Towards a Model for Research Portal Acceptance and Usage

Becker Jörg, Heide Tobias, Steinhorst Matthias


Zusammenfassung
Research portals have been suggested as both a knowledge management tool and a collaboration technology for research communities. This paper proposes a research model designed to understand the acceptance und usage of such portals. The model is based on UTAUT which we augment to include research portal-specific technology, individual and situational characteristics. Our model incorporates theories originating from the fields of knowledge management and collaboration technology. This paper thus answers the call for developing more technology-specific acceptance theories. It contributes to both research and practice, because it represents a first step towards developing research portals that are more widely used than they currently are.
