Abstract

Mobile phone use is a highly prevalent behaviour, particularly amongst adolescents and young adults; however, there is little research investigating psychological factors influencing mobile phone use. This study adopted a theory of planned behaviour belief-based framework to investigate whether young adults who engaged in high and low level mobile phone use differed in their behavioural, normative and control beliefs in relation to mobile phone use.

Impact and interest:

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.
