Series Overview

This is the index-page for a series of papers. The series presents a model of entities and identities to support the design of effective information systems. The motivation is to reflect the relevant part of the real world in a manner that is economic but sufficiently comprehensive and realistic that misunderstandings common during the last few decades are overcome or avoided.

Each paper is designed to be read standalone, but each is likely to be more fully appreciated if the series is read in sequence.

Links to, and brief explanations of the papers are provided here:

  1. A Pragmatic Metatheoretic Model for Information Systems Practice and Research
    This reviews relevant findings in philosophy, in order to establish firm conceptual foundations, and declares a working set of assumptions in each of the areas of ontology, epistemology and axiology
  2. A Pragmatic Model of (Id)entification
    This is the centrepiece of the series. It presents the model, which encompasses entities, identities, nyms, and their representation in data models
  3. Extension of the Pragmatic Model of (Id)entification to Authentication
    This addresses the question of how assertions are assessed, in relation not only to entities and identities, but also value, attributes and authority
  4. Extension of the Pragmatic Model of (Id)entification to Authorisation
    This applies and extends the model to access control and the management of the privileges made available to users of electronic services
  5. Application of the Pragmatic Model of (Id)entification to Data Quality
    This applies the model to deliver insights into the many quality dimensions of data relating to entities and identities
  6. The Authentication of Assertions of Fact
    This examines a further category of assertions, in light of the model, in order to provide an analytical framework for consideration of such phenomena as misinformation, disinformation, 'false news' and 'alternative facts'

Source List

[ TO BE INCLUDED HERE AND HERE ALONE ? ]

This Working Paper draws on, consolidates and extends a long series of more than 10 working papers and 5 refereed publications. They are listed here as a matter of record and as a form of declaration of re-use or 'self-plagiarism'. Some are cited in the Working Paper. The conceptualisations and model have developed a great deal during the course of the more than 30 years over which the papers extend. There are accordingly inconsistencies both among them, and between the earlier papers and the present work. This includes considerable adjustment from the most iteration of the model from the version published in 2010, in order to achieve greater consistency with prior literature and the subsequently proposed pragmatic metatheoretical model.
