The Concept of Information Overload: A Review of Literature from Organization Science, Accounting, Marketing, MIS, and Related Disciplines

“In this article, we present a review of the literature on information overload in management-related academic publications. The main elements of our approach are literature synopsis, analysis, and discussion (Webster & Watson, 2002). These three elements serve, in our view, the threemain purposes of a literature review, namely, to provide anoverview of a discourse domain (e.g., compiling the main terms, elements, constructs, approaches and authors), to analyze and compare the various contributions (as well as their impact), and to highlight current research deficits and future research directions. These three objectives should be met, with regard to the topic of information overload, as a clear overview, an analysis of the major contributions, and an identification of future research needs still missing for this topic”
