JIS published its first Volume in 2010. From 2010 to 2022, JIS published 230 papers covering different theoretical, technical, and methodological issues in Interactive Systems.

Since its first Volume, JIS has received a growing number of citations, presenting an increasing impact and visibility.

For March 2023: JIS estimated h5-index is 9.

The h5-index for 2023 is the h-index for articles published between 2018 and 2022. It is the largest number h such that h articles published in [2018-2022] have at least h citations each. 

Below is the list of papers whose citations contributed to the final h5-index value:

  1. Mobile Interaction for Augmentative and Alternative Communication: a Systematic Mapping, published in 2018, 19 citations.
  2. A cybersickness review: causes, strategies, and classification methods, published in 2021, 12 citations.
  3. Synesthesia: A Study on Immersive Features of Electronic Games, published in 2018, 12 citations.

  8. Procedural Dungeon Generation: A Survey, published in 2021, 9 citations.
  9. Universal Participatory Design: Achievements and Challenges, published in 2019, 9 citations.

JIS h5-index is being manually calculated as Google Scholars requires 100 or more papers published in the period to calculate the H5 index automatically.


In Brazil, scientific journals are classified according to the Qualis ranking system. In the classification methodology, journals have their level (from B4 to A1) defined according to their H5 indexes. To promote national science, journals published by the Brazilian Computing Society have received an increase of 2 levels in the classification. Therefore, with an H5 >= 9 in 2023, JIS h-index is equivalent to Qualis A4.
