Abstract:
As part of a research project funded by the German Research Foundation
	(DFG) a series of expert interviews was performed with renowned researchers
	in the fields of Information Systems (IS) and Wirtschaftsinformatik
	– the corresponding IS field in German speaking countries. The interviewees
	selected have been in the field from its beginning and have not only
	observed the field’s development but have shaped it, for example,
	through the initiation of conferences and associations, curriculum
	efforts and by establishing new IS departments. The study’s objective
	is to reconstruct the development and status of the discipline by
	taking advantage of the diverse perspectives and experiences of the
	researchers. This report presents in detail the research approach
	of the interview study, including the selection of interview partners,
	the interpretation process, and the topical areas of interview schedule.
