Finholt, Thomas A.; Teasley, Stephanie D.
Social Science Computer Review, v16 n1 p40-52 Spr 1998

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.
