CIM invites IS/IM academics to the 2nd Mid-career Academic Workshop

Professor Michael Myers, Visiting Professor at the SBE and Professor of Information Systems of the University of Auckland, New Zealand

Date: 28th October 2015

Location: TBC (Loughborough University campus)



In this workshop Michael will discuss the challenges of getting published in the top academic journals. Since most top journals in information systems (and many other fields) require a good contribution to theory, Michael will focus mostly on the use of theory in academic papers. He will provide examples of papers published in MIS Quarterly, focusing particularly on how they made a theoretical contribution. He will also discuss the nature of scientific research, theory and theorising.
