1Ou, C.X.J. ; Davison, R.M.: Shaping guanxi networks at work through instant messaging.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 67(2016) no.5, S.1153-1168.
Abstract: Instant messaging (IM) has become increasingly prevalent in social life. However, the use of IM at work remains controversial, owing to its unclear benefits to organizations. In this study, we employ media performance theories and the concept model of communicative ecology to examine the impact of an IM tool on shaping guanxi (i.e., interpersonal relationship) networks in the workplace. Specifically, we propose that IM has the potential to enhance guanxi networks by improving communication quality and building interlocutors' mutual trust in the workplace. The conceptual model is validated with 253 survey responses collected from working professionals in China. The data indicate that communication quality and mutual trust contribute to the development of guanxi networks. The theoretical and practical implications of the findings are discussed.

2Davison, R.M. ; Ou, C.X.J. ; Martinsons, M.G. ; Zhao, A.Y. ; Du, R.: ¬The communicative ecology of Web 2.0 at work : social networking in the workspace.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 65(2014) no.10, S.2035-2047.
Abstract: Social media have transformed social interactions and now look set to transform workplace communications. In this exploratory study, we investigate how employees use and get value from a variety of social networking technologies. The context of this research is 4 software firms located in China. Notwithstanding differences in corporate attitudes toward social networking, we identify common themes in the way Web 2.0 technologies are leveraged as value is created by employees at all levels. We draw on the communication ecology framework to analyze the application of various technologies. We inductively develop 5 propositions that describe how social networking technologies contribute directly to horizontal and vertical communication in organizations, and ultimately to individual, team, and organizational performance. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
3Yan, Y. ; Davison, R.M.: Exploring behavioral transfer from knowledge seeking to knowledge contributing : the mediating role of intrinsic motivation.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 64(2013) no.6, S.1144-1157.
Abstract: Knowledge contributing has long been identified as a bottleneck in knowledge management since individuals tend to believe that their contributing would not be worth the effort, given high levels of expectation to receive some value in return. Self-perception theory posits that individuals come to "know" their own internal beliefs by inferring them partially from observations of their own overt behavior. Building on self-perception theory and adhering to the principle that the relationship between behavior and beliefs is one of mutual influence, we develop a research model to explore the behavioral transfer from knowledge seeking to knowledge contributing and consider the mediating effect of intrinsic motivation. Data collected from 430 users of Web 2.0 applications were used to test the model. The mediating role of intrinsic motivation between knowledge seeking and knowledge contributing is confirmed. These findings and their implications for theory and practice are discussed.
