A History of the IBM Systems Journal
January-March 1998 (vol. 20 no. 1)
pp. 29-35

The IBM Systems Journal was founded in 1962 to inform IBM employees about new developments in computer systems. It evolved into a bridge between the science of computing and the practical use of computers. Besides IBM employees, readers now include IBM customers and others whose work involves computers, as well as students and faculty at colleges and universities. Authors, once exclusively from IBM, now come from wherever work is advancing computers and their uses. This history describes how the IBM Systems Journal grew from a concept to its present form.
