The collective consciousness of information technology research. Research students' ways of seeing information technology research: its objects and territories
Bruce, Christine S., Pham, Binh L., & Stoodley, Ian D. (2005) The collective consciousness of information technology research. Research students' ways of seeing information technology research: its objects and territories. (Unpublished)
The aim of the project reported here was to investigate dimensions of the collective consciousness of information technology (IT) research. In particular, the study explored how research students see: • research, and particularly IT research; • the information technology research field, or territory. What are the features of the field? What are its boundaries?; and • the information technology research object. How do IT researchers see the ‘things’ underpinning their research? How do they collectively constitute or ‘shape’ the object of IT research? What kinds of shared understandings do they have of their research object? How do their understandings differ?
The primary outcome from this study is a framework comprising a set of categories, each of which represents significant differences in IT research students’ ways of seeing IT research, its objects and territories.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
