Organizational Behaviour is very important for Enterprise Information Management and Archiving, but it is neglected within the archival science literature. My project is trying to find an answer on two essential questions about behaviour in organizations, which need to be answered in a chapter of a book I am writing at the moment. Those questions are about  the constituents of (organizational) behaviour that affect archiving, and  the contextualizing of that behaviour by archivists when capturing records and archives. In my project I want to do a theoretical analysis of scientific literature, especially concerning management science, psychology and psychiatry.
