Coherent and explicit are straightforward and understandable terms. Our accounts must be coherent because incoherent accounts are difficult to follow and inherently suspect. Our accounts must be explicit for three reasons. Firstly, because we seek to be rigorous and precise. If we do not describe—precisely—what we did, and do not provide—precisely—the background information, and do not detail the assumptions we built on, then our work cannot be judged fairly. It may not be bad work, but it will be impossible to tell.

People tend to seek confirmatory evidence, to try to demonstrate what they believe to be true.

A different aspect of the trading zone is the necessity to play back into our own discipline. We must engage with the validity of methods in terms of the originating discipline, but also (when we engage with our CS colleagues) the validity of the investigation (and its methods and conclusions) within CS.
