In June 2023, Information Systems Journal will organize the third edition of the annual ISJ Trending Topics Workshop. This workshop is scheduled to occur from 8:30am-12:00pm (UTC+2) on Tuesday, June 13th, 2023, as an in-person pre-ECIS workshop in Kristiansand (Norway). The workshop will be conducted in a hybrid format allowing those authors and editors to join virtually that won’t be able to travel to Norway.
Thus, this paper development workshop promotes scholarship that focuses on high-impact research on new trending topics in the IS field. Workshop participants will discuss drafts of their corresponding research work with ISJ editorial board members, and other workshop participants. Please see a list of topics of interest, below.
Authors are not obliged to submit their work to ISJ, although the journal is a top-quality outlet that welcomes both conceptual and empirical papers. It is the ISJ objective that those papers receiving feedback during the workshop will be ready for submission and publication consideration in ISJ afterwards. In fact, we are confident that a decent number of workshop papers will be published in the journal, year by year.
Prior to the workshop, participants whose papers have been accepted for discussion in the workshop, will receive one to three papers to read and review for their roundtable. During the workshop, participants meet in small groups where participants receive feedback from ISJ editorial board members and provide feedback on other participants’ papers. The ISJ Senior and Associate Editors will facilitate the discussion such that each participant has equal time to receive comments from the group’s members.
Selection for the ISJ Trending Topics Workshop is competitive. This workshop primarily addresses trending topics and significant societal issues wrapped in a high-quality and high-impact research piece. To be considered, a paper must demonstrate a significant contribution to IS research, with or without data.
We do not consider papers that are currently accepted, under review, or under revision at other journals or conferences.
Topics of interest (include but are not limited to):
To submit a paper to the workshop, please use: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/isj. Please select SI-PDW (Paper Development Workshop) for the submission.
The review process is double-blind, so any author identifying information should only appear in the body of the submission system (and not in the submitted paper).
Individuals selected as participants will be notified on or before May 15th, 2023.
