    Cultural Differences in User Privacy Behavior on Social Networking Sites: An Empirical Study comparing German and Swedish Facebook Users2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social Networking Sites (SNSs), such as Facebook, are becoming increasingly popular. Their worldwide accessibility is attracting billions of SNS users from all over the globe, which results in a variety of different cultures meeting on the respective platforms. Apart from their growing popularity, privacy issues represent a downside of SNSs attracting strong media and research attention. Considering SNS users’ cultural diversity, recent studies show that a culture influences the privacy concerns of its respective members. Only little research investigating cultural differences in User Privacy Behavior (UPB) on SNSs has been carried out so far. Furthermore, the majority of existing studies include the United States (US) when comparing different cultures. Taking the fact into account that, for instance, more than three-fourths of all Facebook users are outside the US and Canada, this study builds on the current state of research by comparing the UPB of Ger-man and Swedish Facebook users based on their different cultural characterization. In this context, two of Hofstede’s (1980) cultural dimensions, Masculinity and Uncertainty Avoidance, serve as a foundation for the creation of hypotheses and the development of the research model. The chosen research approach had a quantitative design and was conducted as a web-survey. The sample consisted of 791 valid respondents (667 German college students and 124 Swedish college students). The findings reveal several significant differences between German and Swedish SNS users. According to that, Swedes, as mem-bers of a low masculinity culture, have more SNS friends and a greater amount of strangers within these friends, compared to Germans, as members of a culture character-ized by a higher masculinity. As a result of their comparatively low uncertainty avoidance, Swedish SNS users have more trust in both SNS providers and other SNS members than Germans, characterized by a higher uncertainty avoidance. On the other hand, Germans reveal higher privacy concerns and disclose themselves to a lower extent than Swedes. Besides, Swedish SNS users perceive the provided control over personal information on SNSs as sufficient, while Germans indicate a need for more control. Moreover, Germans apply the provided control settings to a greater extent than Swedes. The results provide relevant insights for SNS providers and help them in adapting their services in consider-ation of the respective cultural attitudes in terms of UPB.

    A framework for strict structured literature reviews within management research and management education: establishing a model for evidence-based management and increased scholarly interactionManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the last decade, the systematic literature review has extended to management research and management education. The purpose of this paper is to present an alternative method named Strict Structured Literature Review (SSLR), to provide a robust selection of articles for starting a longitudinal study or as a fast reliable and transparent method reviewing literature for shorter work under a time-limit, for example research projects or educational assignments. A properly executed Strict Structured Literature Review will lead to the desirable outcome of connecting researchers, or students, with practitioners and create conditions for evidence-based management based on already existing research results. Using a Strict Structured Literature Review would create a publishing strategy where research funders return on investments (ROI) can be met through increased implementation of earlier research results in organizational decision making as well as extended scholarly communication. This is completely in line with the movement towards open science. At the same time, the method for Strict Structured Literature Review fosters a development within management education towards evidence-based management and scholarly interaction.

    Abstract [sv]

    De senaste 20 åren har mycket hänt som har kommit att påverka högskolebibliotekens pedagogiska förhållningssätt i grunden. Dessa intensiva decennier har inkluderat internets intåg, övergång till digitala publiceringsformer, Googles etablering som sökmotor samt utvecklingen av en rad kraftfulla verktyg för informationssökning. Det har fått till följd att en instruktionsbaserad undervisning av ett fåtal tillgängliga källor har ersatts av en kontextstyrd metodundervisning där reflektion och kritisk värdering har blivit mer centralt än demonstration av sökteknik och enstaka källor. Förändringen har även inneburit ett skifte av fokus från bibliotekarien som kunskapsspridare till studenten som informationsinhämtare tillika ansvarig för sitt eget livslånga lärande.

