The influence and impact of a variety of journals publishing information system (IS) research is determined using journal citation reports. The data suggests there is consistency in several of the top-rated journals, but wide variety in others. Some IS journal appear to have rankings that contradict their 'true' value to other researchers. For some of the best journals, the ranking is relatively consistent, which is comforting, but for some of the mid-ranked journals the picture is not very clear.
