Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Many of the notions, which underpin the study of Information Systems (IS) and IS Management are based on systems theory. However the sciences of complexity are in many ways complementary to those of systems theory, whilst helping to enrich and deepen our understanding of the arena of discourse. This article outlines the contribution made by complexity to IS. It will define some key principles, explain how they can enrich IS thinking and offer an example to illustrate some of the principles.
