This study reports on research that examined Australian university performance associated with scholarly articles published in a set of high quality information systems journals. One hundred twenty-eight articles were published over some eight years with the majority appearing in just three journals—“Decision Support Systems,” “European Journal of Information Systems” and the “Journal of Information Technology.” The study found that authors from 102 different institutions were contributors across the 128 articles—potentially reflecting the efforts of Australian-based academics to engage and collaborate with internationally based scholars. Although 27 different Australian universities had at least one article published in this set of journals, the Go8 universities collectively had an output that equated to over 50% of all normal article counts (NC). The University of Melbourne was found to have the greatest article output of the Australian-based institutions, whilst no university published articles in all of the nine journals. The research constitutes a timely contribution to the academic publishing landscape, noting that there has been a significant interest by Australian scholars in recent times to document various aspects of academic publishing.
