Sawyer, Steve, Kaziunas, Elizabeth and Oeesterlund, Carsten (2012): Social scientists and cyberinfrastructure: insights from a document perspective. In: Proceedings of ACM CSCW12 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work 2012. pp. 931-934. Available online

Contemporary cyberinfrastructure (CI) seem poorly developed to meet the distributed work practices of social scientists. We draw from the literatures of science studies and e-science practices to advance a document-centered articulation of social scientists' distributed work practices. We report on a pilot study to provide some insights into CI needs for these scholars. This study relied on a mixed-methodological approach involving the mapping of digital and physical documents, automated tracking of desktop and online repositories, participant-generated images of physical documents and desktop, behavioral queries, along with interviews and participant observation. Findings suggest a document perspective provides insight into the distributed work practices and CI uses of social scientists.

Yan, Jasy Liew Suet and Kaziunas, Elizabeth (2012): What is a tweet worth?: measuring the value of social media for an academic institution. In: Proceedings of the 2012 iConference 2012. pp. 565-566. Available online

Determining the influence of organizational Twitter accounts is far from an exact science, although numerous companies (most prominently Klout) have recently sought to find appropriate metrics and algorithms. Klout, a company that measures influence on the social web, recently ranked Syracuse University (SU) as the No. 2 "Most Influential College on Twitter". While at first glance, Klout's ranking presents a flattering portrayal of SU's adept use of social media, we question if the Klout score has real substance, and actually reflects the effectiveness of SU's social media strategy. This paper explores the issue of how one assigns value to a tweet in the context of an academic institution from a survey of SU students on their motivation of Twitter use, behavior, and perception of value associated with a tweet. As users primarily read tweets to obtain interesting information, preliminary findings indicate that users in academic institutions are more concerned with the quality of tweet contents as opposed to how influential the institution is on Twittersphere.

Liew, Jasy Suet Yan, Kaziunas, Elizabeth, Liu, JianZhao and Zhuo, Shen (2011): Socially-interactive dressing room: an iterative evaluation on interface design. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 2023-2028. Available online

This paper explores the formative user interface design of a socially-interactive dressing room. The socially-interactive dressing room allows shoppers to talk to their friends in real time for opinions on their garment purchasing decisions. Our work is motivated by the observation that shoppers who lack fashion sense often rely on their friends' opinions when making garment purchasing decisions. Using the iterative user interface design methodology, we conducted a mini focus group and interviews among male and female shoppers to refine the user interface design. Our findings suggest that an iterative approach proves to be useful in uncovering and addressing usability, aesthetics, and trust issues that arise from incorporating a socially-interactive system within a dressing room context.

Kaziunas, Elizabeth, Sawyer, Steve and Oesterlund, Carsten (2011): Social scientists, documents and cyberinfrastructure: the cobbler's children or the missing masses?. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 166-173. Available online

A limited understanding of the distributed work practices of social scientists impedes current efforts to develop cyberinfrastructure (CI) that meets the needs of these scholars. In this paper we review literature on the theory, organization, collaborative practices, and epistemic cultures of the social sciences to summarize fundamental characteristics about the nature of their work practices. Building off these insights, we advance a document-centered articulation of social scientists' distributed work practices derived from a pilot study of scholars in the field of information studies. We use a mixed-methodological approach involving the mapping of digital and physical documents, automated tracking of desktop and online repositories, participant-generated images of physical documents and desktop, behavioral queries, along with interviews and participant observation. Our findings suggest that an approach focused on documents offers a tangible entree into understanding the distributed work practices of social scientists. This study aims to help further discussion surrounding the uptake of CI in the social sciences and the role of academic disciplines in the design of CI tools and projects.
