This paper aims to contribute to the debate on the relationship between Information Systems (IS) and other Management (MGT) fields of studies. We present the preliminary results of the publication statistics, co-citation, and crosscitation analyses performed on a dataset of 54 and 169 “simulation related studies” published in top IS and MGT journals in the last thirty years. The analysis shows that this stream of research allows to comparatively analyze the evolutionary trends of research outcomes and impact, and to better understand the cumulative tradition of the knowledge creation process in the IS and MGT communities. Although research in IS is unlikely to build on and cite prior research, its influence on other fields is proportionally similar in magnitude to the external influence of MGT studies.
