Dear Colleagues,

This special issue of the Informatics journal welcomes submissions on the topic of human-information interaction (HII). HII is concerned with how and why humans use, find, consume, work with, and interact with information to solve problems, make decisions, learn, plan, make sense, discover, and carry out numerous other tasks and activities. Although tools and technologies mediate interaction with information, the focus of HII research is not on technological issues per se. HII focuses on the interaction between humans and information that is mediated and supported by interactive technologies in the areas of decision support, health and medicine, education, libraries, personal-information management, natural and social science, and others. HII is inherently interdisciplinary, and draws from research in human-computer interaction, information science, cognitive and perceptual sciences, health and medical informatics, information visualization, educational technologies, library science, and information systems. We encourage authors to submit their original research articles, work in progress, surveys, reviews, and viewpoint articles in this field. This special issue welcomes applications, theories, models, and frameworks—whether conceptual, analytical, prescriptive, predictive, design-related, or otherwise—that are concerned with (but not limited to) the following topics as they relate to HII:

  • Interaction Design
  • Distributed Cognition
  • Thinking and Reasoning
  • Visual Reasoning
  • Interactive Cognition
  • Interaction Patterns
  • Sensemaking
  • Complex Cognition
  • Cognitive Activities
  • Information Behavior

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Informatics is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts.
