  • Trade-offs and synergies of digital choice environments: Towards a
           taxonomy and configurational model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The advancing digitalization of daily life has led to an increasing number of choices in the digital sphere. User interfaces that require either a judgment or a decision, the so-called digital choice environments (DCEs), are essential focal points for interventions to alter behaviors towards individual or societal welfare. However, there is a lack of descriptive and prescriptive knowledge within the field of DCEs. In this research, we follow a multi-stage approach to classify the characteristics of DCEs from a choice-centric viewpoint and disclose configurational trade-offs. To achieve this, we first build a taxonomy of DCEs that we validate through expert interviews. Subsequently, we use cluster analysis to identify four configurations of DCEs, which serve as the basis for the development of a configurational model that outlines configuration-specific user outcomes. Our results contribute to the existing knowledge of digital value creation as well as the explanatory understanding of trade-offs among different DCEs.

  • Centralized exchanges vs. decentralized exchanges in cryptocurrency
           markets: A systematic literature review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Research on cryptocurrency exchanges, consisting of both centralized exchanges (CEXs) and decentralized exchanges (DEXs), has seen a significant increase in contributions in recent years, driven by growing interest in the conceptual design of cryptocurrency markets. Through a comprehensive review of literature published between January 2019 and September 2023, I identify and analyze different dimensions of the ongoing CEX vs. DEX debate. While DEXs emphasize decentralization, user control, and resistance to censorship, CEXs offer higher liquidity, advanced trading features, and a more established track record. Regulatory challenges, such as Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance, also feature prominently in the literature and influence the choice of exchange for both traders and policymakers. In addition, I observe a growing interest in the design of pricing functions for CEXs and DEXs, particularly in the area of automated market makers (AMMs). Finally, based on my findings, I outline future research opportunities in this context and derive research gaps as well as recommended actions for practitioners.

      Abstract: Abstract The Metaverse, an evolving concept that fuses physical reality with digital virtuality, offers a dynamic environment for exploration. This paper reports the panel discussion on the Metaverse and its potential implications for individuals and research. This discussion was held at the Digitization of the Individual (DOTI) workshop at the International Conference on Information Systems in December 2022. Four scientists who have researched virtual reality, immersiveness, and corresponding user behavior were invited to the panel discussion. The panelists offered their perspectives on the unique characteristics of the Metaverse, how it differs from earlier digital worlds, and the implications that the Metaverse will bring for individuals. This paper provides an introduction to the emerging phenomenon of “Metaverse” and summarizes the discussion and expert perspectives on the topic. Furthermore, this paper links the discussion to the ongoing discourse in the literature, setting the stage for further investigations by providing explicit research avenues and questions.

  • A face of one’s own: The role of an online personae in a digital age and
           the right to control one’s own online personae in the presence of
           digital hacking

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the post-Covid world, our online personae have become increasingly essential mechanisms for presenting ourselves to the world. Simultaneously, new techniques for hacking online personae have become more widely available, easier to use, and more convincing. This combination, of greater reliance on online personae and easier malicious hacking, has created serious societal problems. Techniques for training users to detect false content have proved ineffective. Unfortunately, legal remedies for dealing with hacked personae have also been inadequate. Consequently, the only remaining alternative is to limit the posting of false content. In this discussion paper, we provide an overview of online personae hacking. As potential remedies, we propose to redesign search engine and social media algorithms allowing platforms to detect and restrict harmful false content and a new fundamental right for the EU Charter that would provide legal justification for platforms to protect online reputations. For those platforms that might choose not to protect online reputations, this new right would require that they do so.

  • Textual sentiment analysis and description characteristics in crowdfunding
           success: The case of cybersecurity and IoT industries

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Crowdfunding platforms offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to evaluate their technologies, validate their market, and raise funding. Such platforms also provide technologies with an opportunity to rapidly transition from research to market, which is especially crucial in fast-changing industries. In this study, we investigated how the sentiments expressed in the text of the project campaigns and project characteristics influence the success of crowdfunding in innovative industries such as cybersecurity and the Internet of Things (IoT). We examined 657 cybersecurity and Internet of Things (IoT) projects between 2010 and 2020 that were promoted on Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, two rewards-based crowdfunding platforms. We extracted technological topic attributes that may influence project success and measured the sentiments of project descriptions using a Valence Aware Dictionary and sEntiment Reasoner (VADER) model. We found that the sentiment of the description and the textual topic characteristics are associated with the success of funding campaigns for cybersecurity and IoT projects.

