Abstract

This paper examines the impact of interdisciplinary IT standardization research by analyzing the International Journal of IT Standards and Standardization Research (JITSR). Three issues will be addressed: (1) What is the scientific impact of IT standardization research published in JITSR? (2) Are JITSR publications on IT standardization interdisciplinary, and if so, to what extent do they cite publications in other disciplines? (3) Is IT standardization research recognized as an interdisciplinary discipline, and if so, to what extent do papers in other disciplines cite JITSR publications? We find that although the scientific impact of JITSR is comparatively low, it is recognized in different disciplines. Our findings also show that research published in JITSR is, to some extent, interdisciplinary; papers published in JITSR refer to a number of different disciplines.
