McIntire Information Technology Professor Saonee Sarker has been named 2016 Outstanding Associate Editor by MIS Quarterly. In addition to this prestigious honor, she has been appointed to serve as one of the journal’s senior editors, effective Jan. 1, 2017.
MIS Quarterly is the IT discipline’s top-tier journal. Its editorial objective is the enhancement and communication of knowledge concerning the development of IT-based services; the management of IT resources; and the use, impact, and economics of IT with managerial, organizational, and societal implications.
“I’m extremely honored and humbled by the recognition from my peers in the discipline,” says Sarker of the achievement, noting that serving as senior editor will give her the opportunity to shape the nature of scholarship published in the peer-reviewed journal.
Sarker has served as an associate editor for MIS Quarterly since 2014. She is also a senior editor of AIS Transactions on Replication Research and an associate editor of Decision Sciences, for which she was named Outstanding Associate Editor last year. Her research has appeared in such top journals as MIS Quarterly; Information Systems Research; Journal of Management Information Systems; Journal of the Association of Information Systems; Decision Sciences; European Journal of Information Systems; Decision Support Systems; Journal of Information Technology; and Information Systems Journal, among others. In addition, she has earned several conference best paper awards and grants, including one by the National Science Foundation awarded to study work–life balance in globally distributed software development teams.
