    ABSTRACT: Purpose – This paper aims to report on an investigation into ways in which end-users perceived citation database interfaces, especially citation database interfaces' usability. Design/methodology/approach – The investigation used the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) constructs of usefulness and ease of use to assess acceptance of citation database interfaces by university graduate students. A structural equation model was used to fit and validate the Citation Database Interface Acceptance Model (CDIAM). Findings – Causal relationships between the constructs considered by the CDIAM were well supported, accounting for 95 per cent of total variance in citation database interface acceptance and usage. The study concluded that perceived usefulness, and not ease of use of citation database interface, is a key determinant of their acceptance and usage. The results of the construct measurement for perceived usefulness and ease of use in this research are quite consistent with the results reported in recent research. Originality/value – Study findings may help to evaluate human-computer interaction using the MIS-proven TAM and improve usability of the citation database system.

    ABSTRACT: This study seeks to report an investigation into the ways in which end-users perceived citation database interfaces (CDI). The investigation uses the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) constructs of usefulness and ease of use to assess acceptance of citation database interfaces by university graduate students. A structural equation model was used to fit and validate the Citation Database Interface Acceptance Model (CDIAM) and the results indicate good fit to the data. The causal relationships between the constructs considered by the CDIAM are well supported, accounting for 95% of the total variance in the citation database interface acceptance and usage. This study concluded that usefulness and ease of use for citation database interface are proved to be key determinants of the acceptance and usage of citation database. This study may help explain human-computer interaction using MIS-proven TAM instead of traditional system usability approach.

    ABSTRACT: The raison d’eˆtre of this article is that many a spry-eyed analyst of the works in intelligent computing and robotics fail to see the essential concerning applications development, that of expressing their ultimate goal. Alternatively, they fail to state it suitably for the lesser-informed public eye. The author does not claim to be able to remedy this. Instead, the visionary investigation offered couples learning and computing with other related fields as part of a larger spectre to fully simulate people in their embodied image. For the first time, the social roles attributed to the technical objects produced are questioned, and so with a humorous illustration.
