'This article is mine' : a theoretical framework explanation proposal for editing conflicts in Wikipedia

Objectives: the main objective of this work is to analyze the editing conflicts that occur in the community of Wikipedia editors. To this end, it raises the need to identify different types of studies, as well as the analysis methods used and their theoretical frameworks of reference. Finally, we consider the possibility of establishing a general framework of explanation that can support the study of the information behaviour of the Wikipedia editor community.

Methodology: the analysis was conducted using qualitative content analysis of a set of scientific studies published on the subject under study.

Results: the results obtained allow us to affirm that there are three main types of studies whose theoretical approaches and analysis methods are heterogeneous. A broad explanatory frame is proposed, based on the notion of psychological property, in which quantitative and qualitative analysis techniques can be combined.
