The growth of online communities has resulted in an increased availability of user-generated content (UGC). Given the varied sources of UGC, the quality of information it provides is a growing challenge. While many aspects of UGC have been studied, the role of data structures in gathering UGC and nature of to-be-shared content has yet to receive at...

Background and objective: To exchange patient health information using Health Information Exchange (HIE) projects, such information first should be collected thoroughly using an appropriate data entry interface that reinforces information quality (IQ). Assessment of the given data interface based on its structure level may give us a better underst...

As crowdsourced user-generated content becomes an important source of data for organizations, a pressing question is how to ensure that data contributed by ordinary people outside of traditional organizational boundaries is of suitable quality to be useful for both known and unanticipated purposes. This research examines the impact of different inf...

Research on participatory design (PD) dates back to the 1970s, and has focused historically on internal organization settings. Recently, the proliferation of content-producing technologies such as social media and crowdsourcing has led to the explosion of user-generated content (UGC) that originates outside of organizations. Participative challenge...
Conference Paper

Traditionally, information systems were designed to collect data in a structured format [1]. Structured format provides consistent data for data consumers. The explosive growth of social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter), however, consistently demonstrates the advantages of a different approach to data collection and storage. On social media, people...

Conceptual modeling specifies the kinds of objects to be represented in an information system (IS). It involves documenting knowledge about a domain, defining its scope, and outlining constraints: making it a key element of IS. Conceptual models typically represent classes (categories, kinds) of objects rather than concrete specific individuals. Cl...

The rapid proliferation of social media and social networks (e., forums and discussion boards, blogs, amateur websites gives rise to user-generated content (UGC). Organizations are increasingly attracted to UGC as it gives them unique and timely insight into customers and markets. In health care, UGC promises to improve quality of care, for example...

Research on participatory design (PD) dates back to the 1970s, and has focused historically on internal organization settings. Recently, the proliferation of content-producing technologies such as social media and crowdsourcing has led to the explosion of user-generated content (UGC) that originates outside of organizations. Participative challenges in UGC differ from those in traditional organizational, as well as other distributed multi-user, settings; e.g.; open source software, multi-party systems. UGC is an interesting emerging domain and exploring PD in this context may contribute to knowledge and practices in PD itself.

User-generated content (UGC) is becoming a valuable organizational resource, as it is seen in many cases as a way to make more information available for analysis. To make effective use of UGC, it is necessary to understand information quality (IQ) in this setting.
