Dinev, Tamara and Hart, Paul (2004): Internet privacy concerns and their antecedents-measurement validity and a regression model. In Behaviour and Information Technology, 23 (6) pp. 413-422. Available online

This research focuses on the development and validation of an instrument to measure the privacy concerns of individuals who use the Internet and two antecedents, perceived vulnerability and perceived ability to control information. The results of exploratory factor analysis support the validity of the measures developed. In addition, the regression analysis results of a model including the three constructs provide strong support for the relationship between perceived vulnerability and privacy concerns, but only moderate support for the relationship between perceived ability to control information and privacy concerns. The latter unexpected results suggest that the relationship among the hypothesized antecedents and privacy concerns may be one that is more complex than is captured in the hypothesized model, in light of the strong theoretical justification for the role of information control in the extant literature on information privacy.

Hart, Paul and Estrin, Deborah (1991): Inter-Organization Networks, Computer Integration, and Shifts in Interdependence: The Case of the Semiconductor Industry. In ACM Transactions on Information Systems, 9 (4) pp. 370-398. Available online

Inter-organization computer networks (IONs) provide significant opportunities for improving coordination between firms engaged in mutually dependent activities. A field study of the use and impact of IONs in the semiconductor industry is presented in this paper. Eighty-two interviews were conducted in twelve firms (seven semiconductor producers and five merchant mask shops) providing data on current as well as anticipated ION use. We found that greater efficiencies are possible when IONs are used as substitutes for conventional media. But more effective ION use is achievable when internal computer integration within participating firms is implemented. The implication of this otherwise straightforward observation is that firms using computer networks only as a substitute for conventional methods of exchange will not achieve the degree of inter-organization coordination IONs can support. However, while IONs improve coordination and reduce some production and transaction costs, they simultaneously increase certain costs associated with establishing and maintaining contracts with customers. These costs are new dependencies. Dependencies emerge from using IONs to access computer resources, and information generated by those resources, located in other firms. In this way IONs increase interorganization coordination and vulnerability simultaneously. The long term implication of ION adoption is that their use shifts the nature of interdependence between participating firms.

Hart, Paul and Estrin, Deborah (1990): Computer Integration: A Co-Requirement for Effective Inter-Organization Computer Network Implementation. In: Halasz, Frank (ed.) Proceedings of the 1990 ACM conference on Computer-supported cooperative work October 07 - 10, 1990, Los Angeles, California, United States. pp. 131-142.

Inter-organization computer networks (IONs) provide significant opportunities for improving coordination between firms engaged in mutually dependent activities. This research paper focuses on how IONs affect information processing requirements, and production and transaction costs when they interconnect firms with internally integrated computer systems and when they are used only as substitutes for conventional media. We conclude that significant improvements in inter-organization coordination result when IONs support exchanges between internally integrated firms. However, while IONs reduce production costs, they can simultaneously increase transaction costs including those associated with penetration into another firm's computing resources, and segmentation in the marketplace.

Hart, Paul and Estrin, Deborah (1990): Inter-Organization Computer Networks: Indications of Shifts in Interdependence. In: Lochovsky, Frederick H. and Allen, Robert (eds.) Proceedings of the Conference on Office Information Systems 1990 April 25-27, 1990, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. pp. 79-88.

As firms increasingly adopt inter-organization computer networks (IONs) to improve coordination, researchers must be concerned about the long term impact of IONs on organizational relationships. This paper reports on an exploratory study of the use of IONs in design and manufacturing activities in the semiconductor industry. We identify the potential interactions between firms that can be facilitated by IONs, and focus on the implications for customer and producer interdependence. Our analysis suggests that the long term impacts of IONs are not technologically determined, and that their use ought to be regarded differently than those of other media.
