Meet the Editors

Monday, December 5th, 2016

The objective of this workshop (web), coordinated by Frantz Rowe at FNEGE, is to support young information systems faculty members from France and all over Europe in their effort to publish their research in the most prestigious outlets within the information systems discipline. Over a period of four days, the editors of leading information systems journals will work together with the participants in an interactive way to provide hands-on advice on the research publication process (more)


My workshop, more iconoclast than the serious seminars by other experts and senior editors of major journals (MISQ, ISR, EJIS …), is entitled “Research must be for publication but publication must also be for impact”
