Resum:

"However, these and other theory-engaged writings of recent years may raise question marks over the other 'values of theory' identified by Sahay and Walsham. In terms of communication between researchers, IS and development writings show a surprising and disappointing lack of inter-referencing. That is, theory-engaged writers rarely reference other IS and development writers, except self-references to their own previous work."
