International Journal of Human-Computer Studies (IJHCS): Special issue on
Privacy Methodologies in HCI

Guest Editors: Asimina Vasalou (University of Birmingham), Tristan
Henderson (University of St Andrews), Adam Joinson (University of Bath)

Privacy has become one of the most contested social issues of the
information age. For researchers and practitioners of human-computer
interaction (HCI), interest in privacy is not only sparked by these changes
in the scale and scope of personal information collected and stored about
people, but also because of the increasing ubiquity, sociability and
mobility of personal technology. However, privacy has proven to be a
particularly difficult construct to study. As a construct, privacy is also
open to investigation from multiple perspectives and ontological
approaches, with key research coming from law, psychology, computer science
and economics.

The special issue on privacy methodologies in HCI invites high quality
research papers that use a variety of methods where the author(s) reflect
on and evaluate the method itself, both as applied in their specific
context, and more widely, as well as the privacy aspect under consideration.

Authors are asked to consider key questions in their papers:

· What was the privacy context being researched?
· Why was the particular methodology chosen for a given context?
· What selection criteria were used? What were the advantages and
disadvantages of the methodology?
· How was bias and priming avoided? Was there evidence of a ‘measurement
· How did the researcher ensure the sample was representative, avoiding
sample-based biases?
· What were the results? How could this method be used to study other
aspects of HCI and privacy?
