Submit a Paper to the International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction (IJMHCI)

Published Quarterly. Est. 2009.

The International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction (IJMHCI) brings together a comprehensive collection of research articles from international experts on the design, evaluation, and use of innovative handheld, mobile, and wearable technologies. This journal will also consider issues associated with the social and/or organizational impacts of such technologies. Emerging theories, methods, and interaction designs are included and complemented with case studies, which demonstrate the practical application of these new ideas.

The Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction (IJMHCI) would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript for inclusion in this scholarly journal. The following describes the mission, coverage, and guidelines for submission to IJMHCI.

Mission

The primary objective of the International Journal of Mobile Human Computer Interaction (JMHCI) is to provide comprehensive coverage and understanding of the issues associated with the design, evaluation, and use of mobile technologies. This journal focuses on human-computer interaction related to the innovation and research in the design, evaluation, and use of innovative handheld, mobile, and wearable technologies in order to broaden the overall body of knowledge regarding such issues. IJMHCI also considers issues associated with the social and/or organizational impacts of such technologies.

Submission

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit their original empirical research articles 5,000–7,000 words in length. Interested authors must consult the journal’s guidelines for manuscript submissions at http://www.igi-global.com/publish/contributor-resources/before-you-write/ prior to submission. All submitted articles will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis by no fewer than 3 members of the journal’s Editorial Review Board and 1 Associate Editor. Final decision regarding acceptance/revision/rejection will be based on the reviews received from the reviewers and at the sole discretion of the Editor-in-Chief.

When submitting your manuscript for initial review, please do NOT remove figures from the file and ignore any error messages that leaving figures in situ may generate. Removal of images is only needed upon successful acceptance of a manuscript.
