Title: Desing Science Applied to PhD Research
Description: The last ten years has seen a surge of interest in design science research in information systems, and of empirical research in software engineering. In this talk I present a framework for design science in information and software systems engineering that shows how in design science research, we iterate over designing new artifacts, and empirically investigating these artifacts. The logic of both of these activities, design and empirical research, is that of rational decision making. I show how this logic can be used to structure our research questions as well as how to structure reports about our research. This gives us a checklist for designing empirical research. Finally, I will discuss in more detail what the role of theories in design science research is, and how we use theory to state research questions and to interpret the research results.