  • Breaking the chains of traditional finance: A taxonomy of decentralized
           finance business models

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Recently, the looming bankruptcy of Credit Suisse, which ultimately led to its merger with UBS, has intensified the discussion surrounding the need for more transparent and democratic financial markets. Decentralized finance (DeFi) represents a departure from traditional financial intermediation by leveraging blockchain technology and smart contracts. Despite its growing importance, limited research has been conducted on the business models of DeFi services. This study aims to address this gap by examining the business models of various DeFi services, identifying key drivers of innovation, differentiation, and value creation. Using a rigorous taxonomy development framework, we identify 12 dimensions and 47 characteristics that operationalize business models in DeFi. Our findings contribute to a better understanding of the transformation of financial services through blockchain technology and provide valuable insights for DeFi entrepreneurs, investors, and policymakers.

  • This is why we pay—Motivational factors for supporting
           subscription-based crowdfunding campaigns

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Subscription-based crowdfunding platforms emerged as novel digital platforms that offer creators the possibility of financial independence. They differ significantly from traditional time-limited crowdfunding approaches by utilizing recurring payments and enabling a creator-centric rather than campaign-centric funding approach. We built upon previous research on individuals’ motivation to support crowdfunding campaigns, and utilizing self-determination theory, our study explores which subscription-based crowdfunding campaign characteristics influence individuals’ motivation to support them. We use a two-method approach by analyzing individual pledge data from a subscription-based crowdfunding platform and conducting a discrete choice experiment. Our results show that having a high number of previous supporters increases potential supporters’ willingness to pay, while a campaign’s current recurring income and the hiding of this piece of information decrease it. We could also identify a u-shaped effect of campaigns’ goal proximity on willingness to pay. We discuss the theoretical and practical contributions of our research and provide an overview of potential future research directions.

  • What we already know about corporate digital responsibility in IS
           research: A review and conceptualization of potential CDR activities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Advances in new technologies affect private and professional lives alike, posing new opportunities and threats for companies, consumers, and society. In this context, the concept of corporate digital responsibility (CDR) gains traction enabling technologies benefitting humanity while exceeding mere technology advancements. Yet, theory and practice still lack a systematic in-depth understanding of the concept’s scope up to concrete activities. The aim of this paper is to enable a more concrete and deeper understanding of the concept scope by drawing on available knowledge in the thematically related discipline of information systems (IS) in general and electronic markets in particular. The study employs an extended systematic literature review to aggregate prior knowledge in this research domain relatable to the concept of CDR and to develop an in-depth classification of potential CDR activities inductively according to ten dimensions, corresponding sub-dimensions, and respective fields of action. This contributes to the overarching goal to develop the conceptualization of CDR and to anchor the concept in the context of electronic markets, thereby fostering human and social value creation.

      Abstract: Abstract This paper investigates the potential of blockchain-based fan tokens, a class of crypto asset that grants holders access to voting on club decisions and other perks, as a mechanism for stimulating democratized decision-making and fan engagement in the sports and esports sectors. By utilizing an extensive dataset of 3576 fan token polls, we reveal that fan tokens engage an average of 4003 participants per poll, representing around 50% of token holders, underscoring their relative effectiveness in boosting fan engagement. The analyses identify significant determinants of fan token poll participation, including levels of voter (dis-)agreement, poll type, sports sectors, demographics, and club-level factors. This study provides valuable stakeholder insights into the current state of adoption and voting trends for fan token polls. It also suggests strategies for increasing fan engagement, thereby optimizing the utility of fan tokens in sports. Moreover, we highlight the broader applicability of fan token principles to any community, brand, or organization focused on customer engagement, suggesting a wider potential for this digital innovation.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper aims to systematically review the literature on electronic shopping cart abandonment (ESCA). It analyzes the development of ESCA literature in terms of publication trends, publication outlets, number of citations, methodologies, and theoretical underpinnings. Furthermore, based on the literature synthesis, this review proposes a conceptual framework integrating the widely used antecedents, mediators, and moderators that influence ESCA. The antecedents include customer attributes and website-related factors while research and comparison mediate the relationship between these antecedents and ESCA. Using lexicometric analysis, this SLR identified key themes studied in ESCA literature over time, including customer decision-making criteria, motives and characteristics, online shopping environment, and website attributes. Further, this SLR suggests future research directions to advance ESCA literature from theoretical, contextual, and methodological perspectives. This SLR also suggests strategies for e-retailers and marketers to overcome ESCA. Overall, this review is a silver line in ESCA literature.

