They are the IT applications architecture spread, which is the adoption of a broad array of IT solutions, and IT applications architecture longevity, which is the length of experience with use of specific IT solutions. In particular, relationships between design routines and products within ecologies have not received sufficient attention. Based upon diagrammatic attention management, this study demonstrates that the type of diagram most commonly used to represent conceptual models is less effective than three other alternatives for validating the models' cardinalities. Journals If such an attention direction mechanism is not inherent in a diagram, it may need to be applied as an external tool, or the diagram may need to be disaggregated to facilitate use. Despite its potentially galvanizing effect, a dominant paradigm threatens the rich diversity that has characterized IS research since its inception. Variance theory research relies on logical arguments to explain and test the causality relationships among variables. | While past research has contributed to an understanding of how organizations or individuals adopt technologies, little is known about how such adoption occurs in groups. First, the paper emphasizes the importance of considering student autonomy in the debates around the relationship of ICT and education. Envisioning Digital Transformation – Advancing Theoretical Diversity This paper proposes a two-process view of trust and distrust building, i.e., that trust-building and distrust-building processes are distinct and separate. This paper examines the range of activities in which academics engage, including a detailed study of the authoring of textbooks. This is an important research area because potentially it affects all public companies, or companies considering going public, the investment banking industry, and all stock investors. Based on an analysis of these projects, FLOSS best practices were tailored to fit industrial development environments. IS Research Perspectives aims to introduce and provoke discussion about critical issues in the IS field, from an academic perspective. This study analyzes the mandatory FLOSS policies of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the initiatives associated with the adoption process. Furthermore, we advance a new nomological structure that positions CMC anxiety as a proximal mediating construct between the more general constructs of computer anxiety, communication apprehension, and CMC familiarity, and the dependent constructs of CMC attitudes and use. Design ecology - the task, organizational and political context surrounding design - is less well understood. IJISAM publishes high-quality articles that involve significant analytical modelling and have relevance to information systems and management science. Diagrams are frequently used to document various components of information systems, from the procedures established for user-system interaction, to the structure of the database at the system's core. Published six times a year, the Journal of Computer Information Systems (JCIS) is the forum for IACIS members and other information systems and business professionals to publish their research. This study aims to identify FLOSS practices that can be adapted for the corporate environment. The ISJ has particularly built its reputation by publishing … This study examines an under-researched aspect of facilitation—its contributions to self-sustained GSS use among group members. The second viewpoint, based on colonial systems, sees fresh perspectives, discipline newcomers, boundary spanners, and topical outliers as the likely source of the field¡¯s creativity, vitality, and long-term survival. This paper reflects upon the technology acceptance model (TAM) from the perspective of the post positivistic philosophy of science. In this paper, we propose a hybrid attribute selection approach that is both efficient and effective for text classification problems. Altogether, the study highlights the importance of design boundary objects in multi-stakeholder designs and stresses the need to formulate sociology-based design theories on how knowledge is produced and consumed in complex SAD tasks. We examine the extent to which these dimensions of assimilation within the business and clinical work processes impact hospital performance. Infomediaries provide powerful search capabilities to online shoppers to provide them with a list of potential retailers (efficiency benefits), and then provide information to aid in selecting from this list of retailers (effectiveness benefits). We discuss implications for theory and practice and provide suggestions for future research. We find that the Internet IPO firms are larger, have younger CEOs, choose more reputable investment banks and are more likely to be involved in a Web-based business, directly employing the Internet in their product or service, than the firms that choose the traditional method of going public. Such an understanding can better guide investment and implementation decisions. The Journal of Information Systems (JIS) is the academic journal of the Accounting Information Systems (AIS) Section of the American Accounting Association. Finally, IS should avoid the lure of a dominant paradigm. Issue 1 2013. The model was tested using data collected from an online questionnaire administered to 367 online shoppers. As such, we welcome innovative and provocative contributions taking a specific conceptual, theoretical, methodological, or thematic viewpoint of a particular area of interest to the field. Data provided are for informational purposes only. We argue that neglect by AACSB of IS/IT content has prompted this preemptive move on the part of ABET/CAC. The model also indicates that high process variability can improve the importance of IS flexibility management in general as it tends to limit the value of an IS over manual operations, whereas a high level of time-criticality of process requirements tends to increase the value of an IS over manual operations. Issue 2 2013. Although the majority of changes may be incremental, a firm's capacity for timely changes also implies its readiness to execute radical alterations when the need arises. CMC anxiety explains 34% of the variance in attitudes, while attitudes, coupled with familiarity, explain 14% of the variance in CMC