Dr. Clyde W. Holsapple, a Fellow of the Decision Sciences Institute, holds the Warren Rosenthal Endowed Chair in the Gatton College of Business and Economics at the University of Kentucky. Formerly, he was a tenured faculty member at the University of Illinois and a Full Professor in Purdue University's Krannert Graduate School of Management. Dr. Holsapple has also been active in the software industry, designing tools that foreshadowed basic features that have come to be commonplace in today's software systems.
Professor Holsapple is one of the founding scholars of the decision support systems field. From the 1970s onward, he made several seminal contributions to this field, including introduction and delineation of the knowledge-based view of decision making/support, creation of the generic decision support system (DSS) architecture aligned with this view, design of an invariant and practical software engine whose ability to handle diverse object types allows it to drive wide-ranging DSS application systems, identification of key parameters for studying multiparticipant DSSs, and conception/demonstration of the first artificially intelligent DSSs. Professor Holsapple has also made seminal contributions that help define and shape the emerging discipline of knowledge management (KM) - which is a major reference discipline for the DSS field. These include creation of the Knowledge Management Ontology, the Knowledge Chain Theory, the PAIR Model of knowledge-based competitiveness, and the initial characterization of knowledge-based organizations. Most recently, he has contributed to the science of informetrics via the design/application of a behavior-based technique for measuring knowledge distribution channels, and has launched a research initiative aimed at defining/developing the science of competitiveness. 
Professor Holsapple's 150 journal publications have appeared in such notable periodicals as Decision Sciences; Decision Support Systems; Operations Research; Organization Science; Communications of the ACM; Journal of Operations Management; Group Decision and Negotiation; Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education; Journal of American Society for Information Science and Technology; The Information Society; Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice; Journal of Strategic Information Systems; Journal of Management Information Systems; Human Communications Research; Knowledge, Technology, and Policy; Journal of Knowledge Management; Knowledge Management Research and Practice; Knowledge and Process Management; Expert Systems with Applications; International Journal of Electronic Commerce; Financial Management; International Journal of Logistics Management; Computational Economics; Transactions of the Information Processing Society of Japan,IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, and IEEE Intelligent Systems,among others.
Additionally, Dr. Holsapple has published over a dozen books, includingthe classic Foundations of Decision Support Systems (about which Herbert Simon has written: a "pioneering book" showing the "applicability of techniques drawn from computer science -- from artificial intelligence and database management -- to decision making in organizations ... takes an important step in this new direction."), Business Expert Systems, Decision Support Systems - A Knowledge-based Approach, Handbook on Decision Support Systems, and Handbook on Knowledge Management.
Active in promoting the decision sciences, Professor Holsapple is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic Commerce, which has now been published for over 20 years. He has served asSenior Editor of Information Systems Research; inauguralArea Editor forboth Decision Support Systems and the INFORMS Journal on Computing; Associate Editor of Management Science and Decision Sciences. He has also served as Chair of the DSI Publications Committee. His participation in DSI Annual Meetings includes delivering tutorial and highlighted presentations, mentoring for Doctoral Consortium Strategic Research Planning, being a panelist, chairing tracks and sessions, and presenting and reviewing research papers.
Recognitions of Dr. Holsapple's research accomplishments are evident in several ways. He is recipient of the Essential Science Indicators Top 1% Designation by Thomson-Reuters, the University of Kentucky's inaugural Robertson Faculty Research Leadership Award, the state of Kentucky's R&D Excellence Award, and several best paper awards. The influence of his research is documented in an independent citation study, which states that he is one of most influential authors in U.S. academic institutions for DSS research - ranking second in the number of publications cited over a 19-year period. A citation study from the University of Minnesota concludes that Dr. Holsapple is a seminal author in the KM field. Furthermore, a scientometric analysis from the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (Mumbai, India) states that he is one of the five most productive authors in the history of the KM discipline - out of over 10,000 KM authors tracked.
An accomplished teacher, Professor Holsapple has received the Chancellor's Award for Outstanding Teaching at the University of Kentucky, been consistently recognized on the University of Illinois Teaching Excellence List, and been honored with the Computer Educator of the Year Award from the International Association for Computer Information Systems. Professor Holsapple has chaired over 25 completed doctoral dissertations and has been a committee member for over 50 others.
Dr. Holsapple's work spans and integrates seven primary research streams: Decision Support Systems, Knowledge Management, Organizational Computing, Electronic Commerce, Informetrics, Artificially Intelligent Systems, and Data Base Management.
