This paper presents a process model for Information Systems (IS) scholars conducting Design Science Research (DSR). The paper argues that the impact of DSR on the IS discipline has been inhibited by perceived limitations in the rigor of DSR studies, and that such perceptions are often due to a lack of procedural transparency surrounding the development process in DSR studies. To help address this issue, the paper presents the Process Model for increased Procedural Transparency (PMPT). A range of design literature is analyzed to identify and characterize the distinct stages of design-oriented research. These stages are laid out in a process model, which is then bound in a recursive instantiation, and demonstrated through an application. The paper concludes with a discussion of the contribution of PMPT, as well as opportunities for future research.