use. This study develops a research model of how the technical, behavioral, and business capabilities of IT personnel are associated with IT infrastructure capabilities, and how the latter are associated with IT-dependent organizational agility, which is conceptualized as comprising IT-dependent system, information, and strategic agility. Based on an analysis of the model, we conclude that IS flexibility-to-change is cost efficiently deployed to support a business process characterized by a high level of structural and environmental uncertainty, whereas a low level of process uncertainty corresponds efficiently with IS flexibility-to-use. The results of our protocol analysis support the proposed two-process view. The validity of the findings is strengthened by demonstrating that the hypothesized research model fits the data better than two alternative theoretically-anchored models describing different relationships between the same constructs. We question a call by Benbasat and Zmud (2003) to narrow the focus of information systems research to a set of core properties. The development, adoption, and acceptance of eHealth systems that change and improve patient self-care have been promising, but the results have been mixed and the work mostly atheoretical. In this processtracing study, we collected and analyzed the concurrent verbal protocols from 49 participants using two RAs. The paper concludes with suggestions for improving the workability of efforts to improve the legitimacy of the IS field. This research examines the impacts of the assimilation and use of IT on the financial performance of hospitals. In particular, I review criteria for determining whether TAM is scientific or not in light of post-positivistic debates about the nature of science. (4) All research should include action to improve the situation being studied. Strategic Alignment In Mergers And Acquisitions: Theorizing IS Integration Decision making. This study proposes a theory of diagrammatic attention management to contribute to the exploration of diagram effectiveness.

In order to be effective, an information system (IS) needs to be flexible, that is, it must be able to accommodate a certain amount of variation regarding the requirements of the supported business process. PAJAIS is an AIS journal that focuses on enhancing the knowledge in information technology management with an emphasis on the research and development in the Asia Pacific Region. Well over three-quarters of US hospitals have implemented at least a basic electronic health record system.3 Similar deployments are also being seen in many other countries.4 As health care systems and delivery organizations overcome the initial very substantial implementation hurdles, focus is shifting to how best … The Journal Impact 2019-2020 of Journal of the Association for Information Systems is 6.200, which is just updated in 2020. We present a theoretical model that details the economics of two generic strategies of IS flexibility (i.e., flexibility-to-use regarding the IS features that are provided at the time of implementation, and flexibility-to-change regarding the IS features that constitute an option for later system upgrade), and that also includes the possibility of process performance outside of the IS (manual operations). Enid Mumford devoted her career to promoting the ethical use of computers. In this paper, we draw on existing literature about groups, technology characteristics, and valence to conceptualize a model of technology adoption by groups (referred to as the TAG model). Post-positivist Review of Technology Acceptance Model. In this paper, we respond to this opportunity by developing and assessing an eHealth system for newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes patients. A flexible identity can be changed more easily when circumstances require. We conclude that the discipline is best served by focusing on supporting diverse and novel research. We study these issues in three oil and gas mergers from pre-merger announcement to three to four years after merger announcement. We identify four essential features of design boundary objects: capability to promote shared representation, capability to transform design knowledge, capability to mobilize for action, and capability to legitimize design knowledge. We address two research issues not considered by previous studies. It is a quarterly journal that will publish high-quality papers in information systems. We examine a panel of 40 countries from 1985-2001, based on data from three distinct generations of IT: mainframes, personal computers, and the Internet. I first suggest that identity should be flexible and adaptable rather than inflexible and rigid. The Journal publishes rigorously developed and forward looking conceptual and empirical contributions. There are two general attribute selection approaches: the filter approach and the wrapper approach. Furthermore, individuals' perceptions of institutional privacy assurances -- namely, perceived effectiveness of privacy policies and perceived effectiveness of industry privacy self-regulation -- are posited to affect the riskcontrol assessment from information disclosure, thus, being an essential component of privacy concerns. About We first discuss three limitations of their argument and then offer two alternative viewpoints for analyzing the state of our profession. Issue 4 2012 Information and Communication Technologies in Agriculture, Food and Environment . Participants in this study using three alternative representations (disaggregate diagrammatic, aggregate sentential, and disaggregate sentential) outperformed users of the aggregate diagrammatic format for cardinality validation. The latest citescore of Journal of the Association for Information Systems is 6.51.CiteScore is a new standard that gives a more comprehensive, transparent and current view of a journal’s impact that will help you guide your journal more effectively in the future. The September-October issue is featured below. Education is in a state of rapid change. We implement the conjectured coordination mechanisms in a multi-agent simulator. Third, the paper identifies some systemic threats on educational processes arising from globalization and corporatization. Journal of Information Technology Theory and Application (JITTA) Communications of the