    A tale of two 'opens': intersections between Free and Open Source Software and Open ScholarshipManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    There is no clear-cut boundary between Free and Open Source Software and Open Scholarship, and the histories, practices, and fundamental principles between the two remain complex. In this study, we critically appraise the intersections and differences between the two movements. Based on our thematic comparison here, we conclude several key things. First, there is substantial scope for new communities of practice to form within scholarly communities that place sharing and collaboration/open participation at their focus. Second, Both the principles and practices of FOSS can be more deeply ingrained within scholarship, asserting a balance between pragmatism and social ideology. Third, at the present, Open Scholarship risks being subverted and compromised by commercial players. Fourth, the shift and acceleration towards a system of Open Scholarship will be greatly enhanced by a concurrent shift in recognising a broader range of practices and outputs beyond traditional peer review and research articles. In order to achieve this, we propose the formulation of a new type of institutional mandate. We believe that there is substantial need for research funders to invest in sustainable open scholarly infrastructure, and the communities that support them, to avoid the capture and enclosure of key research services that would prevent optimal researcher behaviours. Such a shift could ultimately lead to a healthier scientific culture, and a system where competition is replaced by collaboration, resources (including time and people) are shared and acknowledged more efficiently, and the research becomes inherently more rigorous, verified, and reproducible.

    Understanding the adoption of third-party online payment: An empirical study of user acceptance of Alipay in China2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    With the development of online shopping, the number of third-party online payment systems increases. Alipay is a commonly used third-party online payment system among Chinese consumers. The purpose of this study was to explore the factors that affect the users’ acceptance of Alipay among Chinese B2C customers. This study adopts a deductive, theory testing approach. Based on the model of Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT), a research model and hypotheses were proposed. A survey study was performed with a quota sample of 300 Chinese online shopping consumers. Based on the responses, the hypotheses were tested through statistical analysis. Through testing the hypotheses, it was concluded that: “Social Influence”, “Effort expectancy” were the factors that most prominently could affect B2C user’s acceptance of Alipay. Hence, third-party online systems suppliers should focus on social marketing and increasing the ease of use of the systems to increase user acceptance. Other similar third-party online payment company could take those identified factors as reference in further user acceptance study, and the proposed research model in this study could also help in improving understanding of user acceptance in similar third-part online payment system.

    Building a university library web site for Victor - an example of the personas method2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes the development of a new university library website, incorporating the innovative ‘personas’ method. Personas are the qualitative aspects of users – their motivations, constraints, needs etc. These were established by depth interviews. A set of ‘personas’ was created, which assisted the planning of the optimum layout, prioritising library asset visibility and generally meeting information needs. A site usability evaluation was also undertaken of the resulting interface. The study made the team much more aware of user needs and behaviour, and how site design can play a crucial role in service provision. The persona method turned out to be a valuable tool in creating a site catering for the widest possible spectrum of users.

    "I'm center stage!": A study of service offerings from a consumer's point of view2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to learn more about the consumers' interaction with companies over different channels. It is conducted from a consumer's point of view, but the insights gained through this study will help companies to design and build better services. In this context, the concepts of User Experience, cross-channel and Customer Experience provide a theoretical framework. The new approach in this study is to combine the three concepts, their framing and their identified design elements. This conceptual framing contains a list of design elements with a positive influence on the service experience.

    However, the conceptual framing provides no answers on how to apply these design elements. In the methodology part, possible approaches are discussed. The heuristic evaluation used in the two case studies is a method that takes all three concepts from the theoretical framework into account. With the first heuristic, it is possible to analyze single touchpoints like User Experience demands. The following heuristics are used within a cross-channel context. Finally, the last heuristic is responsible for the holistic perspective from Customer Experience.

    The case studies are then conducted to verify the applicability of the design elements with the heuristic evaluation. The findings of the study were positive and suggest that the heuristic evaluation is a suitable method to analyze a company's service offerings. Additionally, the case studies lead to results which are useful for the two companies (Migros and Nestlé). The overall conclusion of this study is that the three concepts complement each other very well. User Experience is responsible for well designed touchpoints. Cross-channel expands the perspective on ecosystems and evaluates how the touchpoints operate together. Finally, Customer Experience analyzes the whole company and its touchpoints on a heuristic perspective.

