Abstract

The management of records in South Africa has been the subject of extensive and rigorous discussion over several decades. This article provides an outline of masters and doctoral dissertations that have investigate different aspects of the management of records with an emphasis on digital records. The discussions demonstrate that there are a large variety of studies that have been conducted but a number of them have not leveraged on findings of previous studies nor have they engaged on conceptual clarity of terms. This article is an effort in contributing to coalescing efforts and catalysing discussions on these fundamental pillars in order to encourage further research.
