Temple MIS faculty continued to be the among most prolific in the world in 2021 according to the Association for Information Systems’ List of High-Quality Journals, specifically MIS Quarterly, Information Systems Research, the Journal of Management Information Systems, and the Journal of the Association for Information Systems.
Temple faculty published in those four journals 19 times in 2021. Two Temple MIS faculty were featured in the list: Jason Thatcher, Milton F. Stauffer Professor, was #2 in the world and Min-Seok Pang, Associate Professor and Milton F. Stauffer Research Fellow, was #14 in the world.
“I’m excited that once again Temple University tops this list,” says MIS chair David Schuff. “It reflects the excellent research culture we’ve built within the MIS Department and throughout the Fox School of Business,” he says.
Temple was also the most frequently published institution in those journals during the last three years, with 47 publications from 2019 to 2021. During that time, in addition to Thatcher and Pang, professor Detmar Straub also appears on the list.
Pang, who studies strategic IT management in the public sector, remarked on the strength and intellectual diversity of the group, “It’s great to be part of a team that has accomplished so much. We have varied research interests and that creates many opportunities for collaboration.”
“I appreciate being in an environment that values and supports research. We celebrate each other’s achievements.,” says Thatcher, who studies workforce issues related to technology use in organizations and is the MIS Ph.D. concentration adviser, “We have a strong set of faculty and top-flight doctoral students.”