    Digital Archives: Where is the community in history?2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of digitizing cultural heritage collections is often presented in terms of preservation or distribution. Concerns center around how to best ensure the sustainability of materials or how to enable user interactivity. However, especially within the field of history, there is a push to think in terms of how to create community through the narratives the authors produce. The authors orientation is shifting from author-centered to reader-centered, and how the authors construct knowledge is becoming increasingly social and democratic. This can be explained as part of a greater cultural shift where, "until recently, public memory was constructed and disseminated for the people but not by the people" (Haskins, 2007, p. 408).

    This presentation explores such issues through the examination of three digital archives: 1) The Valley of the Shadow: Two Communities in the American Civil War site (http://valley.lib.virginia.edu/). 2) The Virtual Vietnam Archive (http://911digitalarchive.org). After a brief description of each project, a critique is provided covering the four aspects of: motives, preservation, interactivity and barriers.

    While all three digital archives place a focus on personal narratives and deal with the complexities of conflict intimately, none of the projects manage to create the vibrant virtual community one might hope for or expect. This discovery indicates that there is more discussion needed about what purposes digital history resources might serve.

    Health sciences librarians doing research: Experiences from the first annual RTI cohort2020Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction

    In July 2018, the Medical Library Association (MLA) of the USA held its first annual Research Training Institute (RTI). The RTI is a three-year program funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) created “to provide practicing health sciences librarians with key research competencies related to scholarly research, inquiry, and publishing” (Kloda, Philbrick and Lessick 2019). I had the privilege of being accepted as one of the first RTI fellows.

    Could such an institute be a way to meet the continuing education needs of EAHIL members as well?

    Aim

    To inform EAHIL members about professional developments within the USA by sharing my personal experience of the RTI.

    Method

    During my presentation, I will present an introduction to the RTI, give an overview of the cohorts’ current research projects, and share personal insights as to how this type of program might benefit EAHIL members.

    How can we help? Information literacies of doctoral (PhD) students in the health sciences2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    INTRODUCTION

    Doctoral studies offer a unique phase in the development and legitimization of researchers, in which PhD students shift from the consumption to the production of knowledge. If librarians are to support this process in an evidence-based manner, it is essential to understand the distinct practices of this population. While literature exists concerning the information behavior of graduate students and researchers, there is little work which focuses specifically on the information literacies of PhD students within the health sciences.

    AIM

    The aim of this project was: 1) to establish the depth and breadth of evidence describing the information literacies of PhD students within the health sciences, and 2) to explore how Jönköping University Library can support the PhD students and their supervisors at the Research School of Health and Welfare.

    METHOD

    The project aims suggested a mixed method approach. In order to examine the concept of information literacies among PhD students, a scoping review was performed [1]. General trends within the literature were mapped based on the extraction of the following data: geographic location, population, academic discipline, and method of investigation. To better understand the information practices at our health sciences research school, we interviewed both PhD students and their supervisors. These open-ended interviews were conducted and analyzed according to a hermeneutic dialectic process [2], resulting in synthesized constructions of the study participants’ experiences.

    RESULTS

    Our scoping review revealed that many studies fail to treat doctoral studies as a unique process. The result is that PhD students in the health sciences are underrepresented as a distinct group within the recent literature. We are currently performing a critical analysis of the few studies that focus specifically on health science PhD students. Later this year, we expect to present a discussion of these results as well as the findings from interviews at our own health sciences research school.

    CONCLUSION

    This project highlights the need for more primary research on the information literacies of PhD students in the health sciences.

    How can we help? Information literacies of PhD students in the health sciences2020In: Poster sessions, 2020, p. 22-23Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction

    Doctoral studies offer a unique phase in the development and legitimization of researchers, in which PhD students shift from the consumption to the production of knowledge. If librarians are to support this process in an evidence-based manner, it is essential to understand the distinct practices of this population. While literature exists concerning the information behavior of graduate students and researchers, there is little work which focuses specifically on the information literacies of PhD students within the health sciences.

    Aim

    The aim of this project was to explore how Jönköping University Library can support the PhD students and their supervisors at the Research School of Health and Welfare.

