By Nik R Hassan


This article responds to six rejoinders to Hassan [2014] and addresses their concerns surrounding the anxiety discourse in Information Systems (IS), the need to meet or exceed stakeholder expectations, the notion of originality and what it means to IS researchers, the nature of the core of IS research, and different strategies in establishing an academic discipline. This response argues for a focus on internal efforts to put our house in order ahead of reputational maneuverings, and proposes a closer examination of our intellectual structures
