A Decade of NeuroIS Research: Status Quo, Challenges, and Future Directions
R. Riedl, T. Fischer, P. Léger - A Decade of NeuroIS Research: Status Quo, Challenges, and Future Directions - Proceedings of the 38th International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS), Seoul, Südkorea, 2017
NeuroIS is a field in Information Systems (IS) that makes use of neuroscience and neurophysiological tools and knowledge to better understand the development, adoption, and impact of information and communication technologies. The fact that NeuroIS now exists for approximately ten years motivated us to comprehensively review the academic literature. Investigation of the field’s development provides insights into the status of NeuroIS, thereby contributing to identity development in the NeuroIS field. Based on a review of N = 164 papers published in 55 journals and 11 conference proceedings, we addressed the following four research questions: Who published NeuroIS research? What kind of NeuroIS research was published? Which major thematic orientation was chosen by NeuroIS researchers? How was the empirical NeuroIS research conducted? Based on a discussion of the findings and their implications for future research, we conclude that today NeuroIS can be considered as established research field in the IS discipline.
