Dear colleague, it is our pleasure to announce the establishment of a new AIS Special Interest Group on Advances in Sourcing ( https://communities.aisnet.org/sigsourcing/ )
This new AIS SIG aims to bring together researchers that take interest in various aspects associated with the sourcing of IT, software development, business processes, software services, ideas and/or data in digital global economy. Research interests that fit under this 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 (including RPA, ML and AI) 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 from different levels of analysis, 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”.
We have a strong group of founding members (see below) who cordially invite those interested in sourcing-related topics to join this SIG and contribute to the further development of this topic in the IS community.

We take this opportunity to announce the launch event of this AIS SIG during ICIS, on December 13th, featuring keynote talks by Rudy Hirschheim and Sirkka Jarvenpaa. See more details on our web-site https://communities.aisnet.org/sigsourcing/
