  • Track Description

    Engaged scholarship embodies participative forms of research that obtain the advice and perspectives of key stakeholders (researchers, users, clients, sponsors, and practitioners) in understanding a complex social problem. Diverse forms of research can be conducted within engaged frames, and the track welcomes submissions from the entire range. Two particular examples of interest to this track are design science and action research. Design science seeks research which extends the boundaries of human and organizational capabilities by creating new and innovative artifacts. The building and application of these designed artifacts produces knowledge and understanding of a problem domain and its solution which is potentially transferable to other studies. Action research aims to create organizational change and simultaneously to study the processes being changed, again with the objective of producing knowledge and understanding that is potentially transferable to other studies. Typically it is an iterative research process that capitalizes on learning through both researcher and subject expertise, within the context of the subjects' social system. It is a clinical method that puts IS researchers in a helping-role with practitioners, and reveals how researcher knowledge can inform and be informed by practitioner settings.

    The scope of this track includes reports of significant research findings that arise from such engaged approaches, studies of the practical use of such approaches to problem solving and theoretical use to research, and conceptual works that significantly and convincingly expand our understanding of these approaches and their philosophical underpinnings.
