Paulo B. Goes, Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of MIS Quarterly, shares his views about his responsibilities and experience. He has expressed his gratitude to the members of the MISQ Policy Council who trusted him with the job and his colleagues in the field who have supported him. He offers his reflections on IS research in this editorial column, based on his 27 years of experience in the field, along with some thoughts about how he sees the future of the quarterly. Methodological approaches and reference research paradigms have broadened significantly from the time when IS research started. The dissertations of the 1970s have enabled IS research to follow an explanatory paradigm investigating the use and impact of IT and anchored in the disciplines of cognitive sciences, psychology, and organization sciences. He also states that diversified approaches and influences continue to play a key role in advancing IS research significantly.
