Information System is associated with the fields of computer science, business and management, which strategically focuses on the design, deployment and impact of ICT to the individual, society and also businesses.
The diversified nature of IS has brought about the interactions between the technological system and the social system, hence fostering various interdisciplinary research to a wider perspective.
In Malaysia, the IS research community is led by the Malaysia Association for Information Systems (MyAIS), which is also one of the international chapters within the Association for Information Systems (AIS). AIS is an international, non-profit professional association that undertakes the mission to serve the society through the advancement of knowledge and the promotion of excellence in the practice and study of information systems. As a leader in Malaysian IS community, MyAIS always works closely with faculties, schools or research groups from public and private universities to synergize the expertise for the purpose of research, publication and commercialization activities.
In promoting research and the knowledge sharing culture among the IS communities, MyAIS, School of Computing’ UUM and ISSIRG UTM have collaborated to organize the third Malaysia Doctoral Consortium for Information Systems on the 21st November 2020 via online seminar platform. Twelve research proposals are accepted and all these proposals are now available as a Book Chapter in MyAIS website. This Book Chapter entitles “EXPLORING INFORMATION SYSTEMS RESEARCH BOUNDARIES (EISRB) – SERIES 3” serves as valuable insights to researchers and practitioners, as well as those who are interested in the IS domain to know the current IS research in Malaysia. The list of chapters is as follows:
