    ** MISQ Virtual Reviewer Development Workshop – Applications Due Sept 25 **


    MIS Quarterly (MISQ) will hold our annual virtual Reviewer Development Workshop in Nov-Dec 2021. The objective of the workshop is to coach participants who have reviewed, or are interested in reviewing, for MISQ on how to develop a virtuous review.


    The workshop will provide participants with: (i) feedback from MISQ Senior Editors and Associate Editors on a review that the participants develop for the workshop, as well as; (ii) the opportunity to discuss with editors and other participants on how to develop a virtuous review. 


    The workshop has been offered in a face-to-face format at ICIS in previous years. Due to COVID disruptions in many countries, we will offer the workshop in a virtual-only format this year.  We look forward to your applications!


    The workshop will be offered in two time slots to accommodate time differences. Calendar invitations with Zoom links will be sent to participants two weeks before the workshop.

    1. Saturday [November 27, 2021] 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM (Central European Time) / 3:00 - 7:00 PM (China Standard Time) (this session is likely to work for AIS Regions 2 & 3)
    2. Saturday [December 4, 2021] 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time) (this session is likely to work for AIS Region 1)


    Each of the workshop time slots has a limited capacity of 50 participants. The workshop will include

    1. Roundtable discussions among participants and MISQ editors to provide feedback on reviews submitted by participants.
    2. Roundtable discussions among participants and MISQ editors of the 'actual' review packets for the paper through rounds of the MISQ review process.
    3. Editors' panel discussion on characteristics of virtuous reviewing, structuring reviews, and reviewing revisions.
