Celebrating 50 Years of Industrial Management & Data Systems

Industrial Management & Data Systems

Volume 121, Issue 1 celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first edition of Industrial Management (the predecessor of IMDS). To commemorate this milestone, we have invited prominent scholars and senior editors from IMDS to contribute their valuable ideas and thoughts on the latest developments in research methods in ISs and Operations Management.

In the anniversary issue, Joe F. Hair Jr provides an overview of emerging prediction assessment tools for composite-based PLS-SEM that enhances the ability of researchers to demonstrate generalization of their findings. Markus Blut addresses meta-analytical techniques in IS discipline and provides guidance on major method choices in each step of meta-analysis. Our invited renowned scholars also point out several emerging areas which deserve more attention from academia. Venkatesh et al.  present suggestions for IS researchers about how they can direct some of their research efforts to consider, conceptualize and incorporate time into research endeavors. Cheung et al. provide a rich conceptualization of an online disinhibition instrument that can serve as a springboard for future work to understand online deviant behaviors. Sarkis et al. provide directions for future research on addressing the role of digitalization in green supply chain by systematically reviewing relevant literature published in IMDS over the past 50 years. Guo et al. present an Industry 4.0 paradigm-GiMS which aims to explore Industry 4.0 technologies opportunities on operations and production management. Wu et al. discuss risk perception and intelligent decision-making under the complex social information network to maintain social security and financial security and called for further research in this emerging area. Shameen Prashantham draws attention to new ventures as focal actors in innovation ecosystems orchestrated by hub firms to stimulate further research aimed at understanding how value can be co-created by participants in digital ecosystems. Graesch et al. apply the digital transformation levers to the marketing discipline to demonstrate the impacts of technologies on marketing tools and their potential future. Wang et al. review literature on omnichannel retail to provide suggestions on future research in this multidisciplinary domain.
