Working Paper Series

The Information Systems Working Paper Series, now discontinued, was for many years a publication of the ISRP, providing for the early dissemination of research, usually prior to its more formal publication elsewhere. The IS Reprint series included these more formal publications, many of which supersede the original working papers. Updated through 2015, our Index to IS Working Papers and Reprints can be downloaded by those interested.

Comments and feedback on 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 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.
