Abstract [en]

Following previous research findings, this paper argues that the currently predominant method of evaluating scholar performance - publication counts in “quality” journals - is flawed due to the subjectivity inherent in the generation of the list of approved journals and the absence of a definition of quality. Truex, Cuellar, and Takeda (2009) sought to improve on this method by substituting a measurement of “influence” using the Hirsch statistics to measure ideational influence.  Since the h-family statistics are a measure of productivity and the uptake of a scholar’s ideas expressed in publications this methodology privileges the uptake of a scholar’s ideas over the venue of publication. But influence is built through other means than by having one’s papers read and cited. This paper argues that interaction between scholars resulting in co-authored papers is another way to build scholarly influence. This aspect of scholarly influence, which we term social influence, can be assessed by Social Network Analysis (SNA) metrics that examine the nature and strength of coauthoring networks among IS Scholars. The paper demonstrates the method of assessing social influence by analysis of the social network of AMCIS scholars and compares the results of this analysis with other co-authorship networks from the ECIS and ICIS communities.
