Während der Feiertage ist die neue Ausgabe des Journals for Information Architecture veröffentlicht worden. Es umfasst (wieder) drei umfangreiche Artikel und ein Vorwort.
Alle Artikel sind als .pdf verfügbar.
- Byström, Pharo & Resmini – Open 24/7 (Editorial)
- S Bussolon – Card Sorting, Category Validity, and Contextual Navigation
One of the main goals of information architecture is to organize an informational domain into a usable taxonomy. This is, however, a difficult task […].
The aim of this paper is twofold. The first purpose is to propose some measure of the fitness of a taxonomy as a both whole and as individual items. Three measures will be presented […]. All of these measures can be calculated from the results of the card sorting.
The second goal is to present a contextual navigation that could ameliorate the findability of those items whose classification has been proven to be problematic, and to increase the information scent of the whole domain.
- B. Kaltenbacher – From Prediction to Emergence
This paper aims to discuss the position of the traditional usability model in the context of current technical interaction, and in particular in internet interaction. […] [T]he traditional usability model needs to be expanded beyond an entirely functional focus, to accommodate the richer notion of the user experience. This article […] inquires how an expanded understanding of emotions can support such an enriched usability model.
- David Walczyk & Cedomir Kovacev – Mediation as Message
Recent formal and informal discourse within information architecture (IA) and interaction design (IxD) suggests that the fundamentals may not be working as well as they used to. We interpret these concerns as opportunities and, by engaging with the principles and practices of media ecology, have perceived them for some time.
We propose that the problems projected onto IA / IxD fundamentals may not be with the fundamentals per se, but rather with the perceptual model that we used to create them.
