Along with increasing investments in new technologies, user technology acceptance becomes a frequently studied topic in the information systems discipline. The last two decades have seen user acceptance models being proposed, tested, refined, extended, and unified. These models have contributed to our understanding of user technology acceptance factors and(More)
Identifying causal relationships is an important aspect of scientific inquiry. Causal relationships help us to infer, predict, and plan. This research investigates the causal relationships between two constructs, perceived enjoyment (PE) and perceived ease of use (PEOU), within the nomological net of user technology acceptance. PE has been theorized and(More)
The effects of e-commerce institutional mechanisms on trust and online purchase have traditionally been understood in the initial online purchase context. This study extends this literature by exploring the role of ecommerce institutional mechanisms in the online repurchase context. In doing so, it responds to the emerging call for understanding the(More)
Post-adoptive system use is often characterized by cycles of adaptation, in which people actively revise how they use information systems. This paper investigates how and why individual users revise their system use at the feature level. A new concept, adaptive system use (ASU), is conceptualized as a user’s revisions of which and how system features are(More)
Agarwal and Karahanna (2000) suggested that holistic user experiences with IT contribute to users’ evaluation of and reaction to using the technology. They proposed and empirically tested a construct named cognitive absorption that has preceding effects on important user technology acceptance constructs. We propose that an important antecedent of cognitive(More)
Affect factors have gained researchers’ attention in a number of fields. The Information Systems (IS) literature, however, shows some gaps and inconsistencies regarding the role of affect factors in human–computer interaction. Building upon prior research, this study aims at a better understanding of affect factors by clarifying their relationships with(More)
Information and communication technology (ICT) acceptance and use is a prolific research stream in the information systems field. Yet, studies on attitude have gone through ups and downs yielding inconsistent and inconclusive findings on attitude’s role and impact. In this paper, we provide clear definitions of two different types of attitudes and detail(More)
In the information systems (IS) field, research interest in attitude has fluctuated over the past decades given the inconsistent and inconclusive findings on attitude’s effects on behavioral intention (BI) to use information and communication technology (ICT). This study addresses the conceptual, operational, and temporal dynamics of attitude that may have(More)
