The issue of ‘transforming Research into Practice’ is not new to the discipline of Information Systems and has generated much interest over the years. In this paper we propose to examine the transfer of research knowledge and research skills from Academic supervisors to undergraduate students. This study will focus on the transfer process occurring during the students’ final year whilst undertaking the honours research component of their degree program. This research-in-progress paper proposes a conceptual research-to-practice diffusion framework in order to facilitate the study of the transfer of research knowledge and research skills via the application of social judgement theory as the underlying theory. A pluralist methodology with a sequential research design is proposed for this exploratory study.
