Title of the talk: "How to work and develop impactful research? My research interests, ingredients, and an illustration".



In this talk, I aim to present my primary and secondary research interests with an illustration of a paper already published per area. This will enable scholars and students, potentially interested, to see opportunities for future joint research. After that, I will present some of the ingredients a high-quality research project should aim to have according to current expectations from top-tier journals in Information Systems and other Business Administration disciplines. I will conclude by presenting a work-in-progress paper in an advanced round of review in a top-tier journal.
