Announcing the Publication of
Volume 2 Issue 1 of AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction
We are excited to be entering our second year of our journal AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction. With the deadline of our first special issue approaching, and proposals for several other special issues in hand, we look forward to growth in the journal.
THCI is located within the AIS (Association for Information Systems) e-library (http://aisel.aisnet.org/thci). To increase awareness and readership, THCI is freely available to everyone during its first two years of publishing (2009 and 2010). You can find information related to all aspects of THCI at its website, including how to submit.
In this issue
Gasimov et al. have converted the streets and homes into their laboratory in this interesting and clever field study, using a quasi-experimental design. The study examines actual usage of coupons received by email versus SMS and from peers versus merchants. The authors presented an earlier version of this paper at the pre-ICIS Workshop on HCI at ICIS (International Conference on Information Systems) in Phoenix, for which it was nominated for a best paper award. This paper is an expanded version of that earlier one, fast-tracked to our journal. As you look over the paper, we believe you will understand why it received the nomination.
"Do the Means and the Source Matter? A Study on the Actual Usage of Digitally Disseminated Coupons"
By Anar Gasimov, Juliana Sutanto, Chuan-Hoo Tan, and Chee Wei Phang
How to effectively distribute coupons digitally to consumers who may exercise them remains an enduring, yet important, issue to address. In this study, we seek to answer two questions. First, would the dissemination of product discount coupons through mobile technology, such as the mobile phone network via the short-message-service (SMS), yield different effects on consumers, compared to a more traditional communication technology such as e-mail? Second, does the source, that is, the merchant or referral from peers, matter to a consumer? We build on the theoretical lens of cognitive effort (technology) and social capital (source) to theorize and empirically validate the conjectures through a real-world field experiment spanning four weeks. In terms of technology, the results indicate no significant difference in terms of the usage rate of coupons between the two technological means through which the coupons were disseminated. However, in terms of the source, we observed a higher propensity of using coupons received from a peer as compared to coupons received from a merchant. Furthermore, the forwarding rate of the discount coupons was significantly higher via e-mail as compared to SMS. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
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.
Call for Special Issue on Design Research in HCI
Design Research creates, builds, and evaluates innovative artifacts such as constructs, frameworks, models, methods, and information systems. It also investigates methods, behaviors, and processes related to design. HCI Research is concerned with the ways humans interact with information, technologies, and tasks, especially in business, managerial, organizational, and cultural contexts. Although design, implementation, and evaluation of interactive information systems for human use in various contexts for various purposes are central parts of HCI research, IS scholars have yet to invest more effort on the design part of HCI. The critical role of design research in HCI is obvious.
This special issue of THCI calls for innovative design research where the innovative artifacts are information and communication technologies (ICT) for human use. Emphasis can be on both the human and the ICT sides of the interaction. On the human side, use design draws from the knowledge base of psychology, social sciences, and human factors. On the ICT side, interface and interaction design draws from the knowledge base of computer graphics, sensory peripheral devices, and other technical areas to build user interfaces that enable effective system use.
Topics include but are not limited to:
* Science and/or theories for design in HCI
* Philosophical foundation of design in HCI
* New principles and methods of design in HCI
* Specific design innovations to support individuals, groups, organizations or societies
* Design aesthetics, emotional design, affective computing
* Evaluating and comparing new interactions and interfaces
* Integration of new technologies in HCI designs
* Best practices of design in HCI
* Impacts of mobility and distributed computing in HCI designs
* Impacts of service-oriented architectures and cloud computing on HCI designs
* Ethical issues of HCI design
