Abstract

This study reviews and synthesizes over 15 years of research on human factors issues in conceptual data modeling. In addition to analyzing the variables used in earlier studies and summarizing the results of this stream of research, we propose a new framework to help with future efforts in this area. We also identify several key areas for future research and highlight the importance of building a strong theoretical foundation and using it to guide future empirical studies. It is our hope that this chapter allows both scholars and practitioners to utilize the results of existing research better and encourages continued work on conceptual data modeling.
