The purpose of this paper is to investigate two sided $\alpha $-derivations satisfying certain differential identities on 3-prime near-rings. Some well-known results characterizing commutativity of 3-prime near-rings by derivations (semi-derivations) have been generalized. Furthermore, examples proving the necessity of the 3-primeness hypothesis are given.
