Meta-research (research on research) is a reflection among Information Systems (IS) scholars on issues surrounding the production of IS research. As such, it is a valuable venue for scholarly discussion within IS. It includes topics like 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 for evaluating scholarship, literature reviews, IS methods guideline reviews, as well as novel methods, theories, and debate.

The overall goal of the track is to showcase unique leading edge empirical, theoretical commentary that comprises what we call meta-research. A proper venue for reflexive work has been lacking within the structure of usual tracks at AMCIS. This kind of overview allows the discipline to assess and choose core premises. It is especially important because of the diversity of topic domains that fit into the overall IS scope, which is essentially multidisciplinary in terms of source foundations. The track provides a coherent framing for papers that might be rejected in other tracks for lack of fit, and a place for theoretically diverse and reflexive scholars to share perspectives. It also looks at the discipline as a scholarly culture.
