Following on the success of this track in 2018, this track serves as the primary point of contribution and subsequent publication of innovative meta-research articles. Meta-research (research on research) is a venerable and valuable research stream within Information Systems. Meta-research is the discussion that goes on between IS scholars on issues surrounding the production of IS research. It includes such areas as discussions of the structure and development of the field, the core and boundaries of the field, field legitimacy, scholar/department/journal/ country ranking methods, discussions of research culture and practices, methods of evaluation of scholarship, literature reviews and research commentaries. The purpose of the track includes showcasing unique and leading edge empirical, theoretical, and commentary papers in the area of meta-research. Typically, there has not been a good location for these types of papers within the structure of the usual tracks provided. This track will provide a welcoming space for such papers. If successful, we look forward to subsequent tracks, workshops, and perhaps even a new SIG.
