  • The book will be positioned well in the Information Systems/Information Technology market. The largest consumers of IS research are businesses and organization that employ information technology and systems to support many of their business/organizational functions including finance, marketing, order-taking, production, supply chain management, human resources, and other services
  • Current IS research is largely based on theoretical questions developed by IS researchers with little input from IS practitioners. The purpose of this book is to reverse this situation and increase the use of action research in conducting research activities in information technology and systems
  • This will be the first action research book specifically focused on IS research and it will be used by researchers and graduate students who seek to do IS research that is academically rigorous and relevant to those who seek to implement and use it

About this book

Information Systems Action Research is organized into three parts: (1) The first part focuses on the methodological issues that arise when action research methods are conducted. (2) The second part provides examples of action research in practice. (3) The third part will summarize the philosophical foundations of action research and its application as a methodology in Information Systems research and research programs.

The book will include chapters from Europe, Australasia, and the Americas representing different traditions and perspectives in action research. These chapters will come from prominent scholars in the areas, who are widely recognized as authors of seminal ideas in action research.
