Abstract

In this paper we present a case for culture to be incorporated as a major
construct in existing behaviour dependent IS research theories relevant for investigating
virtual environment behaviours. We identify these theories and examine its previous use
within IS researches. We argue that culture with regards to information systems should be
seen as primary identifier, identifying behaviour unique to certain groups of people thus
its importance in IS theories particularly those aimed at predicting virtual environment
behaviours.
