to the official page of the Special Interest Group on Advances in Sourcing (SIG Sourcing) of the Association of Information Systems. This site provides networking opportunity to the members of the special interest group, a way of keeping in touch between meetings, and information to keep you current with the latest developments.
SIG Sourcing was formed in 2018 in response to the growing interest in the IS research community on various aspects associated with sourcing of IT, software development, business processes, software services, ideas and/or data in digital global economy.
Research interests that fit under the broad umbrella of Advances in Sourcing include aspects directly relating to sourcing decisions, organizing and governing sourcing relationships, traditional and online sourcing models, digital sourcing platforms and sourcing outcomes/performance for various sourcing arrangements; viewed from different perspectives (e.g., client and/or supplier firm, crowdsourcing platform and/or individual actors), and studied with different levels of analysis and using different methods.
To capture the dynamics of the sourcing phenomenon, this SIG aims to promote emerging issues and topics of this rapidly evolving phenomenon, which is reflected in the title as “Advances”.
Overall, SIG Sourcing seeks to contribute to the development and refinement of the members' knowledge on sourcing, and to enhance the quality and acceptability of sourcing research in the IS discipline. We seek to achieve the above objectives through seminars, conferences
, and on-line resources
