In 1959, the journal ``elektronische datenverarbeitung'' (electronic data processing) was founded. Later it was renamed as ``Angewandte Informatik'' (applied computer science). Due to the diversification of computer science and the emergence of the discipline ``business and information systems engineering'' (BISE) the journal was focused on this discipline. Accordingly, the name was changed to WIRTSCHAFTSINFORMATIK (the German word for BISE). Fifty volumes of the journal reflect major developments and varying topics of the discipline. By installing a broad editorial board comprised of researchers and practitioners as well as by cooperation with the major scientific associations the journal became the central publication in the field. The paper gives a survey of organization, design, thematic focuses, and important subjects. Thus, by browsing through the contents of the journal the development of the scientific discipline Wirtschaftsinformatik is illustrated.
