AIS Journals Joint Author Workshop in PACIS 2013 -- Open Call

Association for Information Systems (AIS) will be holding a PACIS workshop especially designed to assist authors who are planning to submit their work at some future time to AIS Journals such as MISQ, MISQE, JAIS, CAIS, EJIS, PAJAIS.

This is a joint workshop where selected editors and authors of all AIS journals are congregating and mingling in one place. The idea is to have an interactive discussion between 2-3 editors and 4-5 authors on the same table. Each year, we will bring in new authors in order to build up a community with distinctive tradition through the collegiality between editors and authors and the bond between mentors and pupils. Such distinctive tradition is vital for our discipline to become a reference discipline.

Extended abstracts or work-in-progress papers of at least 5 pages will be accepted for 20-minute oral presentation to a small group of AIS journal editors and other prospective authors in a round-table format. Each author should prepare 5 copies of the paper for the round-table participants. The round-table discussion following each presentation focuses on how to augment and revise the paper for journal submission. Up to 5 papers will be presented and discussed on each table; each paper will last for up to 40 minutes.

A group of AIS journal Editors and Senior Editors has volunteered to participate and there should be enough capacity to serve a fairly large group of authors. Acceptance to the workshop will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Participating editors include, but not limited to:

1. Christina Soh Wai Lin (TBD - Nanyang Technological University, Singapore), MISQE Senior Editor
2. Cynthia Beath (University of Texas at Austin, USA), JAIS Senior Editor, former MISQ Senior Editor, former MISQE Founding Editor and Senior Editor..