Association for Information Systems (CAIS) AIS Transactions on Replication Research (TRR) AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction (THCI) Affiliated journals include: Business & Information Systems Engineering (BISE) Management Information Systems Quarterly (MISQ) MIS Quarterly Executive … It would be better, in my opinion, to protect past accomplishments while responding to the pragmatic demands of immediate audiences through research that addresses their concerns. Journal of Strategic Information Systems MIS Quarterly The quality and timeliness of reviews provided by each of the eight journals are rated by AIS members to enable potential authors to better understand the review process at each journal. We examine the practical problems in identifying a theoretical core, clarify the ontological connection between identity and legitimacy, acknowledge mistakes in our earlier formulation criticizing the necessity of theory in legitimation, and attempt a synthesis between our views and those of Weber. The journal invites articles concerned with the use of mathematical and economic modelling for information systems and related fields, such as e-business and sharing economies. IS accreditation in AACSB colleges via ABET, The Theoretical Core and Academic Legitimacy: A Response to Professor Weber, Plagiarism by Academics: More Complex Than It Seems, Electronic Journals in Business Schools: Legitimacy, Acceptance, and Use. Integrating insights from Adaptive Structuration Theory, experimental economics, and the Collaboration Engineering literature, we formalize interactions of group members in GSS transition as strategic interactions in a minimum-effort coordination game. The development of ABET/CAC accreditation standards for IS programs presents an excellent opportunity for IS programs in AACSB-accredited business schools to improve their perceived quality and credibility. JAIS is inclusive in scope and covers all aspects of Information Systems and Information Technology. Only late in the post-merger do the merged organizations revisit their systems to bring them into alignment with the business needs. It concludes that a more fine-grained analysis of plagiarism is needed, in order to distinguish copying that is harmful to the intellectual process, and that which is important to it. document.write("" + "If you discover any data inconsistencies, or have any questions with regard to content and/or your AIS membership, please contact us via email." In this paper we review the literature on observational learning, in which people use information gained by observing the behavior of others to inform their decisions, and note that little prior research has used an observational learning perspective to understand the adoption of information technology. Based on this finding, we discuss the main contributions of our study in terms of the strategic role of IT in enhancing firm performance. **Beginning in 2020, JAIS will now be publishing 6 issues a year. Home In addition, the effects of assimilation manifest differently across the business and clinical process domains. We apply the proposed approach to detect and prevent Internet abuse in the workplace, which is becoming a major problem in modern organizations. Issue 3 2013. It is an official journal of the Association for Information Systems and is published electronically. Study participants used the eHealth system for a 12-month period after diagnosis in an attempt to acquire an understanding about their diabetes, develop self-care activities (e.g., blood glucose testing), and improve their biomedical outcomes. Analysis of cross-sectional data collected from 293 IT managers generally corroborates the hypothesized relationships, showing that the technical and behavioral capabilities of IT personnel have a positive effect on infrastructure capabilities. Text classification, an important type of text mining problem, is characterized by a large attribute space and entails an efficient and effective attribute selection procedure. 4 talking about this. Finally, drawing upon the conceptual ideas of autonomy presented, I consider five specific approaches to examine the question of the reform of MIS education. This paper studies the country-level digital divide across successive generations of IT, providing detailed insights into the magnitude and changing nature of the divide. Journal of Systems and Information Technology available volumes and issues. Three successful FLOSS projects were selected as study targets (the Linux Kernel, the FreeBSD operating system, and the JBoss application server), as well as two projects from Ericsson, a large telecommunications company. Asia Pacific Journal of Information Systems (APJIS), a Scopus and ABDC indexed journal, is a flagship journal of the information systems (IS) field in the Asia Pacific region. The paper also suggests that practitioners evaluate an innovation concept's fit with the broader environment and relationship with other popular concepts, as a way to make sense of the innovation and anticipate its impact on IT practice.

The Journal of the Association for Information Systems is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers research in the areas of information systems and technology. The Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology (JASIST) is a leading international forum for peer-reviewed research in information science. They encompass a broad category of changes in the firm's processes, ranging from continual adjustments and improvements to radical one-time alterations. JARO is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes research findings from disciplines related to otolaryngology and communications sciences, including hearing and balance. We found that combining the filter and wrapper approaches not only boosts the accuracies of text classifiers but also brings down the computational costs significantly. While agreeing with the need for change, I disagree with parts of their portrayal of our new identity and the means for achieving it. ... Issue 2 2014 Knowledge-based Intelligent System . The results provide support for the majority of the hypothesized relationships. Most conceptual models are documented using entity-relationship diagrams that include a full transaction cycle or module on a single page, i.e., an aggregate diagrammatic format.
