Professor Paul A. Pavlou has been ranked as the top MIS researcher in the world for 2011. The ranking generated through the Association for Information Systems (AIS) publication database is based on an analysis of publications in the top two journals in the field – MIS Quarterly and Information Systems Research.
Pavlou is an associate professor of MIS, a Stauffer Senior Research Fellow, and director of Fox’s PhD Program in Business Administration. His research, which focuses on electronic commerce, digital business strategy, research methods and NeuroIS, has been cited more than 7,000 times by Google Scholar. He is currently working on strategic pricing of IT services in global online marketplaces, social media, open innovation, and consumer surplus in online IT outsourcing markets.
In 2011, Fox’s MIS Department ranked third in the world for publications in MIS Quarterly and Information Systems Research and ranked first globally in 2010. U.S. News & World Report also ranks the department among the Top 20 MIS programs in the nation.
“This distinction for Paul and the MIS faculty once again demonstrates the Fox School’s commitment to excellence in thought leadership and research productivity,” Dean M. Moshe Porat said. “We congratulate our MIS Department and join in celebrating this achievement.”
