    MIS Quarterly Virtual Author Development Workshop 


    MIS Quarterly will hold a virtual author development workshop on 18 and 25 June, 2022.  


    The workshop will provide authors with (1) feedback from MISQ Senior Editors and Associate Editors on potential submissions to MISQ and (2) the opportunity to discuss with editors and other authors how to develop papers for submission and resubmission to MISQ or elsewhere. 


    Due to the disruption to face-to-face conferences caused by the pandemic, the workshop will be held in a virtual format.  


    The workshop will be offered in two time slots to accommodate for time differences:


    1. Saturday [June 18, 2022], 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM (Central European Time) / 2:00 - 6:00 PM Beijing time (this timeframe is likely to work for AIS Regions 2 & 3)
    2. Saturday [June 25, 2022], 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time) (this timeframe is likely to work for AIS Region 1)


    Each of the workshop time slots has a limited capacity of 30 authors.  


    The workshop will include:

    1. Roundtable discussion led by editors on authors' submissions to the workshop.
    2. Editors' panel discussion on developing papers for initial submission to MISQ. 
    3. Editors' panel discussion on revising papers for MISQ.


    There is no registration fee.


    In our experience, the workshop not only gives helpful insights for improving authors' papers, but also gives helpful insights into the culture and policies of the journal. This can be particularly helpful for new authors.


    Please note that your papers will be judged for their potential for development from our editors. Please understand that spaces are limited and we may be unable to accept all papers. Thank you!
