About the Journal

JIS Logo

ISSN: 2763-7719

The Journal on Interactive Systems (JIS) is a publication of the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC), maintained and supported by three special interest groups: Human-Computer Interaction, Virtual Reality, and Games.

JIS is open access and free of charge for both authors and readers, and operates in a continuous flow process: as soon as a paper is accepted and its camera-ready version is approved by the Editorial Committee, it receives a doi number and is published online. JIS adopts the best editorial practices and values open and free science!

The journal is inherently interdisciplinary, and its main goals include:

  • Disseminate original scientific works on interactive systems, their design, evaluation and application.
  • Introduce scientific projects under development by research groups focused on contributing to the state-of-the-art of the related themes
  • Openly disseminate high-quality research results for a broad audience

Authors are invited to submit original contributions – written in English – presenting experimental or theoretical results, case studies, surveys, as well as new ideas and applications with advances in a broad spectrum of technical areas.
