book chapter description
This article examines the problem of categorising dimensions of information quality (IQ), against the background of a serious engagement with the hypothesis that IQ is purpose-relative. We examine some attempts to offer categories for IQ, and diagnose a specific problem that impedes convergence in such categorisations. Based on this new understanding, we suggest a new way of categorising both IQ dimensions and the metrics used in im- plementation of IQ improvement programmes according to what they are properties of. We conclude by outlining an initial categorisation of some IQ dimensions and metrics in standard use to illustrate the value of the approach.
