International Information Systems in the Literature

Part of the Integrated Series in Information Systems book series (ISIS, volume 23)


The following sections first put the research literature on international information systems in the wider context of information systems research in general. The second part will discuss the development of international information systems research literature and set out the ‘state-of-the-art’ at the end of 1994, when this research project was started. An overview of the literature since then concludes this review.
