The results of a series of three surveys, published by the MIS Quarterly, have designated issues of primary concern to IS practitioners. In addition, Gillenson and Stutz have recently identified the major publication outlets for IS research. By mapping the topics addressed in these research publications with the primary issues of concern to the practitioner, this study responds to the question of how much IS researchers are addressing key practitioners concenrs. Findings suggest that IS researchers have been focusing on important practical issues but that these issues were critical to IS practitioners in the early 1980's. While some of these issues, such as end-user computing, data management, and software development may be of such abiding interest that it is appropriate to continue research in these areas, other topics have yet to receive the attention that they might deserve. The findings also specify practitioner issues that have experienced an increase or decrease in research interest and the publication outlets that emphasize primary practitioner issues.
