Abstract

Many design science research (DSR) papers in IS suggest sets of "design principles" (DPs) as their major contributions. However, the reusability of these DPs in the real practice has been largely neglected. This paper proposes a framework of five criteria reusability evaluation: (1) accessibility, (2) importance , (3) novelty and insightfulness, (4) actability and guidance, and (5) effectiveness. We believe that the framework instantiated as a lightweight tool can be used to improve proposals of DPs by design science researchers and thereby increase the reusability of the proposed DPs. This is important for DSR to maintain its practical relevance.
