V. ), The Culture and Power of Knowledge, Walter de Gruyter, Berlin, 1992, pp. , The professionalization for everyone, American Journal of Sociology, 7, 1964, pp. fi Abstract: In Information Systems (IS) research, there is a wide range of research methods available. Yet the selection of a suitable research method remains a problem. March and Smith (1995) proposed a classification of research methods. Instead of their great merits, for example, differentiation between design science and natural science, we would here like to supplement them with some important amendments like mathematical approaches, theoretical studies and the dissensus and consensus views.

Järvinen building process design science stresses the expected utility of the desired state of the new system. During the evaluation of the ready-made instantiation its final state (or more exactly its goal function) is compared with the expected state (its goal function). Hence, values play a crucial role in design science research. Deetz (1996) proposed two dimensions to contrast Burrell and Morgan's (1979) dimensions. The first new dimension (local/emergent vs. elite/ a priori) focuses on the origin of concepts and problem statement as part of the constitutive process in research.

Implications March and Smith (1995) placed much emphasis on design science with two activities, build and evaluate. It is interesting to note that Susman and Evered (1978) described action research as a repetitive performance of the following cycle: Diagnose, plan, implement, evaluate and learn. e. when a new system is built. Hence, action research seems to contain both the build and evaluate activities (cf. Järvinen 2007a). This may resolve the problem of how to categorize action research. Ives et al.
