The paper reported research that identified the originating disciplines of scholars that contributed to academic articles associated with the information systems (IS) domain. The research was based on reliable university-derived data that allowed the examination of 1449 information systems related articles that were published in 649 different journals. The study further mapped articles to a sub-set of highly regarded journals to determine the performance of Australian academics in the IS-area. Across a total of 344 authors involved with the 140 articles, 25 different author-disciplines were identified— highlighting the diverse backgrounds of contributing authors and the potential for individual papers to draw on a range of foundations to facilitate a form of knowledge synergy. The study was able to identify that cross-discipline knowledge collaboration was symptomatic of research that was associated with articles more likely to be published in high quality journals.
