Knowledge Utilization Among MIS Researchers
Knowledge utilization among MIS researchers is examined via an analysis of 9,911 references appearing in 532 MIS journal articles published in fifteen journals during the 1970-1979 period. Quantitative indicators of references per article, type of publication referenced, elapsed time between citing and cited publications, and cross disciplinary references are used to categorize knowledge utilization by researchers in the MIS discipline and to analyze changes in reference patterns over the ten year period and differences between academician and practitioner authored works.
