Abstract:For the past three decades, computers have been dominating the way many people create, manage, and use information. Subsequently, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) became an essential area of Information Studies. Due to its interdisciplinary nature, HCI has been defined loosely by what its constituting fields, such as Information Studies, Computer Science and Psychology, perceive as HCI research. A broader view of HCI remains unclear. One way to formulate such a broad view is to examine how scientific journals that represent a wide range of disciplines portray HCI. One comprehensive and prestigious scientific community that mentions the term "human-computer-interaction" as a field of study in its published body of articles is the Nature publications and journals. Through multiple rounds of screening, we identified 53 relevant publications across the Nature database and analyzed these articles using the Qualitative Analysis of Content method. The preliminary results show an exponential increase in the use of the term "human-computer-interaction" over the past six years in Nature publications. Our results also suggest that the scientific community represented in Nature views HCI as an independent field of research.
