Evolution of the Gender Research Agenda in the Senior Scholars Basket of Journals. A Literature Review

Gorbacheva Elena

This study is aimed at analyzing gender-related challenges, which motivated research published in the Senior Scholars' “Basket” of Journals. Based on a literature review of 22 papers having a topic of gender in core of their research, seven categories of challenges were identified. It is analyzed how the factors motivating research on gender and Information Systems evolved over time. It is also discussed, which papers under study and the related categories of challenges turned out to be scientifically demanded. It was found out that the category concerned with under-representation of women in Information Systems, which motivated the majority of studies under investigation, is not highly cited by other researchers. The paper contains a detailed description of the research method used, discussion of results, as well as study limitations and propositions for future research.
