Welcome to the Winter 2019 Newsletter!

Dear OCIS member, dear Guest!

We hope your fall semester is ending smoothly! We would like to share some important information on ongoing OCIS projects and upcoming Annual Meeting deadlines.


  • Paper submission: OCIS invites submissions of innovative papers and symposia on organizational communication and information systems topics, and relying upon a broad range of theoretical perspectives, research methods, and data.

    The deadline for submitting research papers, symposia, and Professional Development Workshop (PDW) proposals is Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 5 pm ET (NY Time). Submissions should be made through the Academy's Submission Center website. You can access the call for papers and symposia here (or contact Kathy Chudoba) and the call for PDW here (or contact Marco Marabelli).

We will ask you to review a maximum of three papers.
