This book provides a fresh perspective on issues related to IS research by providing chapters from world-renowned leaders in IS research along with chapters from relative newcomers who bring some interesting and often new perspectives to IS research.
The field of information systems research is undergoing subtle changes as it seeks to adopt, retool and implement many of the methodologies and techniques currently used. Researchers confronted with the demand for presenting new findings currently peruse and scrutinize dozens of IS academic and trade publications to learn how to properly use and read the results of the techniques used. Increased interest in the field demands a centralized collection of works on IS research.
The Handbook of Information Systems Research is for both researchers and instructors of IS research methodology. With the increased costs and complications associated with creating anthologies of previously published works, the authors created this new book to present research methodology and techniques currently under-represented in available publications.
