Proposal Submission Deadline: February 29, 2012
Full Chapter Submission Deadline: April 30, 2012
To be published by IGI (USA):
Information Systems and Software Development is a very dynamic, growing and important research area. It provides the finest and the fastest way for solving the typical problems. Designing, developing, implementing, and functioning a system involves a wide range of disciplines and many application-specific constraints. To make sense of and take full advantage of these systems, an excellent approach is needed? As software development plays a major role for successfully run of information systems and also a good segment of researchers are focusing on this area. Although this field is mature with many aspects but the main issue with this technology is related to its concrete link between software development and information systems, as it is highly important factor as of all functional requirements based on it. Researchers suggested so many different ways for the best use of information systems and software developments. But it still need to be consider more, for getting more accurate and precise results by applying new trends and techniques including merging the concepts of both.
Objective of the Book:
This book aims to provide a comprehensive reference for Information Systems and Software Development by covering all important topics including the information systems and software development life cycle, systems and software processes, functional and non-functional requirements, managing software development and software quality, metrics and technology. In addition Software Development Techniques for Constructive Information Systems Design will focus on research and experience that could contribute to the improvement of information systems and software development practices. The book's scope includes methods, techniques and technology to better engineer software and manage its development. It will extend the growing literature on the emerging technologies and innovations in the field of Software development techniques and Information System Design.
There is a need for recent edited book that focuses in merging the concept of information systems and software development perspectives. Some edited books focus in each perspective individually. However, merging both perspectives gives a clear view about the current and future developments in information system and software development.
This book would serve a broad audience including researchers, academicians, students, and working professionals in the field of information systems and software development.
Recommended Topics for Chapter Proposals:
Papers or chapters submitted for review should have a clear component of information systems analysis and design, software engineering or address ways to improve the engineering and management of information systems and software development.
Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Introduction and Overview of Information Systems and Software Development.
information systems and software development life cycle,
systems and software processes,
functional and non-functional requirements,
diagrams and representations,
managing software development,
software quality, metrics and technology,
software architecture, modeling, design and programming,
Software testing and verification and validation.
Structural (non functional) Testing
Feature- Driven Development
E- Business and E- Commerce

Data and Knowledge management
Researchers, practitioners and professionals are invited to submit on or before February 29, 2012, a chapter proposal, maximum three pages long, clearly explaining the topic and objectives of their proposed chapter. The proposal should be in Word or PDF format and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or on any one of book editors email address. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by March 15, 2012 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines if the proposal is accepted. Full chapters are to be submitted by April 30, 2012. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.
This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global, publisher of the “Information Science Reference” (formerly Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference,” “Business Science Reference,” and “Engineering Science Reference” imprints.
