Models are created and used in many different contexts, including business process management, enterprise engineering, enterprise architecture management, requirements engineering, information systems engineering, software engineering, ontology engineering, etc, across science and industry (including government, NGO's, etc). These different contexts result in a rich variety of more specific types of domain models, such as enterprise (architecture) models, business process models, information models, class diagrams, value models, reference models, ontologies, knowledge graphs, semantic web specifications, etc. Depending on the context, domain models can be created with the aim of being an (as truthful as possible) representation of the conceptual structure of the domain that is modelled; leading to conceptual models. In addition, to accommodate for specific uses and contexts, domain models may also incorporate “conceptual compromises” which, for instance, result in domain models that lend themselves better for animation, execution, gamification, or automated (logic-based) reasoning. The use of domain models may, sometimes, even go unnoticed since these models do not always take the form of traditional “boxes and lines” diagrams or some other dedicated notation.

EMISAJ is a scholarly peer-reviewed open access journal with a unique focus on novel and innovative conceptual modeling research and its applications (about the journal): ‘Conceptual Models, Enterprise Models and Information Systems Architectures should be researched from different perspectives, angles, and backgrounds, with a multitude of theoretical and practical lenses and mindsets. We welcome and encourage a broad understanding of conceptual modeling research and intend to further its many different facets, theoretical foundation and experiential body of knowledge’ (Editorial Statement).
