abstract

  • In this chapter, the authors do a citation analysis on Hofstede’s Culture’s Consequences in IS research to re-examine how IS research has used Hofstede’s national culture dimensions. They give a brief history of Hofstede’s research, and review Hofstede’s cultural dimensions and the measurement of them. The authors then present the results from their original citation analysis (which included years 1994-1999) from Ford, Connelly and Meister (2003) and their follow-up citation analysis (years 2000-2005). The authors examine the extent to which Hofstede’s national culture dimensions inform IS research, what areas of IS research have used them, and what changes have occurred since the original citation analysis. They then discuss the implications for IS research.
