After witnessed three decades of development in information systems research, I find that we need to develop a new way to further enhance the area. One important issue is that constructs in our area are often defined and/or applied “flexibly” by researchers. As a result, different findings could be inconsistent, non-duplicable, and not directly comparable. This, in fact, strongly violates the basic rule of scientific research and is often under the criticism of natural scientists.
