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.


  • Call for papers for the MISQ Executive (MISQE) workshop and MISQE Special Issue on Crisis-Driven Digital Transformation. Information can be downloaded here. The workshop will be available both at ICIS 2021 and virtually in January 2022.

  • Submit your work to the HICSS 2021 Minitrack on Practice-Oriented IS Research. The track is chaired by Bill Kettinger, Gabe Piccoli, Ester Gonzalez, and Michael Milovich. Submitting to the track is a great way to get early feedback as you prepare your work for MISQ Executive
