Working Paper Series

The Information Systems Working Paper Series is a publication of the Information Systems Research Program. It provides for the early dissemination of research, usually prior to its more formal publication elsewhere. The IS Reprint series includes these more formal publications, many of which supersede the original working papers. You may download our Index to IS Working Papers and Reprints.*

Comments and feedback on our working papers are welcome and should be directed to the authors. Because working papers are typically revised by their authors within months of their issuance, we maintain only the most recent three years of the series for distribution. Most of these are downloadable in Adobe Acrobat format (if you don't have this, you can obtain it by clicking here). For copies of older papers, please contact the authors directly.
