An interdisciplinary journal defining and reporting on the challenging issues in making computational technology work for people, Human-Computer Interaction publishes theoretical, empirical, and methodological articles on the user sciences and system design as it affects individual users, work groups, communities, and social and organizational settings. Human-Computer Interaction publishes articles that combine research theory and methods in computer science, cognitive science, social science, and design. HCI articles are the most extensive, in-depth investigations of important research issues in the field. HCI also publishes articles with novel perspective and methods. HCI seeks to foster a scientific understanding of the cognitive behavior of computer users and the organizational and social impacts of computer use. HCI is concerned with the individual user, small working groups of users, and also the larger social and organizational context of user communities. Theoretical papers should deal with scientific models of user learning or performance or with social models of the user community. Empirical papers may range from controlled laboratory experimentation to field observation. Methodological papers should be analysis and study research methods.
