Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The study of Information Systems (IS) design is an essential part of the education of IS students and professionals. The purpose of this book is to provide a thorough reference on Design Science Research (DSR), and it comes from two authors closely identified with DSR – Alan Hevner and Samir Chatterjee. As founders of the Design Science Research in Information Systems and Technology (DESRIST) annual conference, and as leading educators and researchers in the field, these authors, along with several invited contributors , are uniquely qualified to create this easy-to-read, easy-to-understand, and easy-to-apply text/reference.

Suitable for graduate courses in IS, computer science, software engineering, engineering design and other design-oriented fields, it can be used as a core text or a reference for doctoral seminars in DSR. IS faculty and researchers will find much of value here as well. It requires no extensive background in design and can be appreciated by practitioners working in IS or technology design. Its 18 chapters are all individually referenced, and two appendices provide a reprint of the seminal 2004 MISQ paper by Hevner, March, Park, and Ram, as well as a list of exemplar papers in Design Science. The book provides a thorough introduction to DSR, a look at DSR in IS, examinations of DSR frameworks and design theory, and a look at the key principles of DSR in IS. Other chapters look at design for software-intensive systems, people and design, the past and present of software designs, evaluation methods, focus-group use, design creativity, and a design language for knowledge management systems.

Later chapters explore integrating action research with design research, design science in management disciplines, a critical realist perspective of DSR in IS, a taxonomic look at design of emerging digital services, the dissemination of DSR, and, finally, a look at the future for DSR in IS.

It was amazing to notice, from the beginning, a clear differentiation between Information Systems and Information Technology. After that, a clear definition, meaning or concept of words and terms used in this new knowledge field contributes to construct a solid "how-to" for people working on systems design research.
A huge number of references, some classical like Jay Forrester's Industrial Dynamics, others interestingly unusual as those on Flow Theory by Cskszentmihalyi, and mostly recent articles, certify the comprehensiveness of the approach.
I strongly recommend this book for all Information Systems students and professionals wanting to have an unclouded view of this Science and a broad perspective of future opportunities.

This book is a superb resource for people engaged in applied science / engineering research in the Information Systems domain. I have a core set of readings that every Ph.D. student should master to regard themselves as educated scientists. Among those are Stebbins (2001) Exploratory Research in the Social Sciences; Popper(2002) The Logic of Scientific Discovery; Dubin (1978)Theory Building; Yin (2003) Case study Research:Design and Methods; Shadish, Cook, and Campbell, Experimental and quasi-experimental designs for generalized causal inference; and now Hevner and Chatterjee,2010, Design Science Research. From the first week of its publication, I made it required reading for all my doctoral students. The lays out the scope and purpose of Design Science, positions it with respect to other research approaches, and then examines a number of philosophical and pragmatic considerations for the design science researcher.

A good read even if you are not a academic researcher. I found the ideas in this book innovative and relevant to many fields of design. I enjoyed exploring the methods of performing rigorous design for information systems and the human-based methods for use of these systems.

Format: Hardcover
The book was written in a clear and concise manner, with a plethora of citations. I liked the book because if divides the concept of "Design Science Research" in chunks, helping to bring newcommers of the field up to speed. The book is highly recommended for any researchers who are exploring the possibility of using Design Science Research methodology, as well as seasoned reseachers who are brushing up on DSR.

This book is very useful to me as a researcher, because it summarizes very well various concepts and approaches to design science. The book is a great guide on how to develop, build and evaluate IS artifacts. It is written in a very clear and understandable manner. The authors use a lot of examples and references to prior research projects. They provide a good context for design science and build the gap between theory and practice. I think this book is a must read for both researchers and IS practitioners, as it addresses real life problems using a rigorous scientific approach.
