Research quality depends on appropriate statistical validity, a major aspect of which is appropriate instrumentation. This survey examines the quality of IS instrumentation in five leading journals for a five-year period and concludes that much has been done to improve IS research quality through better instrument validation since the last two benchmark studies. Additional recommendations dealing with the current weak spots are discussed.
