Impact of a Computer-Based Communications Network on the Working Patterns of Researchers: Design for Evaluation of Effects Related to Productivity.
Johansen, Robert; Vallee, Jacques
This paper describes the design of a project to evaluate the impact of computer conferencing on the productivity-related work patterns of scientists, and to determine whether they will use the network this technology makes available to them. Literature relevant to this research problem is reviewed, drawing primarily from small group research on productivity and performance, and from research analyzing scientific research organizations. The research design and approach are described in some detail, and a bibliography is attached. (Author/JEG)
