The Growth of Understanding in Information Science: Towards a Developmental Model.
Ford, Nigel
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v50 n12 p1141-52 Oct 1999
Explores similarities between research approaches characterizing different paradigms in information science and different information-processing styles of individual researchers. Proposes a model of the way in which new knowledge is generated, based on these similarities. The model focuses on "research pathologies," and ways in which the research output of information science may be enhanced. Contains 44 references. (Author/AEF)