  • AI Literacy for the top management: An upper echelons perspective on
           corporate AI orientation and implementation ability

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We draw on upper echelons theory to examine whether the AI literacy of a firm’s top management team (i.e., TMT AI literacy) has an effect on two firm characteristics paramount for value generation with AI—a firm’s AI orientation, enabling it to identify AI value potentials, and a firm’s AI implementation ability, empowering it to realize these value potentials. Building on the notion that TMT effects are contingent upon firm contexts, we consider the moderating influence of a firm’s type (i.e., startups vs. incumbents). To investigate these relationships, we leverage observational literacy data of 6986 executives from a professional social network (LinkedIn.com) and firm data from 10-K statements. Our findings indicate that TMT AI literacy positively affects AI orientation as well as AI implementation ability and that AI orientation mediates the effect of TMT AI literacy on AI implementation ability. Further, we show that the effect of TMT AI literacy on AI implementation ability is stronger in startups than in incumbent firms. We contribute to upper echelons literature by introducing AI literacy as a skill-oriented perspective on TMTs, which complements prior role-oriented TMT research, and by detailing AI literacy’s role for the upper echelons-based mechanism that explains value generation with AI.

  • Designing a conversational agent for supporting data exploration in
           citizen science

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Data is ubiquitous in today’s digitized society. However, access to and literacy in handling data plays a pivotal role in determining who can benefit from it and who can use—or potentially misuse—it. To combat inequalities and address issues such as misinformation, it is essential to enable citizens to effectively access and understand data within their local ecosystems. To address this challenge, we focus on the case of citizen science and propose using a conversational agent to support data exploration and lower barriers to citizen engagement in research projects. Using a design science research approach, we derive design principles and develop a prototypical artifact. Moreover, we conduct an experimental evaluation, demonstrating strong interest among citizens to participate in scientific data analysis and that conversational agents hold great potential in increasing data literacy.

  • The duality of reputation portability: Investigating the demand effect of
           imported ratings across online labor markets

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Online labor platforms have been criticized for fueling precarious working conditions. Due to their platform-bound reputation systems, switching costs are prohibitively high and workers are locked-in to the platforms. One widely discussed approach to addressing this issue and improving workers’ position is the portability of reputational data. In this study, we conduct an online experiment with 239 participants to test the effect of introducing reputation portability and to study the demand effect of imported ratings. We find that the volume of imported ratings stimulates demand, although to a lower degree than onsite ratings. Specifically, the effect of imported ratings corresponds to about 35% of the effect of onsite ratings. The results imply the possibility of unintended cross-market demand concentration effects that especially favor workers with high rating volumes (“superstars”).

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper examines the Chinese live streaming industry, highlighting issues such as counterfeit advertisements and fraudulent activities due to inadequate managerial oversight. It proposes a behavior evolution game process involving platforms, consumers, and live streamers, using prospect theory and rank-dependent expected utility theory. The findings underscore a pivotal revelation: the platform can establish a system to monitor commodity quality and live broadcast content compliance using blockchain technology and big data. A live streamer credibility assessment system is envisioned and established, acting as a sentinel to ensure compliance with integrity. Additionally, the platform is equipped with a customer complaint handling system and an emotion monitoring system to capture sensitive information. These mechanisms quickly address customer complaints and anticipate consumer actions and enhance consumer regulation and prevent conflicts.

  • Beyond control over data: Conceptualizing data sovereignty from a social
           contract perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the data economy, data sovereignty is often conceptualized as data providers’ ability to control their shared data. While control is essential, the current literature overlooks how this facet interrelates with other sovereignty facets and contextual conditions. Drawing from social contract theory and insights from 31 expert interviews, we propose a data sovereignty conceptual framework encompassing protection, participation, and provision facets. The protection facets establish data sharing foundations by emphasizing baseline rights, such as data ownership. Building on this foundation, the participation facet, through responsibility divisions, steers the provision facets. Provision comprises facets such as control, security, and compliance mechanisms, thus ensuring that foundational rights are preserved during and after data sharing. Contextual conditions (data type, organizational size, and business data sharing setting) determine the level of difficulty in realizing sovereignty facets. For instance, if personal data is shared, privacy becomes a relevant protection facet, leading to challenges of ownership between data providers and data subjects, compliance demands, and control enforcement. Our novel conceptualization paves the way for coherent and comprehensive theory development concerning data sovereignty as a complex, multi-faceted construct.

