ISIS is an umbrella organization for all academics, students and practitioners as well as groups, networks and legal entities that are committed to the advancement of Information Studies.
Information Studies comprise all areas that use a scientific methodology to understand, explain and model information processes in natural, social and artificial systems for the (re-)design of those processes. In particular, the following disciplines pertain to Information Studies:
The overall purpose of ISIS is to turn Information Studies into a field in its own right.
For that purpose, ISIS seeks to establish co-operation that shapes the field. It seeks to create a community of scholars that reflect on the impact of their research and development on society, on how their studies relate to each other, and on the features that distinguish their concepts, theories and approaches in order to find out a possible common basis.
ISIS provides services that support members to contribute to the common goal:
