Examining the quality of research in information systems will indicate that a high-quality research is one which uses appropriate tools and techniques in the manner intended, and uses validation to ensure this. In determining the quality of research, concepts are operationalized by developing constructs for investigation purposes and the need to systematically test them for their validity in its many components. If the process is subjected to evaluation and progressive improvement then quality will be enhanced.