    Methods

    Both PhD students and their supervisors were interviewed. The open-ended interviews were conducted and analyzed according to a hermeneutic dialectic process, resulting in synthesized constructions of the study participants’ experiences. A total of twelve interviews were held, resulting in two constructions: one for the PhD students and one for their supervisors.

    Results

    Preliminary findings revealed that PhD students find themselves in a phase of “in-between”, i.e., they are not merely graduate students and not quite recognized as researchers. A common assumption among supervisors was that PhD students already have the information literacy skills they need. Yet, the students self-reported that they often felt uncertain when searching and got “stuck” with one strategy. This difficulty was most prevalent at the beginning of their PhD journey. Responses indicated that the unique competency of research librarians is essential. However, both the PhD students and their supervisors noted that they were often unaware of what services and support the library could provide.

    Discussion

    This project highlights the need for more primary research on the information literacies of PhD students in the health sciences. Implications for health librarianship include the need to encourage collaboration between academic libraries and research schools, resulting in better guidance for researchers in training.

    Information Literacies of PhD Students: A Hermeneutic Dialectic Study within the Health Sciences2022In: New Review of Academic Librarianship, ISSN 1361-4533, E-ISSN 1740-7834, Vol. 28, no 2, p. 172-192Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Doctoral studies offer a unique phase in the development and legitimisation of researchers, in which PhD students shift from consumption to production of knowledge. While literature exists concerning the information behaviour of graduate students and researchers, there is little work which focuses specifically on the information literacies of PhD students within the health sciences. To better understand this user group, we undertook a qualitative study at the Research School of Health and Welfare in Jönköping, Sweden. Twelve open-ended interviews with both PhD students and their supervisors were conducted and analysed according to a hermeneutic dialectic process. Findings revealed that the supervisors commonly assumed that PhD students already have necessary information literacy skills. Yet some of the students self-reported feeling uncertain when searching and getting ‘stuck’ with one strategy. Responses also indicated that the PhD students and their supervisors were often unaware of what services and support the library could provide.

    Information literacies of PhD students in the health sciences: A review of scholarly articles (2009 - 2018)2020In: Evidence Based Library and Information Practice, E-ISSN 1715-720X, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 142-158Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective – Doctoral studies offer a unique phase in the development and legitimization of researchers, in which PhD students shift from the consumption to the production of knowledge. If librarians are to support this process in an evidence based manner, it is essential to understand the distinct practices of this user population. While recent reviews exist concerning the information behaviours of graduate students and researchers, there is little knowledge synthesis focused on the information literacies of PhD students in specific disciplines. The aim of this article is to explore the depth and breadth of recent evidence which describes the information literacies of students pursuing a doctoral degree in the health sciences.

    Methods – Strategic searches were performed in databases, hand-searched key journals, and reference lists. Records were screened independently by both authors based on pre-determined criteria. General trends within the literature were mapped based on the extraction of the following data: geographic location, population, study aims, and method of investigation. Further analysis of the articles included charting the academic disciplines represented, summarizing major findings related to PhD students in health sciences, and which databases indexed the relevant articles.

    Results – Many studies fail to treat doctoral studies as a unique process. PhD students are often grouped together with other graduate students or researchers. Studies tend to be based on small populations, and the number of PhD students involved is either unclear or only equals a few individuals within the entire group of study. In addition, of the limited number of studies which focus exclusively on PhD students, few conduct explicit examination of information practices in the health sciences. The result is that this user group is underrepresented within recent journal publications.

    Conclusion – This review highlights the need for more primary, in-depth research on the information literacies of PhD students in the health sciences. In addition, librarians are encouraged to share their knowledge in scholarly publications which can reach beyond their own professional circles.

    PhD students and information literacy in the health sciences: A scoping review2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction

    In the current socio-cultural climate of “alternative facts”, the need for rigorous research is greater than ever. Doctoral studies offer a unique phase in the development and legitimization of researchers, in which PhD students shift from the consumption to the production of knowledge. If librarians are to support this process in an evidence-based manner, it is essential to understand the distinct practices of this population. While recent literature reviews exist concerning the information practices of graduate students and researchers, there is little knowledge synthesis which focuses solely on the information literacies of PhD students within the health sciences.

