About Us

MagIC is a dynamic research center dedicated to advancing the field of Information Management through an interdisciplinary approach that combines Management and Data Science. Our mission is to investigate the dynamics of information and its interplay with human behaviour and organizational structures, to develop tools and methods to enhance informed decision-making and benefit individuals, organizations, and society.

Our team is comprised of 93 researchers, including 40 integrated members with a PhD, 34 doctoral students, and senior and junior collaborators from both Portugal and abroad. Over the past 5 years, MagIC has published 1070 contributions, with 83.7% in international scientific journals indexed in Scopus and WoS, and 45.8% with international collaborations. We are committed to open science, with 84,7% immediately accessible in our institutional repository.

MagIC's academic impact has been recognized internationally, with 10 out of 40 integrated researchers included in the World's Top 2% Scientists List from Stanford University, including 2 in the Highly Cited Researchers Index top 1% in the last 3 years, among other awards and distinctions.

Our strength lies in the robust synergy between our Management and Data Science Research Streams, which work together to address key organizational and societal challenges. Our research outputs contribute to enlightening existing phenomena and developing artefacts that support the theoretical modulation of reality.

MagIC also plays a key role in advanced training, with all of our integrated researchers combining teaching and research activities as university professors at NOVA IMS. In the 2018-2023 period, 49 PhD students graduated from the Doctoral Program in Information Management, all supervised by MagIC PhD integrated members, and 1596 MSc students have been qualified and inspired by MagIC to become the next generation of information management researchers.
