Abstract

Research in the field of global information management (GIM) is an area of information systems research that has grown tremendously in the 1990s. A large number of research studies have been published that have examined issues relating to the development, use and management of information systems in a global context. In an attempt to better understand the types of research that has been conducted, the research methodologies employed and the emerging research themes being addressed in the field, an in-depth study of the GIM literature was conducted. This paper reports on one aspect of this wider study – emerging GIM research themes. The purpose of this paper is to identify the themes distinct to GIM research that are emerging from the literature with the aim of highlighting potential areas of future research in the field.
