The IS field is growing rapidly and new technological developments are providing new possibilities for business improvement. Therefore, there is a great opportunity for academic IS research due to the new business models, new procedures or even new, unprecedented problems. However, the research does not always hold out the prospect of developing or upgrading the IS field since many papers are merely published for the sake of publishing itself. They neither develop the theory, nor help the business. The aim of this research is thus to examine the impact and relevance of IS research by different stakeholders, namely academics, IS managers, top managers and students. The research will outline problems related to IS research dissemination among various stakeholders and present practical directions for future research.
