Abstract


This paper reports on the productivity of Pacific Asia scholars and academic institutions in the
period 2003 to 2007 in two information systems journals: Decision Support Systems (DSS) and
Information and Management (I&M). We used the Web of Science database to track the
publication records of the scholars and institutions. The results indicated that the Pacific Asia
researchers provided notable contributions to these two journals and seem to treat them as their
preferred publication outlets. Furthermore, the leading institutions in the Pacific Asia region
show similar productivity to the leading institutions in North and South America in these two
journals. The findings from this research shed more light on the productivity of Pacific Asia
scholars.
