The research output of the Fox School of Business’ Management Information Systems (MIS) Department has been ranked No. 1 in the world (again!) in the 2013 update of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) publications database. The department was ranked first for the five year period 2009-13 for publications in the top four MIS journals, maintaining the leading position it has held for four years.
The analysis also ranked Paul A. Pavlou, the Milton T. Stauffer Professor of Information Technology and Strategy, as one of the Top 3 MIS researchers in the world for the same five-year period in the top two MIS journals. Fox Associate Professor of Marketing and MIS Angelika Dimoka, and MIS Professor Youngjin Yoo, who directs Temple’s Center for Design+Innovation and is principal investigator on the university’s Urban Apps and Maps Studios, also ranked in the Top 15.
“We congratulate these faculty – and our MIS Department as a whole – as our school and university join in celebrating this remarkable accomplishment,” Dean M. Moshe Porat said.
The rankings were generated in March 2014 using a database created by the AIS, the premier global organization for information systems. Full rankings are at http://www.vvenkatesh.com/isranking/index.asp.
“MIS at Fox is a special place; we have the best researchers in the world, the most innovative curriculum and awesome students who continue to excel in a very supportive environment,” founding Chair Munir Mandviwalla said.
In addition to the Fox MIS Department’s research rankings, U.S. News & World Report ranks the Fox School’s undergraduate MIS program No. 14 in the nation, and the Fox MIS student chapter is the AIS 2013 Chapter of the Year.
