Call For Papers
Computers in Human Behavior is a scholarly journal dedicated to examining the use of computers from a psychological perspective. Original theoretical works, research reports, literature reviews, software reviews, book reviews and announcements are published. The journal addresses both the use of computers in psychology, psychiatry and related disciplines as well as the psychological impact of computer use on individuals, groups and society. The former category includes articles exploring the use of computers for professional practice, training, research and theory development. The latter category includes articles dealing with the psychological effects of computers on phenomena such as human development, learning, cognition, personality, and social interactions. The journal addresses human interactions with computers, not computers per se. The computer is discussed only as a medium through which human behaviors are shaped and expressed. The primary message of most articles involves information about human behavior. Therefore, professionals with an interest in the psychological aspects of computer use, but with limited knowledge of computers, will find this journal of interest.

Special Issue on The social bridge: An interdisciplinary view on trust in technology
Submission Date: 2023-10-30

A substantial part of our everyday life consists in relying on other people or technologies to go beyond one's limits, overcome obstacles, solve problems, achieve goals that one would not be able to handle alone. Trust has gained relevance for understanding the human interaction with various kinds of technical systems (e.g., AI-based text generator, social robot, automated driving). It is an open question how theories, methods, and findings from the area of interpersonal trust can be transferred to the situation in which technology becomes a trustee. Some suggest that we rely only on the functionality, utility, and accuracy of non-human others. Conversely, technologies are increasingly social, in the sense they have human-like characteristics (as in social robotics and artificial intelligence) or enable human-to-human interaction (as in telecommunication and telepresence). Guest editors: Dr. Johannes Kraus, PhD Department of Human Factors, Ulm University, Ulm, Germany, Dr. Irene Valori, PhD Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop (CETI), Chair of Acoustic and Haptic Engineering, Technische Universitat Dresden, Dresden, Germany Dr. Merle Fairhurst, PhD Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop (CETI), Chair of Acoustic and Haptic Engineering, Technische Universitat Dresden, Dresden, Germany Special issue information: The purpose of this special issue is to bring together interdisciplinary researchers to explore the mechanisms and functions of trust in people and technologies and to deepen our understanding of the similarities and differences of human-to-human or human-technology trust, and the downstream effects they may have on social interaction in everyday life. We welcome contributions from engineering, cognitive, organizational, computational, clinical, developmental, social psychology and neuroscience, HCI, computer science, haptics, robotics and other areas or disciplines. Key themes are: Definitions and underpinnings of trust: when do we trust another party for their functional or personal characteristics? Dimensionality, structure and subfacets of trust Neural, physiological, and behavioral correlates of trust Trust in technologies and/or other people in the context of social exchanges Individual differences in trusting technologies and/or other people (e.g., socio demographic variables, age, culture, user dispositions, expertise, clinical conditions) Design principles and use cases of social technologies that we can trust Measurement of trust Relation of trust to behavioral outcomes, its mediators and moderators (Cognitive) modelling of trust Transparency of technology, XAI and trust
