    Dear Colleagues


    In a week's time, I will send out the details of our December MISQ issue.  I am just sending this exciting news in advance, because the Dec issue is quite large, and I don't want any of it being missed.




    We have TWO editorials in the Dec issue, both downloadable here: 


    • Monteiro, E., Constantinides, P., Scott, S., Shaikh, M., and Burton-Jones, A. (2022) "Editor's Comments: Qualitative Research Methods in Information Systems: A Call for Phenomenon-Focused Problematization, MIS Quarterly 46(4), pp. iii-xix.

    Direct link:


    • Xu, H., and Dinev, T. (2022) "Guest Editorial: Reflections on the 2021 Impact Award: Why Privacy Still Matters," MIS Quarterly 46(4), pp. xx-xxxii. 

    Direct link:


    These two editorials will surely become staple readings in doctoral programs around the world!




    Sincere congratulations to the following authors for their outstanding papers! 


    ** Paper of the Year for 2021

    Lebovitz, S., Levina, N., & Lifshitz-Assaf, H. (2021). Is AI ground truth really true? The dangers of training and evaluating AI tools based on experts' know-what. MIS Quarterly, 45(3), 1501-1526.


    ** MISQ Impact Award (for the best paper published a decade prior, i.e., 2011-2013)

    Leonardi, P. M. (2011). When flexible routines meet flexible technologies: Affordance, constraint, and the imbrication of human and material agencies. MIS Quarterly, 35(1), 147-167.


    And a very nice anecdote.  In the review process of Paul Leonardi's paper, one of the reviewers clearly predicted this award.  The reviewer wrote over 12 years ago:    

    • "I can imagine this paper becoming very influential in years to come because it offers a solution to an intellectual puzzle that for too long has resisted analysis."  Well said!
