MIS Quarterly Executive

MIS Quarterly Executive
An official sister publication of MIS Quarterly, MISQE invites authors to submit papers based on in-depth research that provide rich stories, unique insights, and useful conceptual frameworks for information systems practice. Our target audience includes both practitioners and researchers - so that MISQE can stimulate ongoing discussions at the intersection of research and practice - but our primary focus is research that is immediately relevant and useful for practice.

We look forward to seeing your best work submitted to MISQE. To submit an article for consideration, please use our online review system.
