Abstract [en]

The discussion of the core identity of IS research is dominated by a heatedcontroversy between the narrow and the broad views. The paper reviews differentperspectives of the core identity of IS and stand in with the broad view. We argued thatthe constant changes and developments of IT capabilities dynamically drive the corefocus of IS research and thus a broader view should be adopted. The paper presents therecent changes and developments of IT in the social computing era where we have shownhow recent developments have widened the scope of IS research by involving mutliplesocial aspects of investigation. We concluded the paper by proposing some properties ofIS research in this era.
