Research on IS curriculum focus on how IS curriculum objectives are consistent with what ICT/IS employers’ demand. Emerging IS trends are the motivation for research on updating IS curriculum. Of particular concern is that most scholarship on IS curriculum is focused on undergraduate studies, with little literature on post-graduate curriculum. There is a gap in the current literature that trending research issues, as articulated in IS journals, have not been explicitly linked to the development of IS curriculum. Consequently, how the AIS/ACM curriculum models reflect current IS research issues has not been explicitly investigated. We would argue that the link between research and curriculum is particularly relevant to post-graduate studies. We conducted a review of recently published papers in the IS basket of eight journals and listed key subject terms that emerged from our review and compare the subject terms with the IS competency realm proposed in IS2020.
