Does Academic Sloppiness Hurt EA?

There are surprisingly few researchers publishing articles about Enterprise Architecture from universities.  Even well considered programs like Penn State and MIT may only publish four or five papers a year.  Therefore, when a single researcher (a doctoral candidate at a well regarded university) publishes no fewer than fourteen separate papers on Enterprise Architecture over the course of three years, a few directly through the British Computer Society website, folks like me notice.

Unfortunately, as this article will show, this researcher appears to be building a body of sloppy work that he promotes widely, potentially harming both the profession of Enterprise Architecture and the reputation of the British Computer Society for promoting him.
