The paper I (and my supervisors) submitted to the Journal of Librarianship and Information Science (JoLIS) is now available online.

The article was developed from a presentation I delivered at the i3 conference back in June 2017 and is entitled ‘Applications and applicability of Social Cognitive Theory in information science research’.

The paper (co-authored by  Professor Hazel Hall and Professor Robert Raeside) discusses the theoretical framework I chose to underpin my ESRC/Skills Development Scotland funded doctoral work and the use of this framework in Information Science research. Origins and key concepts of Social Cognitive Theory (SCT) are discussed and illustrated with examples from a range of disciplines. This is followed by an analysis of the contribution of SCT to Information Science research with final discussions and reference to the use of SCT in a project on workplace learning and innovative work behaviour (my doctoral work).

The paper has now been published in the Journal of Librarianship and Information Science (JoLIS) as an OnlineFirst paper.