    Aim

    The aim of this project was to explore the depth and breadth of evidence which describes the information literacies of students pursing a doctoral degree within the health sciences. Method In order to investigate the research activity concerning PhD students within the health sciences, we performed a scoping review (Arksey & O´Malley, 2005). Relevant literature was identified through strategic searches in databases, handsearched key journals, and reference lists. References were screened independently by both authors based on predetermined inclusion criteria. General trends within the literature were mapped based on the extraction of the following data: geographic location, population, academic discipline, and method of investigation.

    Results

    Many studies fail to treat doctoral studies as a unique process. PhD students are often grouped together with other graduate students or researchers. Studies tend to be based on small populations, and the number of PhD students involved is either unclear or only equals a few individuals within the entire group of study. In addition, of the limited number of studies which focus on PhD students only, few conduct explicit examination of information practices within the health sciences. The result is that PhD students in the health sciences are underrepresented as a distinct group within the recent literature.

    Conclusion

    This review highlights the need for more primary research on the information literacies of PhD students in the health sciences.

    Development and validation of a sensitive MEDLINE search strategy to identify literature relevant to limb prostheses2021In: Prosthetics and Orthotics International, ISSN 0309-3646, E-ISSN 1746-1553, Vol. 45, no 3, p. 289-294Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Researchers and clinicians may find it challenging to identify relevant articles about limb prostheses in online databases. Searches may be improved by using standardized strategies, also known as filters or hedges.

    Objectives: To develop and validate a highly sensitive MEDLINE (EBSCOHost) search strategy for limb prostheses.

    Study Design: Search strategy development/validation.

    Methods: A gold standard (GS) list of peer-reviewed articles on the topic of limb prostheses was created using a relative recall method. This involved identifying and including relevant systematic reviews/meta-analyses and then adding articles that were included in the analysis section of these reviews. Possible terms for the search strategy were identified through brainstorming and exploration of medical subject headings in MEDLINE (MeSH) and standards from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Concepts were grouped using relevant Boolean operators (e.g. AND and OR) and database record search fields (i.e. MeSH terms, title, and abstract). Part of the GS was used to refine the search strategy and reduce the number of records retrieved in total. The remaining GS set was used to validate and calculate sensitivity of the search strategy. Performance of the search strategy was compared against searches using only relevant MeSH terms.

    Results: After screening, the final GS totaled 853 records. The developed search strategy was highly sensitive (99.80%) and performed with higher relative recall than searches with relevant MeSH terms.

    Conclusions: This study provides a highly sensitive search strategy that can be used by clinicians and researchers when searching for relevant literature on limb prostheses in MEDLINE (EBSCOHost).

    Optimizing strategies for literature searching in Prosthetics & Orthotics2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This instructional course is intended for graduate and post-graduate students, as well as those actively involved in research within the Prosthetics and Orthotics field.

    Literature searches are a necessary component of effective research. To identify and access suitable literature, researchers need to understand which databases are most appropriate, how they differ in terms of content and search structure, and how to develop a search strategy which optimizes the proportion of relevant literature sources. Additionally, scholarly journals are increasingly requiring authors to publish utilized search strings to allow duplication of results.

    The choice of terms and syntax used to construct searches within literature databases have a major influence on the outcomes of a literature search. If this process is not conducted correctly, it can result in unnecessary identification of inappropriate sources or unintended omission of appropriate literature. This instructional course will be led by academic P&Os and librarians and will equip participants with the tools to develop an advanced search strategy for a prosthetics and orthotics related topic. In addition, the concept of validated search filters, also known as search hedges, will be introduced. These can be used to efficiently and accurately filter the evergrowing volume of literature. During the course, participants will be provided with a validated search hedge which has been developed by the instructional team to be utilized when conducting a systematic search for literature within the area of limb prosthetics.

    Statement of the objective / learning objectives. Upon completion, the student will:

    Understand the concept of a search hedge

    Make informed decisions about the selection and use of literature databases

    Independently develop a search strategy for a prosthetics and orthotics related topic
