25 ans de recherche en Systèmes d'Information <i>(initialement publié en 2002)</i>
1018 articles in MIS published since 1977 have been fully read and analyzed in order to describe the research activity in the MIS field. First of all we explain the deductive and multi dimensional approach used. Then we describe the typical components of the resear- ch field and his evolution from 1977 to 2001. The research field seems to be continuously centered on a prevailing problem: the Evaluation. A comparative analysis between the French-spoken and the English-spoken researches shows numerous differences in the pro- blems studied and in the way the research is conducted.
The author bears the responsibility for checking whether material submitted is subject to copyright or ownership rights (e.g. figures, tables, photographs, illustrations, trade literature and data).
