Conference Paper
Full-text available
Videoconferencing fatigue or ‘Zoom’ fatigue has emerged as a distinct and pressing phenomenon in light of rapid videoconferencing adoption during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of an ongoing broader literature review project, we find that extant literature primarily conceptualises videoconferencing fatigue as an error that needs to be det...

A growing amount of research is dedicated to digital markets for knowledge work services and contracting decisions as one of their most critical bottlenecks. Large-scale studies with average samples exceeding 144,000 observations have considered over 70 variables explaining contracting decisions. Our review aims to facilitate the convergence toward...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Information technologies (IT) give rise to new digital work practices that challenge institutionalized work arrangements. The literature has focused on how key actors legitimate digital work practices in traditional organizations. However, digital work entails sui generis new work forms that are emerging outside of traditional organizations. Unders...

PDF (accepted manuscript): ______ https://bit.ly/302z3Eu ________________________ Digital platforms for knowledge work (DPKW), such as Upwork, Freelancer, and Fiverr, connect clients with millions of workers for a range of knowledge work services, including app development, graphic design, and data analytics. Research on this emergent phenomenon ha...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Platforms such as Airbnb, Uber, and Kickstarter are driving digital disruption in a range of industries and are gaining attention in recent research. These platforms implement design mechanisms to mediate different types of exchange between individual consumers. The growing volume and heterogeneity of extant research make it challenging to dissocia...
Article
Review papers are essential for knowledge development in IS. While some are cited twice a day, others accumulate single digit citations over a decade. The magnitude of these differences prompts us to analyze what distinguishes those reviews that have proven to be integral to scientific progress from those that might be considered less impactful. Ou...
Article
Ideational impact refers to the uptake of a paper's ideas and concepts by subsequent research. It is defined in stark contrast to total citation impact, a measure predominantly used in research evaluation that assumes that all citations are equal. Understanding ideational impact is critical for evaluating research impact and understanding how scien...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Digital technologies are reconfiguring how work is organised and how digital workers are led. Management and leadership research have conventionally assumed that organisations require top-down, hierarchical management. However, leadership in digitally enabled forms of work is bound to differ in substantial ways from more traditional in-person setti...
Article
Full-text available
While design science research is contending its position in the information systems community, there is a lack of transparency regarding the recent and impactful information systems design science research (IS-DSR) papers. This arguably poses challenges to an informed discourse and limits our ability to communicate progress achieved by IS-DSR. Afte...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The goal of this study is to advance conceptual development and the growth of knowledge in the information systems (IS) field by placing the spotlight on a component of theory that is rarely discussed-the native IS concept. Beginning with the assertion that concepts are not the same as constructs, we build the argument that concepts, which are obse...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Digital technologies have redefined many jobs and are challenging how people define themselves at work. Scholars have long argued that people's work identities are mainly derived from the organizational environment in which they are embedded. But advances in digital technologies, in combination with a global restructuration of labor markets, have l...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The way we perform and organise work has undeniably changed and will continue to do so in the next decades. Work is becoming increasingly digital, independent, and performed outside of hierarchical organisations. These new forms of work, characterised by organisational independence, pose new challenges to management research and its theoretical con...

Digital platforms for knowledge work, such as Upwork, Freelancer.com and Amazon Mechanical Turk connect clients with millions of workers for a range of tasks, including software development, virtual assistance, and micro-tasks. Information systems research on this emergent phenomenon has gained traction in recent years regarding publication volume...
Article
Today, organizations must deal with a plethora of IT security threats and to ensure smooth and uninterrupted business operations, firms are challenged to predict the volume of IT security vulner-abilities and allocate resources for fixing them. This challenge requires decision makers to assess which system or software packages are prone to vulnerab...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Information technology (IT)-enabled, educational practices and open learning approaches are starting to transform traditional educational institutions. In particular, the use of digital platforms to engage both learners and educators in the process of knowledge co-creation and sharing is growing under the name of “crowdsourcing for education”. Alth...
Conference Paper
By providing knowledge contributions and stimulating future research, review articles (RAs) play a vital role for cumulative knowledge development. Although many papers cite RAs, it is rarely transparent to which degree citation impact represents perfunctory citations as opposed to a deeper engagement with a RA's knowledge contributions. This disti...
Conference Paper

Design science is a fundamental research stream that contends its position in the information systems discipline. While ongoing debates address the relative importance of design science contributions in the information systems community, insights into the scientific impact of design science research (DSR) are missing and this lack of understanding...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Standalone literature reviews are fundamental in every scientific discipline. Their value is reflected by a profound scientific impact in terms of citations. Although previous empirical research has shown that this impact has a large variance, it is largely unknown which specific factors influence the impact of literature reviews. Against this back...
Conference Paper
Nowadays, providing employees with failure-free access to various systems, applications and services is a crucial factor for organizations' success as disturbances potentially inhibit smooth workflows and thereby harm productivity. However, it is a challenging task to assign access rights to employees' accounts within a satisfying time frame. In ad...
Conference Paper
The economic aspect of information security is a comparatively new discipline so that there is hardly any extensive research work. This applies in particular to measures in highly distributed systems which have been neglected in previous research. The present paper focuses on the security investments in such systems. We augment an existing research...

Our research on “digital work” is interested in rapidly emerging forms of working and organizing enabled by digital technologies. Many kinds of work, especially knowledge work, are increasingly re-shaped by digital technologies. While some forms of digital working and organizing resemble their non-digital versions (e.g., professors giving remote lectures during the COVID19 crisis) several genuinely novel forms have emerged such as crowdsourcing (e.g., sourcing ideas from internal and external Internet “crowds”), open online collaboration (creating free digital goods such as Wikipedia), digital nomadism (people escaping settled 9-5 living through digital means) and digital hermitism (people withdrawing from society using digital tools). Entirely digital and remote organizations have emerged, and flexible “work from anyway” arrangements are increasingly technologically possible and becoming culturally accepted. We study the ongoing emergence of digital working and organizing, including “best practices” for organizations, workers and their often poorly understood individual, societal, economic and environmental consequences.
