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.

To submit an article for consideration, please use our online review system.

The track is chaired by Hind Benbya, Dorothy Leidner, and Shan Pan, and many of our Senior Editors are Associate Editors. Submitting to the track is a great way to get early feedback as you prepare your work for MISQ Executive