  • An empirical study on traditional offline retailer’s switching intention
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract To enter the offline channel, the community-based group buying (CGB) platform usually recruits group leaders to perform corresponding tasks (i.e., creating new customers, information disseminating, marketing, and goods delivering). A major type of group leader is the traditional offline retailer, who runs a convenience store in the community and is considered as the core bond among three parties, namely, platforms, merchants, and consumers. Drawing upon the PPM theory and TAM model, this study aims to investigate the switching intention of traditional offline retailers to embrace platform’s recruitment and undertake group leader roles towards the CGB program. With primary data collected from 365 respondents, we establish a structural equation model and conduct the empirical analysis. Results suggest that both push and pull factors exert positive effects on convenience storekeepers’ switching intention, while the perceived risk (i.e., one of the mooring factors) hinders the switching intention. However, switching cost, as another mooring factor, does not significantly predict the switching intention. These additional constructs in the push–pull-mooring (PPM) model are considerably helpful for improving the understanding of traditional offline retailer’s switching intention towards community-based group buying and could offer several managerial implications for group buying platforms.

  • Getting to know my disease better: The influence of linguistic features of
           patients’ self-disclosure on physicians’ social support in online
           health consultation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The popularity of online health consultation (OHC) has grown rapidly in recent years and has become a common method for patients to receive affordable healthcare. Despite its widespread use, the impact of patients’ linguistic styles when describing disease symptoms on their continued engagement in consultation remains unclear. Drawing upon social support theory, this study examines the relationship between patients’ linguistic features in self-disclosing disease symptoms and their continued consultation behavior, specifically investigating the role of doctors’ social support. Data was collected from 46,012 patient consultation records on a leading Chinese online health platform. The study’s empirical results demonstrate that the sentence complexity of patients’ self-disclosure has an inverted-U relationship with physicians’ doctors’ social support, while the text length and affective expression of patients’ self-disclosure are positively effective in invoking doctors’ social support in online health consultation. Moreover, the study identifies the moderating influence of patients’ offline visit experience on the above relationships. Finally, for patients with (or without) offline visit experience, doctors’ informational support increases (or decreases) the likelihood of patients’ continued consultation. This study contributes to the creation of long-term doctor-patient relationships in OHCs and the design of platforms through the retention of patients.

      Abstract: Abstract Digital ecosystems are a highly relevant phenomenon in contemporary practice, offering unprecedented value creation opportunities for both companies and consumers. However, the success of these ecosystems hinges on their ability to establish the appropriate incentive systems that attract and engage diverse actors. Following the notion that setting “the right” incentives is essential for forming and growing digital ecosystems, this article presents an integrated framework that supports scholars and practitioners in identifying and orchestrating incentives into powerful incentive systems that encourage active participation and engagement. This framework emphasizes the importance of understanding how individuals and groups are motivated to engage in the ecosystem to incentivize them effectively. To demonstrate its applicability and value, we show its application in the context of an emergent digital ecosystem within the Smart Living domain.

  • Data Sovereignty in Information Systems

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Data has become a strategic asset for societal prosperity and economic competitiveness. There has long been an academic consensus that the value of data unfolds during its use. Consequently, many stakeholders have called for expanding the use and reuse of data, including the public and open variety, as well as that from private data providers. However, citizens and organizations want self-determination over their data use, that is, data sovereignty. This fundamentals paper applies a literature review to conceptualize the term in Information Systems (IS) research by summarizing current findings and definitions to add further structure to the field. It contributes to the current research streams by introducing a core conceptual model consisting of seven interacting core aspects, involving trust between data providers and consumers for data assets, supported by data infrastructure and contractual agreements on all data lifecycle stages. We evaluate and discuss this conceptual model through recent field examples and provide an overview of future research opportunities.
