Stress is a societal and economical problem increasingly discussed in literature. Although technology may itself induce stress, various studies highlight its potential for stress management. Current research focusses on developing systems that assess people's stress using mobile devices' sensing capabilities. These mobile stress assessment (MSA) systems collect and analyze sensor data on the user, the environment, and their interplay. Various instantiations have demonstrated the feasibility of MSA in different application scenarios. However, a common ground on MSA design is yet missing. In this work, we investigate design-related differences and commonalities of MSA in a literature analysis comprising 112 studies. We establish a design knowledge base, which introduces an abstract blueprint consisting of common architectural components, proposes design elements shaping the design depending on the application scenario, and describes archetypes prevailing in current litera ture. Future research should extend our work to a design theory to promote stress-adaptive information systems development.
