    The authors discuss a review of qualitative papers on information systems (IS) published in various journals between 2001 and 2012. They explain trends related to qualitative research in the chosen journals and the key anatomical components of a qualitative research manuscript, including the research focus component, data collection and the contribution component. They also describe several principles that may provide holistic guidance to both researchers and evaluators.
