Abstract: Technophobia has been an enduring problem in industrial economies over the last
20 years. Though explanatory models have been proposed to explain the prevalence of
technophobia, these efforts have been diffuse, contradictory, and lacking in integration
and explanatory and predictive utility. Using technophobia as the background variable,
this research examines the role of scaling and framing in organizational research. It is
argued that these particular issues, though endemic to research in other areas of social
sciences as well, are worthy of exploration in the context of technophobia particularly in
light of contradictory findings. - sciencedirect.com
