Abstract

Argues that the computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) community should adopt a stronger orientation to other social science disciplines, particularly psychology. Greater attention to psychological literature provides three benefits: well-validated principles about human behavior in group and organizational contexts relevant to CSCW research; reliable and proven measures of human behavior; and data collection/analysis methods that identify salient and generalizable features of human behavior.
