Announcing the Publication of
Volume 1 Issue 3 of AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction

As co-Editors-in-Chief of the new journal, AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction (THCI), we are proud to announce the publication of its third issue. THCI is located within the AIS (Association for Information Systems) e-library (http://aisel.aisnet.org). To increase awareness and readership, THCI is freely accessible to everyone during its first two years of publication. You can find information related to all aspects of THCI at its website, including how to submit.

"The Intellectual Advancement of Human-Computer Interaction Research: A Critical Assessment of the MIS Literature (1990-2008)"
 By Ping Zhang, Na Li, Michael Scialdone, and Jane Carey

This paper assesses the intellectual advancement of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) scholarship as one of the five research streams of the Management Information Systems (MIS) discipline. It particularly demonstrates the vitality and maturity that the HCI stream (or sub-discipline) has achieved in recent years, and adds to the few studies that draw an overarching picture of HCI. This study uses the same approach as that of Zhang and Li (2005), and delineates the intellectual development of HCI research in MIS by employing a multifaceted assessment of the published HCI articles over a period of 19 years (1990-2008) in eight primary MIS journals. In addition, this study includes several journal special issues and two book collections in the assessment. Twenty-four specific questions are addressed to answer the following five mega-research questions about the HCI sub-discipline: (1) What constitutes HCI's intellectual substance? (2) What relationships does HCI have with other disciplines? (3) How is HCI evolving? (4) What are the patterns of HCI publication in the primary MIS journals? And, (5) Who are the contributing scholars? A number of areas for future research are predicted, along with a discussion of potential future directions for the sub-discipline. This study is of interest to researchers in the HCI sub-discipline, the MIS discipline, and other related disciplines to inform future research, collaboration, publication, and education. It should also be of interest to doctoral students for identifying potential topics for dissertation research and to identify academic institutions for future employment where such research is understood, appreciated, and encouraged.

Call for Papers

THCI is a high-quality peer-reviewed international scholarly journal on Human-Computer Interaction. As an AIS journal, THCI is oriented to the Information Systems community, emphasizing applications in business, managerial, organizational, and cultural contexts. However, it is open to all related communities that share intellectual interests in HCI phenomena and issues. The editorial objective is to enhance and communicate knowledge about the interplay among humans, information, technologies, and tasks in order to guide the development and use of human-centered Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and services for individuals, groups, organizations, and communities.

Topics of interest to THCI include but are not limited to the following:

 *   The behavioral, cognitive, motivational and affective aspects of human and technology interaction
 *   User task analysis and modeling; fit between representations and task types
 *   Digital documents/genres; human information seeking and web navigation behaviors; human information interaction; information visualization
 *   Social media; social computing; virtual communities
 *   Behavioral information security and information assurance; privacy and trust in human technology interaction
 *   User interface design and evaluation for various applications in business, managerial, organizational, educational, social, cultural, non-work, and other domains
 *   Integrated and/or innovative approaches, guidelines, and standards or metrics for human centered analysis, design, construction, evaluation, and use of interactive devices and information systems
 *   Information systems usability engineering; universal usability
 *   The impact of interfaces/information technology on people's attitude, behavior, performance, perception, and productivity
 *   Implications and consequences of technological change on individuals, groups, society, and socio-technical units
 *   Software learning and training issues such as perceptual, cognitive, and motivational aspects of learning
 *   Gender and information technology
 *   The elderly, the young, and special needs populations for new applications, modalities, and multimedia interaction
 *   Issues in HCI education

The language for the journal is English. The audience includes international scholars and practitioners who conduct research on issues related to the objectives of the journal. The publication frequency is quarterly: 4 issues per year to be published in March, June, September, and December. The AIS Special Interest Group on Human-Computer Interaction (SIGHCI, http://sigs.aisnet.org/SIGHCI/) is the official sponsor for THCI.
