The Australasian Conference in Information Systems (ACIS) has been a significant outlet for the research of Information Systems academics and practitioners for nearly two decades. This paper reports on the collection and archiving in electronic form of all the papers from the eighteen ACIS conferences held since the first conference in 1990. While there has been a very large increase over time in the number of research papers submitted to ACIS, reflecting the growth in IS research in Australasia, the percentage of papers accepted for presentation has declined. An analysis of the ACIS papers shows changes in subject matter reflecting changes in the IS discipline over time. Interesting patterns are revealed with regard to the body of work presented at ACIS by institutions across Australia and New Zealand as well as increasing contributions by researchers from outside Australasia.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
