Scholarly personal narrative is a constructivist research methodology that recognizes the researcher’s personal experience as a valid object of study. Drawing from information systems research demonstrating the value of storytelling to knowledge management, we suggest scholarly personal narrative offers IS researchers a new tool to enhance research relevance, scholarly discourse, and pedagogy. We suggest IS research scenarios where researchers might successfully apply new methodology.
