Abstract—The aim of this study is to explore research trends in computer crime and cybercrime from 1968 to 2009. The findings of the current study will provide some insight into scholarly activity related to computer crime and cybercrime and will be useful in tracking computer user’s illegal behavior research trends. Our other goal is to explore the range of the theoretical lens that can be used to understand social controls in restraining computer user’s illegal behavior intention. Towards this goal, this study proposed five propositions based on containment theory. Our propositions address social control education, and offer insights in restraining computer user’s illegal behavior intention.

Index Terms—containment theory; computer crime; cybercrime; social control, user illegal behavior.
