Following previous research findings, this paper argues that the current method of evaluating scholar performance, publication counts in " quality " journals is flawed by subjectivity in generating the list of approved journals and the definition of quality. Truex, Cuellar and Takeda (2009) sought to improve on this method by substituting the measurement of(More)
This study examines the use of journal rankings and proposes a new method of measuring IS journal impact based on the Hirsch family of indices (Hirsch 2005; Sidiropoulos et al. 2006). Journal rankings are a very important exercise in academia since they impact tenure and promotion decisions. Current methods employed to rank journal influence are shown to be(More)
This paper explores the applicability of the concepts of absorptive capacity and ''ba'' to ex ante project risk. We develop a hybrid framework to explain knowledge transfer based on these concepts—one that proposes a hybrid trans-ference process. We then apply this framework to develop a methodology and metric for assessing ex ante software project risk,(More)
The concept of system use has suffered from a "too simplistic definition" (DeLone and McLean [9], p. 16). This paper reviews various attempts at conceptualization and measurement of system use and then proposes a re-conceptualization of it as "the level of incorporation of an information system within a user's processes." We then go on to develop the(More)
This study examines the use of journal rankings and a relatively new method of measuring impact of research as a surrogate of scholarly impact: the Hirsch Index (Hirsch 2005). Journal rankings are a very important exercise in academia since they impact tenure and promotion decisions. Current methods employed to rank journal influence are shown to be(More)
Assessing the work of scholars is of great importance in the life of academic institutions, disciplines and scholars. Research suggests that that the notion of 'scholarly influence' should be substituted for current approaches towards judging scholarship (Truex et al. 2009). This paper seeks to examine the nature of the construct 'scholarly influence' by(More)
