Nice IS Theory research review Site: The ‘Theories Used in IS Research’ Wiki

As someone who works in an interdisciplinary area, I find that I’m a bit of a hoarder of review articles, and now, judging by my favourites list, research review web sites. While writing an upcoming blog entry on certain aspects of organizational theory (to appear… soonish…), I came across <A href=”“>this very nice information science theory wiki</a>, with concise summaries and really quite amazing reference lists for a vast list of IS theories. What a great website. And, hey, since it’s a wiki, while perusing the research reviews, you could always contribute something to it yourself, as well.

About Jennifer Schellinck

Jen Schellinck is the Director of Modelling Methodology at Cogniva and an Adjunct Professor with the Carleton Institute of Cognitive Science. Her research focuses on the way that the information flow through complex cognitive systems influences their behaviour. From a methodology perspective, she prefers to use a combination of computer modelling and experimental research to generate and then test theories. She is also interested in the application of these results to information management and organizational design. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the fields of both information science and cognitive science, outside of her specific research interest she is concerned with developing strategies for research across scientific disciplines and questions of scientific methodology more generally. At CISRI she is involved with the ‘Information flow within organizations’ research streams.
