Research in Information Systems

The Information Systems group conducts research in the areas of information systems and information science.

Design Science Research is the main research approach in which information systems for business problems are designed, research prototypes developed and evaluated. In this regard the main focus in on decision support using data-driven technologies. Furthermore, the impact of information systems and on society is investigated using empirical methods.

Furthermore, the impact of information systems on society is investigated using quantitative as well as qualitative empirical methods.

The research focus of the group also includes evaluation (e.g., in the university sector, such as research evaluation) as well as selected areas of information law (in particular, data protection and copyright law, including the problem of plagiarism).

Another research area deals with informetric and scientometric (measurement and quantification of information and the sciences, respectively) as well as social media analyses.

Another focus is the analysis of information technology potentials for the change of existing and the development of new business models.

Likewise, the potentials of digital media for changes in informal learning in different, even in this respect still little researched cultural areas are investigated. A special focus is on innovative forms of e-learning.

The staff of the group is integrated into an international network of research partners and regularly participates in EU projects. In addition, there are close ties to application-oriented research centers, i.e. COMET centers in Graz. Additionally, the group regularly cooperates with partners from industry.
