The Intellectual Structure of Decision Support Systems Research (1991–2004)

Chapter
Part of the Annals of Information Systems book series (AOIS, volume 14)

Abstract

This chapter examines the intellectual structure and major theme of decision support systems (DSS) over the past 15 years (1991–2004). Multivariate analysis of an author cocitation matrix over the period of 1991 through 2004 extracted several groups of DSS research subspecialties. They represent eight major areas of DSS research: group support systems/electronic meeting systems, model management, foundations, evaluations, user-interfaces, implementation, multiple criteria decision support systems, and negotiation support systems. The DSS area has undergone profound structural changes over the past 15 years and made meaningful progress over the last three decades. It is in the process of solidifying its domain and demarcating its reference disciplines. We have highlighted several notable trends and developments in the DSS research areas over the investigation period (1991–2004).
