This tutorial will provide an overview of the core issues underlying the development and use of computer- based microworlds in IS research. It will also discuss the pragmatics of publishing research that employs microworlds. The material covered in the tutorial will be illustrated through the example of a microworld that has been extensively employed by the presenter in his research.
