Information Systems (IS) is a field of study that integrates information and computing technologies with human ingenuity to manage an organization efficiently and effectively. The Information Systems & eBusiness Network on SSRN is an open access preprint server that provides a venue for authors to showcase their research papers in our digital library, speeding up the dissemination and providing the scholarly community access to groundbreaking working papers and early-stage research. SSRN provides the opportunity to share different outputs of research such as preliminary or exploratory investigations, book chapters, PhD dissertations, course and teaching materials, presentations, and posters among others. SSRN also helps Information Systems scholars discover the latest research in their own and other fields of interest, while providing a platform for the early sharing of their own work, making it available for subsequent work to be built upon more quickly.
This field, together with other scientific disciplines such as computer science and engineering, strives to design, develop, evaluate, and implement information systems for various organizational applications. IS researchers employ both quantitative and qualitative research methods in conducting research.
