Highlights

I have already published in three out of the eleven high-impact information systems journals as a first author: Journal of the Association for Information Systems, Decision Support Systems and Information & Management. (Of all authors who have ever published in the 11 high-impact journals, only 18% have published 3 or more times in these journals (Everard et. al, 2017).)

In 2017, my sole-authored article “Comprehension of Procedural Visual Business Process Models – A Literature Review” has been published in the journal Business & Information Systems Engineering (BISE).
