The advent of the Internet and the subsequent adoption of open access schemas are changing the nature of the scholarly discourse. In response, we will stimulate a debate about the role and desired form of open access publishing in the context of the IS discipline. In particular, we explore the potential contribution of establishing an open access disciplinary repository of working papers and work in progress. Furthermore, we propose its design principle and illustrate our thesis with a working prototype of such disciplinary repository entitled Sprouts (http://sprouts.aisnet.org). Finally, we call for participation and further action in realizing a global repository of IS research in progress.
