AIS Transactions on Replication Research


Editors-in-Chief: Sue Brown, University of Arizona
Alan Dennis, Indiana University

The mission of TRR is to publish reports of Information Systems replication studies until scientific consensus is reached. All topics in IS are open for consideration and articles will either support the findings of the original article or provide results that do not support the original article (e.g., non-significance). Either outcome will advance science in the Information Systems discipline as the results may validate previous findings or trigger additional replications and new follow-on research in other journals that seek to understand in what contexts the theory applies and why the original findings are only generalizable to those contexts.

Authors are strongly encouraged to read our founding editorial that argues for the importance of replication. It is available at http://aisel.aisnet.org/trr/vol1/iss1/ or here.

To submit a manuscript, read the "Information for Authors" and "Policies" pages, then go to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ais-trr.

In the news
