The information audit: Methodology selection


Buchanan S & Gibb F (2008) The information audit: Methodology selection. International Journal of Information Management, 28 (1), pp. 3-11.

This paper considers the comprehensiveness, applicability, and usability of four commonly cited information audit methodologies. Comprehensiveness considers the conceptual, logical, and structural completeness of each methodological approach. Applicability considers the scope of each approach, and the ability to tailor the approach to individual organisational requirements. Usability considers the perceived ease with which each approach can be adopted and applied. A methodological baseline has also been established, which provides a reusable framework to guide future methodology selection, and for developing an individual or tailored approach to the information audit
