Scope of the special issue

Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is a dynamic and multidisciplinary field that continually evolves with the changing landscape of technology and human needs. At the heart of HCI research lie the methods we employ to understand, design, and evaluate interactive systems and user experience. HCI has inherited methods from other disciplines, sometimes (radically) changed them to suit our purposes, and we have created our own methods.

To foster the growth of our field, we invite contributions to a special issue of Interacting with Computers dedicated to discussing the challenges and innovations in research and practice in the fields of HCI and UX. As evidenced by the history of our journal, these papers make a significant contribution to the HCI community and are often widely cited. We welcome submissions that discuss the challenges of current methods or shed light on innovative methodological approaches, reflect on existing methods, or provide strong empirical evidence to consolidate and improve our methodological toolkit. Whether you are a researcher, designer, or practitioner, we invite you to contribute to this important dialogue.

Types of Contributions might include:

  *   Innovative methodological approaches: Share ground-breaking methodological innovations that have the potential to reshape HCI and UX research and practice.
  *   Empirical studies enhancing methodological understanding: Present empirical studies that validate and consolidate sets of methods, providing valuable guidance to the community.
  *   Reflective insights into existing methods: we welcome submissions offering critical reflections on established methods, highlighting their strengths, limitations, and areas for improvement.
  *   Case studies and practical applications: share real-world case studies and practical applications of methods, illustrating their relevance and impact in solving complex problems.
  *   Interdisciplinary perspectives: we encourage methodological contributions from various disciplines such as design, anthropology, or sociology, as long as they contribute to or are applied within HCI and UX domains.

If you are not sure whether your submission would fit the special issue, please contact Helen Petrie ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>), one of the co-editors, with a short abstract.

Submission Guidelines

Initial extended abstracts of up to 1500 words can present an outline of the paper and its contribution in any way you prefer, please submit a PDF document.

Full manuscripts should adhere to the guidelines provided on the Interacting with Computers (IwC) website ( Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous peer-review process.
