Track Description

A major mission of the information systems discipline is to produce knowledge that is both academically rigorous and applicable to IS managers. The ICIS practice-oriented research track will contribute to this mission. The track welcomes submissions of practice-oriented IS research on any topics that are highly relevant and useful to practicing IS executives in the digital economy.

Criteria for acceptance of submissions will be similar to those adopted by MISQ Executive, MIT Sloan Management Review and Harvard Business Review. Authors are encouraged to submit in-depth research that provides rich stories, unique insights, and useful conceptual frameworks for managing digital capabilities. The target audience for MISQE is primarily practitioners, but it includes researchers, with a goal of stimulating ongoing discussions at the intersection of research and practice. MISQE also seeks to contribute to the development of future industry leaders. Papers submitted to this track will be specifically evaluated for relevance and usefulness to digital leaders. Submissions are also expected to demonstrate a rigor that makes the findings credible to a discriminating reader.
