Information systems (IS) play a crucial role in decision making by providing appropriate information storage, analysis and distribution support for managers. Most information system projects fail due to weak requirement engineering processes. Problems such as inadequate requirement elicitation, poor requirement analysis and negotiation processes and lack of appropriate requirement management practices hinder the realisation of effective information systems.

Furthermore, diversity in IS application areas has emphasised the need for innovative requirement engineering (RE) methodologies tailored to the needs of application domains. Traditional requirement engineering literature has mainly focused on bespoke development and market-driven requirement engineering has gained little attention.

The objectives of this special issue are twofold: (i) to invite ideas, suggestions and recommendations and publish high quality contributions examining the inherent issues in effective requirement engineering processes and (ii) to invite case studies and disseminate best practices employed by organisations, project managers and practitioners.
We intend to present contributions that will be useful and of interest to academicians from a range of fields including information systems, software engineering and system engineering.

Subject Coverage
We invite contributions with a special focus on computing discipline. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

•Market-driven requirement engineering (MDRE) vs. requirement engineering in bespoke systems
•Requirement elicitation approaches for information system development
•Quality in requirement engineering processes
•Requirement engineering and software standards
•Requirement triage and advanced requirement prioritisation techniques
•Requirement analysis methodologies
•Requirement traceability
•Requirement management challenges
•Ethnography and requirement elicitation
•Requirement validation and verification mechanisms
•Requirement specification approaches in practice
•Relevant tools, frameworks and methodologies
•Case studies
