Theory : An informatics perspective

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter


This chapter explores the concept of theory from an informatics perspective. That is, it frames a theory as a conceptual pattern, an information construct or ontology, and theory building as a process that creates uses and modifies a pattern. An agenda for information systems as a discipline for explicit pattern management is proposed.
