The purpose of this major reference collection is to represent sufficiently the information systems field in terms of its range, the quality of the evidence that has been produced, the methods adopted for research and the practices it has pointed to. Each volume has been compiled by leading international academics with advice from an exceptional editorial board. An introduction to the set was written by the series editors, acclaimed subject specialists Leslie Willcocks and Allen S Lee. Volume One: Information Systems Infrastructure Volume Two: Information Systems Development Volume Three: Design Science Theories and Research Practices Volume Four: Management of Information Systems Volume Five: Social and Organizational Information Systems Research Volume Six: Information Systems, Globalization and Developing Countries
