Towards Interactive IS Research Papers to Play With - A Process Mining Showcase

Becker Jörg, Bergener Philipp, Breuker Dominic, Heide Tobias

The paper explores how reading experience of scientific publications can be improved through interactive web content. Constructivist learning theories advertise active involvement of learners as a key requirement for successful teaching. Analogously, we argue that active involvement of readers can facilitate the process of conveying scientific research to other scholars. Today’s web technologies provide plenty of opportunities to generate interactive content. However, almost no attempts to explore these opportunities have been undertaken so far. Step by step, we discuss learning theory to demonstrate the importance of actively involving the reader. Then, we show how interactive web technology and visual media can be used to realize this involvement. By subsequently showcasing an original research result from the area of business process mining in an interactive fashion, we invite the reader to experience himself what an interactive research papers can look like. Furthermore, brief sketches of technical realization are included.
