Abstract

Towards a Framework of Literature Review Process in Support of Information Systems Research

This paper introduces an initial effort towards developing a framework for writing an effective literature review. The target audience for the framework are novice IS researchers or other researchers who are constantly struggling with the development of an effective literature-based foundation for the proposed research.
The proposed framework follows the systematic data processing approach comprised of three major stages:
1) inputs (literature gathering and screening),
2) processing (Blooms Taxonomy),
and 3) outputs (writing the review).
This paper provides the rationale for developing a solid literature review and addresses the central stage, processing the lit- erature. The paper concludes by providing arguments for the value of an effective literature re- view as well as implications for future work in this proposed framework.
