IS researchers are using survey methods as a means of determining and explaining practical phenomena. There is, however, growing concern over the rigor of the research performed by IS researchers. This study attempts to establish proper criteria and evaluate MIS survey research over the past decade. Specifically, the volume, trends and quality of research are described and discussed. The results indicate that while there is a need for more methodological rigor along the guidelines suggested, there are some indications of the maturing of the IS field.
