Formatted Abstract/Summary
Introduction
PC workers are used to thinking of the literature of their field (or more broadly, its knowledge system) as a major product of PC research. This presentation, rather than providing empirical data, presents a complementary framework for research which is based on the PC knowledge system, and/or oriented towards that system. Others are invited to critically discuss this framework, and to contribute towards research within it.

Conclusion
It is hoped that by providing this framework, others will be stimulated to collaboratively contribute to a better understanding of the ways that PC research can be translated into practice, and the development of tools to do so.
