Title: Empirical vs. Non-Empirical Work in Information Systems Security: A Review and Analysis of Published Articles 1995-2005
Author(s): Jeffrey Stanton
Keywords: Information systems security, Empirical research, Literature review
Abstract: Information Systems Security is generally recognized as a small subfield of the larger field of Information Systems. A literature analysis of articles published in the field of Information Systems Security in the years 1995-2005 is presented. Results from the analysis suggested showed that the mix of article content in this subfield favored articles without data. This finding, along with other related findings suggests that the field is in a relatively early state with respect to scientific maturity. Comprehensive literature review articles published in high impact Information Systems journals and a journal dedicated to the subfield may help ISS to progress into a more scientifically mature phase.
