In this seminar, Robert Davison will explore how researchers motivate their research and in particular focus on the concept of problematisation. He argues that a careful problematisation will lead to a better motivated research design that has more significant contributions to both research and practice. The seminar will contrast problematisation with the often-practiced "gap spotting" approach, and outline some of the deficiencies of the latter. It will provide examples of problematisation and ideas about how the technique can be applied in practice. The seminar should provoke debate about how and why we do research. The speaker will also provide reflections from the perspective of an editor on the nature of contribution in Information Systems and will be very open to a conversation with the audience about any aspect of IS publishing.
