IS research rankings web site update: March 2014

Launched in October 2009, the web site,, that allows searching for rankings by university and author based on any combination of the AIS Senior Scholars' basket of journals, i.e., EJIS, ISJ, ISR, JAIS, JIT, JMIS, JSIS and MISQ. Recent updates include new methods of ranking, addition of articles for 2013 (in all, 1990-2013) and improved printing. Please take ONE minute to fill out a survey that will provide information about how you (or your dept, school, univ) are using the site and help in securing ongoing resources for site maintenance.

In August 2009, Science Watch (a Thompson Reuters’ service) named the technology acceptance model one of the four Research Front Maps in business and economics, with Venkatesh et al. (2003, MISQ) being the most influential paper (a PDF file version is also available). An audio interview of Dr. Venkatesh is posted on Science Watch.

(MP3 file)

A number of Dr. Venkatesh's papers are among the most cited papers published in various journals: Venkatesh and Davis (1996) is ranked 1st of all papers published in Decision Sciences; Venkatesh (2000) is the 2nd most cited paper published in Information Systems Research; Venkatesh et al. (2003) is the 2nd most cited paper published in MIS Quarterly; and Venkatesh and Davis (2000) is the 5th most cited paper published in Management Science.

Named to Marquis’ Who’s Who in the World, America, and/or Science and Technology since 2007.

ISI Essential Science Indicators recognized “A Theoretical…” published in Management Science as the paper with the highest percent increase in total citations for the period of Aug-Oct 2003. My interview is available online:

Where have I been lately?

Fall 2013: A fairly light travel semester, with just short trips for conferences. At the end of the semester, I traveled to ICIS in Milan for a variety of activities and then on to India to continue work on the digital divide project.

Summer 2013: I traveled extensively again this summer, working on research projects and making presentations. In addition to the usual travels to Hong Kong and India, I visited Monash University in Malaysia and did a couple of presentations at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Spring 2013: I traveled to Hong Kong and India to work on various research projects. I also traveled to University of Utah.

Fall 2012: Besides presenting my work at Washington State University, I traveled extensively, including trips to India and Hong Kong. I also visited Orlando for ICIS and gave a keynote at the doctoral consortium. Escaped the winter in India and Florida.

Summer 2012 (April thro' August): Like the typical summer, I traveled extensively: Australia, Hong Kong, India and Taiwan. Universities visited include Australian National University, Deakin University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, National Chengchi University, and National Sun Yat-Sen University.
