ATLANTA – Veda C. Storey, Tull Professor of Computer Information Systems, has received a 2021 INFORMS Information Systems Society (ISS) Distinguished Fellow Award for Outstanding Intellectual Contributions to the Information Systems (IS) Discipline. The award was presented to Storey at the society’s annual meeting in October.
The ISS Distinguished Fellow Award, given annually since 2009, recognizes the multidimensional nature of intellectual contributions, including research that has made a significant impact on theory, research, and practice of IS; leadership in the discipline as reflected in editorial appointments; and stewardship of the field through mentoring doctoral students and young researchers. Storey has deep accomplishments in all three areas.
A prolific researcher, Storey has published 105 journal papers and 123 conference proceedings. Her work has made a significant impact on theory and practice in areas including database design and ontologies, business intelligence and analytics, conceptual modeling, and design science research. A 2020 analysis by Stanford University’s Meta-Research Innovation Center placed Storey among the world’s most cited IS scholars.
Storey also has provided intellectual leadership in editorial appointments across a range of prominent journals, including associate editor positions with “Information Systems Research,” “MIS Quarterly” and “Management Science.” She also has served on review panels for the National Science Foundation and on program committees for more than 10 conferences, including as program co-chair for the International Conference on Information Systems, the International Conference on Conceptual Modeling, and the Workshop on Information Technologies and Systems.
Her stature as an intellectual mentor is distinguished, having co-authored research with many early-career scholars who subsequently have emerged as academic leaders in their own right. Storey also has chaired or co-chaired dissertations for students who have become significant contributors to the IS community.
“Veda is an exceptional information systems scholar. Her ISS Distinguished Fellow Award follows closely on other recent prestigious honors, including the Paul Gray Thought-Provoking Paper Award (2020), the Herbert A. Simon Award for the Best Design Science Research Paper (2020), the AIS Fellow Award (2018) and the Peter P. Chen Award (2018),” said Richard Phillips, dean of the Robinson College of Business. “We are proud to call Veda a Robinson colleague and look forward to seeing what she accomplishes next.”
Veda C. Storey joined Georgia State in 1996. She holds a doctorate from the University of British Columbia and an associate of the Royal Conservatory of Music from the University of Toronto.
