Description

Whilst the research on interorganizational information systems (IOS) in digitalizing supply chains has been steadily growing, not much effort has been directed at understanding the insights that have been generated from prior studies. This study addresses this research gap by conducting a systematic literature review of IOS within the supply chain management (SCM) context. Ninety-six papers met the inclusion criteria and were systematically reviewed to provide new insights on IOS in SCM. The study examines trends of research on IOS (rate of publication, publication outlets, leading authors, methodology type and underlying theories) and the context of current IOS research (industry or sector and geographical context). The study concludes by offering some recommendations to guide future research into IOS and proposes a research agenda for IOS research in Africa.
