Theme of the 2016 Edition (Verona, October 7th, 2016): “The most popular IT tools enabling the research workflow”

Chair: Prof. Eusebio Scornavacca, University of Baltimore

The Doctoral Consortium Workshop is free of charge for all doctoral students registered at the itAIS 2016 Conference.
The itAIS Doctoral Consortium is characterized by a specific focus on how ICT-enabled innovation is influencing the research workflow and the interactions within and across scholarly groups, institutions and communities.

In its 2016 edition, the itAIS DC Workshop will provide an overview on the most popular ICT tools in all the phases of the research workflow, and will facilitate a discussion among faculty and PhD students on the pros and cons of these tools. In particular, the discussion will focus on how the awareness of the workflow phases and the mastery of some key ICT tools may influence young scholars’ first career steps. The discussion will be based on the framework and survey by J. Bosman and B. Kramer (Utrecht University Library), available online (

The 2016 Workshop will discuss the role and key functionalities of popular and emerging ICT tools in the typical research workflow of information systems, management, organization and business studies, such as GanttProject, fsQCA, myExperiment, Scopus, ResearchGate, Publons, ORCID, etc.
