A major mission of the information systems discipline is to produce academic research that is highly relevant and useful to IS practice. ICIS instituted this practice-oriented research track to contribute to this mission. The track welcomes submission of practice-oriented information systems research that is highly relevant and useful to practicing IS executives. The track is open to any topic that is relevant and useful to IS executives.

Criteria for acceptance of submissions will be very similar to those adopted by MISQ Executive. Authors are encouraged to submit in-depth research that provides rich stories, unique insights, and useful conceptual frameworks for information systems practice. The target audience is primarily practitioners, but it also includes researchers and students so that we can stimulate ongoing discussions at the intersection of research and practice and contribute to the development of future industry leaders. Submitted papers will be specifically screened for relevance and usefulness to IS practice. They will also be expected to demonstrate a rigor that makes the findings credible to a discriminating reader.

The Editor-in-Chief of MISQ Executive offers accepted papers of this track an opportunity to go through a fast-track review, development, and publication process at MISQ Executive.

In addition to paper presentations, this track will invite IT leaders from various industries to: (1) give keynote speeches; (2) attend mixed practitioner/researcher panels; and (3) serve as discussants in research presentations to provide feedback and help define further questions for practice-oriented IS research.

Overall, this track aims to:

  • Extend the reach of ICIS to IS executives
  • Showcase highest quality practice-oriented IS research
  • Promote practice-oriented IS research as a key source of insight and guidance for IS practice
  • Provide researchers a platform to present and discuss their practice-oriented IS research findings with IS executives and academics and expose the community to current challenges in IS practice
  • Help identify the most challenging managerial issues in IS practice and frame them as new questions that could guide future practice-oriented IS research
