Content summary:

Turning research to publication is a key step for an academic to advance in his/her academic career.  This is especially the case for those who are early in their academic career.  Thus, knowing the publishing game becomes a “necessary condition” in this career development process.  This talk aims to provide the audience with an experience sharing session from a scholar who has been an editor or on editorial board of more than a dozen ISI indexed journals in the Information Systems discipline. He will share his publication experiences from the perspectives of an editor, a reviewer and an author respectively.
