Disseminating Design Science Research

Part of the Integrated Series in Information Systems book series (ISIS, volume 22)


As you near the completion of a design science research project, your thoughts are now diverted to what to do next? Every researcher wants to publish their finding to the scientific community and in particular to their peer group. While academic publishing is certainly a preferred outcome of DSR, we would also like to mention that another possible (and lucrative) outcome of DSR is entrepreneurial activity for those who have the mindset. If you have built it, let them come.

As experienced researchers, and editors in the field, we share with the readers the challenges and issues of writing papers for leading conference and journals. In that context, we also briefly discuss getting funds from foundation to support your research. We also discuss the necessary first steps toward commercializing DSR by building a start-up company around the project artifact.
