Information systems are socio-technical systems. Their design, analysis and implementation requires appropriate languages for representing social and technical concepts. However, many symbolic modelling approaches fall into the trap of underemphasizing social aspects of information systems. This often leads to an inability of ontological models to incorporate effects such as contextual dependence and emergence. Moreover, as designers take the perspective of people living with and alongside the information system to be modelled social interaction becomes a primary concern. Ontologies are too prescriptive and do not account properly for social concepts. Based on State-Context-Property (SCoP) systems we propose a quantum-inspired approach for modelling information systems.
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.
