Abstract

Following the results of the bibliometric study presented in the Appendix, we define the structure of IS research in terms of five research areas and 51 research topics. The identified research areas closely mirror those in the Sidorova et al. (2008) study. The research areas include IT artifact and IS development, IT and organizations, IT and individuals, IT and markets, and IT for teamwork and collaboration. Our ability to replicate the results of the earlier study with an expanded basket of journals and an updated time frame suggests that these areas represent a robust intellectual core of the IS discipline.
