We develop an information quality model based on a user-centric view adapted from Financial Accounting Standards Board1, Wang et al.2, and Wang and Strong3. [...] Key Method We present our model as an evidential network under the belief-function framework to permit user assessment of quality parameters. Two algorithms for combining assessments into an overall IQ measure are explored, and examples in the domain of medical information are used to illustrate key concepts. We discuss two scenarios, ‘online-user…Expand

Topics from this paper

Empirical Validation of the Structure of an Information Quality Model
TLDR
This study empirically validates the structure of an information quality model with partial least squares applied to data from professionals who process patient claims information for health care providers, and raises questions about the ability of importance ratings to adequately identify information attributes that explain information quality perceptions. Expand
Knowledge quality
TLDR
There is an evident lack of research in measuring KQ based on a definite conceptual understanding of the hierarchical structure of knowledge, and repeated use of the DQ and IQ dimensions to measure KQ has failed to develop a reliable KQ measure. Expand
Knowledge quality
This paper presents the theoretical underpinnings and measures employed in the assessment of knowledge quality. It aims to identify a conceptual and operational measure of knowledge quality withinExpand
The combined conceptual life-cycle model of information quality: part 1, an investigative framework
  • S. Knight
  • Computer Science
  • Int. J. Inf. Qual.
  • 2011
TLDR
The combined conceptual life cycle (CC/LC) model of IQ is presented, a framework which enables researchers to develop a more accurate research lens through which to examine user/information interaction and perceptions of IQ. Expand
A utility-based model to define the optimal data quality level in IT service offerings
TLDR
The paper presents a utility-based model of the providers’ and customers’ interests developed on the basis of multi-class offerings that is exploited to analyze the optimal service offerings that allow the efficient allocation of quality improvements activities for the provider. Expand
Contextual information quality assessment methodology in data processing using the manufacturing of information approach
TLDR
The main results suggest that a novel data representation allows data to be classified by type (indispensable or verification) and composition (simple or composite) and suggests that data quantity is not directly correlated to IQ, as IQ may increase in the absence of a corresponding increase in data quantity. Expand
Extending the Concept of Quality in Systems Development — Integrating Software and Information Quality
The usefulness and value of an information system is directly related to its perceived quality. Quality is multidimensional concept, and includes an object of interest, the viewpoint on that objectExpand
Empirical Refinement of a Semiotic Information Quality Framework
  • Rosanne J. Price, G. Shanks
  • Computer Science
  • Proceedings of the 38th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
  • 2005
TLDR
This paper presents the refinement of a semiotic information quality framework based on the analysis of practitioner and academic focus group feedback, designed to address problems observed in other proposed quality schemes with respect to scope and inconsistency. Expand
The combined conceptual life cycle model of information quality in user perceptions of IQ on the web
TLDR
By conceptualising user perceptions of IQ in terms of the information life cycle, the model is able to demonstrate how users perceptions are able to legitimately vary depending on individual differences between users and information contexts. Expand
Information Quality and Trustworthiness: A Topical State−of−the−Art Review
The importance and value of information cannot be disputed. It is used as basis for menial and mission-critical tasks alike. In a society where information is so easily publicised and freelyExpand
