SPECIAL ISSUE: Modelling user experience - An agenda for research and practice
Edited by Effie Lai-Chong Law and Paul van Schaik

I am pleased to announce a Special Issue of the interdisciplinary journal, Interacting with Computers, on the topic of Measurement and Structural Models of User Experience, edited by Dr. Effie Lai-Chong Law and Professor Dr. Paul van Schaik.

The Special Issue is introduced with an overview article by the two editors presenting an agenda for Research and Practice. The remaining five papers address different concerns pertaining to UX, including measuring usability as a component of UX, impacts of sonic interactions on gameplay experience, experience narratives for measuring the dynamics of user experience, relationships between psychological needs and positive experience, and analysis of user-engagement in online shopping.

Although 'user experience' (UX) has become a fashionable term in human-computer interaction over the past 15 years, practical applications of this (multidimensional) concept still need to be further developed.Measurement models are essential to allow the UX concept to be measured accurately and to aid in activities such as the evaluation of interactive computer systems. Structural models of UX are needed to establish the structural relations both between components and the characteristics of users and computer systems in order to better inform the design of interactive computer systems. Some of the questions addressed in theSpecial Issue include the following. What is the relationship between usability and UX? To what extent and how can attributes of UX be measured? What is the role of and relationship between subjective and objective measures? What are the levels of analysis involved in studying UX? What is the role of time in UX modelling? What is the psychological basis of UX, in terms of motivation and fulfilling psychological needs? What are the practical implications of UX modelling?
