Paulo B. Goes, Editor-in-Chief, MIS Quarterly, talks about the operational aspects of the journal's review system. As a journal, MISQ acts as a three-sided platform, where authors contribute knowledge and readers consume the knowledge, the platform provides the review system, governed by rules and procedures. An article is read and cited and then cited again, and provides feedback into the creation of new knowledge and articles, etc. The MISQ platform provides review services through its review system consisting of reviewers, editors, and rules associated with the processes. The review component can also be seen as a collective intelligence platform, where reviewers and editors contribute knowledge in the form of reviews and opinions. The objective of the review system is to determine if a submission is to be accepted for publication or not. MISQ has a three-tier, hierarchical system of appointed editors and selected reviewers. The review system is a collective intelligence platform, in which the crowd (IS community) submits manuscripts, but the evaluation is performed by an hierarchy. A simple but informative view of the review process is that of a classification/diagnostics model.
