In our recent article (Recker/Mendling, BISE 2015), we found that business process management (BPM) research appears to be approached with certain biases and blind spots. This provides opportunities for future research, but also calls for a clarification of BPM research from a more general perspective. In this talk, I integrate different perspectives from the philosophy of science with the aim to organize the field.
