Research Publication: “One app to trace them all? Examining app specifications for mass acceptance of contact-tracing apps” (EJIS)

Our article,  “One app to trace them all? Examining app specifications for mass acceptance of contact-tracing apps” has been published in the European Journal of Information Systems. 

In this study, we investigate how COVID-19 tracing apps need to be specified to facilitate mass acceptance across heterogeneous parts of the population.

Thanks to my co-authors Simon Trang, Manuel Trenz, Welf Weiger, and Monideepa Tarafdar.
