In this talk, I will share with the audience why we publish, how we publish, and where we publish our research work.  I will share some common reasons why papers are desk rejected, how authors can better position their articles, and address reviewers’ and editors’ comments.  Most of the contents are based on my observations as Editor in Chief of Industrial Management & Data Systems, Senior Editor of Decision Support Systems, and Associate Editor of Information & Management.  I will share some insights into what journals’ editors and reviewers consider when reviewing research papers.

This session will primarily address the following:

• Understand the publication process

• Self-reflections on why do we publish?

• What are some considerations when writing a good paper?

• Address some common mistakes authors make when writing and submitting their manuscripts.

• Addressing editors’ and reviewers’ comments.
