Abstract

This paper presents a simple concept map of the wide and diverse spectrum of information system (IS) research approaches, focusing on helping researchers in having an overview of what these approaches are, what they are grounded on and what designs are available for them. It considers research philosophy, methodology, method and design. It should help researchers, especially those getting started in IS research, in getting acquainted with the approaches and in justifying their choices coherently.
