RESEARCH TITLE: Online Gaming and Disruptive Behaviour: The Impact of Positive Behaviour and Community Cohesion

Abstract: This thesis aims to understand disruptive behaviour in online games. Specifically, the research aims to a) identify common patterns of disruptive behaviours, b) determine positive behaviour interventions that can be implemented to reduce and prevent this sort of behaviour, as well as c) understand the applicability, transferability and effectiveness of these strategies in online environments.
