Introduction
Introduction

  • Evolution of MIS

    - Amalgamation of Disciplines

    - Consistent changes to the pillars

    - Origins of MIS and Scholars

  • Evolutionary approach.


Background
Background

  • Errors of Inclusion and Exclusion (Benbasat and Zmud 2003).

  • Deviation from the IT Artifact (Orlikowski and Iacano 2001).

  • Considerable diversity in topics (Vessey et al 2002).


Previous years work
Previous Years’ Work

  • Subdomain definitions

  • Most have highlighted key researchers

  • Other systematic examinations in recent years


Methodology
Methodology

  • H-Index Analysis

    • Publish or Perish and Google Scholar

    • 1970 - 2010

  • Top Paper Analysis

    • Same data as H-Index Analysis

  • Keyword and Topic Analysis

    • JMIS, MISQ and ISR

    • 1990 – 2010

    • Nine Pillars


H index analysis
H-Index Analysis

  • 297 Researchers

    • 125 MIS researchers, as defined by Hsinchun Chen

    • 172 Reference Discipline researchers as defined by past projects and our own research

  • H-Index data from Google Scholar via Publish or Perish

  • Data entered into SQL database

  • Custom web application (Researcher Researcher) to determine H-Index for five year time slices between 1970 and 2011

Paper citation analysis
Paper Citation Analysis

  • Same dataset used for h-index analysis

  • 74,253 unique papers

  • Extracted top 10 papers for each time slice


Keyword analysis
Keyword Analysis

  • 1,765 papers from MISQ, JMIS, and ISR from ‘90 – ‘11

  • 15,044 total Keywords

  • 5,699 unique keywords

  • 2,473 keywords after removing corrupt data, generic terms and combining similar terms (e.g., HCI and CHI)


Keyword analysis1
Keyword Analysis

  • Key Word Collection

    - Articles between 1990-2010.

  • Data Preparation

  • Classification (Round 1)

  • Pillar Adjustments

  • Classification (Round 2)

  • Cross Checking

  • Analysis
