Publications

Note on publications: In many areas of Computer Science, including HCI, top ranking conferences are prioritised over journals. Full publications at top ranking conferences, e.g. ACM CHI, are highly competitive and the equivalent to journal publications in other disciplines. Google Scholar provides a ranking of publication venues in HCI, covering journals and conferences. ACM CHI, a conference, is the top ranked publication venue. Meanwhile in relevant fields of social, information and communication science, journal papers and book chapters are highly ranked.
