Learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to give the PhD student a basic knowledge on the research methodologies that are generally applied in Information Systems research. After the course the student is able to assess, which methodologies are relevant for his/her research project.


The literature of the course introduces the general methodologies used in Information Systems research, including Case Study Research, Action Research, Design Science, and Survey. The course literature describes also the origin and characteristics of Information Systems Science (ISS) as a discipline – what makes IIS as a scientific discipline of its own. Furthermore, the literature includes some central articles for the discipline, which both exemplify the research that is done in ISS and shows the central advancements of the discipline during the last decades. As a whole, the literature forms the general knowledge of the discipline, which serves as a basis upon which to build doctoral research. The course is mandatory to all PhD students in the department of Information Systems Science.
