Special Issue: The Old, the Young and the Sea of IS: New Perspectives on the Development, Adoption and Application of Information Systems
In the past decade, we have observed the rapidly changing research trend in information systems (IS) in response to the fast-developing information technologies and the surrounding environment. Sizzling topics, such as social media and big data, have swept the field in recent years, and interests in new technologies, such as FinTech and IoT, are on the rise. It has been of no doubt exciting and meaningful to discuss their capacity to change our daily lives and influences on the businesses.
However, despite the rapid movement of IS research trends, more fundamental inquiries including how to develop, adopt and apply IS still seek for answers. The subject of IS may change every year, but the process of using it from the user perspective does not, because it is the combined reflections of the innate human desires and affections. Understanding ¡®how to¡¯ develop, adopt and apply various types of IS will provide more long-term implications that do not easily change while the subject of technology changes.
Therefore, this special issue aims to broadly discuss how various types of IS can be developed, adopted and applied. The possible topics include classical ones, such as trust and TAM, as well as recent ones, such as big data and social media. The submission of papers that discuss classical IS topics from a new perspective are encouraged. The title of the special issue, The Old, the Young and the Sea of IS, implies new perspectives (the Young) on classical topics (the Old) for in-depth understanding (the Sea). We welcome your submission.
