Abstract

This paper employs citation analysis to investigate empirically the influence of MIS Quarterly on both IS and other literature. Specifically, we examine the impact of source article category, method type, and research area on article citation rates. Our results reveal that the citation-based quality indices of MISQ have been improving over the years. In addition, among the six categories of MISQ source articles, the methodological articles on average receive the most citings per article. Moreover, of the source articles employing different research methods, surveys, case studies, and lab experiments are more likely to be cited. Among source articles addressing different research areas, those focusing on IT and individuals receive the most citings per article. Finally, our analysis also shows that MISQ articles are well-cited by researchers from both IS and other disciplines, implying that IS does make knowledge contribution to other disciplines.
