Abstract

In this paper, our express purpose is to provide MIS researchers with relevant research directions and questions in online outsourcing by drawing on existing knowledge in the MIS area. We conducted an exploratory field study and developed research questions based on these preliminary observations. Here, we describe various frameworks in which to view the research so as to better understand this new development in Internet commerce, and to help us differentiate between media hype and truly innovative business models.
