The rankings service is globally reputable indicator tracking publications in eight leading IS journals in the AIS Senior Scholars’ basket of journals, a defined basket of high-ranking journals in the field of business information systems and digitisation.

The latest results showed that the HKBU School of Business is placed 50th in the world in the “AIS basket of 8”, and 10th in Asia Pacific, a tie with Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), and National Chengchi University (NCU) of Taiwan, when considering the four flagship IS journals, namely Management Information Systems Quarterly (MISQ), Information Systems Research (ISR), Journal of the Association for Information Systems (JAIS), Journal of Management Information Systems (JMIS).
