Special Issue:

There has been a surge of interest in design science research (DSR) in information systems (IS) in the last decade. DSR is now recognized as an important field of research in IS. However, in the current state, DSR contributions in the field of digital innovation are still scarce. This special issue invites DSR studies that show, how design-oriented research can contribute to the field of digital innovation. In particular, actual DSR studies, which serve to demonstrate generation of digital innovation artifacts and design knowledge are favoured. In contrast to other research paradigms, DSR exists in very different genres and is less standardized with regards to the overall research process and methodology. This special issue is open to different types of DSR, and the underlying research process and methodology in particular.

Papers must be submitted by March 1st 2018 at the latest via the journal’s online submission system. Further information can be found here:
