ABSTRACT

“Much of the research in information systems and information technology (IS/IT) has been
dominated by a U.S-centric or a Western-centric view. Research paradigms and models developed for the
U.S. and Western Europe are just that, i.e., applicable primarily in the western context. Unsuspecting
researchers have taken the same models and applied them to other nations, e.g., underdeveloped
countries, emerging economies, transitional economies, and middle-eastern countries. The results have
been misguided and spurious in many cases. “
