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 it will always be!

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.
