    Workshop Aims
    The aim of this tutorial-style workshop is to assist researchers who are
    seeking to publish work in the Journal of the Association for Information
    Systems (JAIS) or journals of a similar nature. The workshop will discuss
    how to present work in terms of style and structure and also how to better
    demonstrate a contribution to knowledge and theory.

    Workshop Agenda
    The workshop will begin with an overview of JAIS, the categories of papers
    that are published and the editorial process. There will then be sessions
    concerning writing strategies and structuring and positioning of papers, so
    as to improve the chance of publication of submitted work.
    In the workshop we will focus on three genres of research articles: (i)
    theoretical model development with quantitative approaches; (ii) theory
    development with qualitative approaches; and (iii) a design science
    Each session will be interactive and there will be opportunity for
    participants to discuss ideas and problems. Participants are encouraged to
    bring along an outline of current work that they are prepared to discuss.

    Workshop Organizers
    The workshop will be facilitated by members of the Senior Editors Board of
    JAIS: Professors Shirley Gregor ([email protected]), Dubravka
    Cecez-Kecmanovic ([email protected]), and Ping Zhang ([email protected]).
