Business and Economics' in the Central European region that holds several internationally-recognized accreditations (e.g. EQUIS, FIBAA, ACCA). The university is highly appraised both in the Czech Republic and abroad. University partners of the journal who are involved in its publishing are the University of Finance and Administration and the University of Pardubice (Faculty of Economics and Administration).
