  • In this article, we introduce the notion of “Sense of Virtual Place” (SOVP) and explore the factors affecting it. We argue that SOVP can act as a surrogate for user engagement in virtual environments. We develop and validate a SOVP measure, adapting from a widely used measure of Sense of Place (SOP) in the academic disciplines of environmental and social psychology.
