Abstract: This study investigated 2008 Fortune global 500 corporate websites with regard to how the corporate websites present environmental information and encourage dialogue with the public through their websites. This study grouped 2008 Fortune global 500 companies by region – North America, Europe, and Asia – and then analyzed what environmental issues they prioritize and how they share global environmental issues (e.g., climate changes) and whether they are any regional environmental issues that each region prioritizing (e.g., air pollution, water conservation, and deforestation). The results showed that European corporate websites are paid more attention to environmental issues, followed by North America and Asia respectively. With regard to environmental issues, most corporate websites place more importance on climate changes and resource/waste management but less importance on ecosystem management, and environmental governance. With regard to dialogic features, corporate websites are not fully employing the dialogic capacity. The results implicate that although corporate websites play a pivot role as an environmental information provider, they still are not fully employing dialogic features of the Internet.

Abstract: When planning and building websites, major gaps often emerge between site owners and site visitors. Conventional user testing has been employed to improve the effectiveness of site structure, content and design. This presentation will address the relationship of conventional user testing of websites to Dervin’s Sense-Making Methodology with the aim of creating websites that are more responsive to human needs.

Abstract: Although website accessibility and usability are highly related concepts, few empirical studies exist which empirically test the correlation between these two constructs. Using an automatic accessibility evaluation tool and a government website usability checklist, this study first evaluated the accessibility and usability of 342 U.S. county government websites, and then examined the relationship between the accessibility and usability of the sites. The results of the partial correlation and one-way ANOVA test indicate that website accessibility and usability are positively correlated, and the websites with better accessibility also have significantly higher usability. The finding of this study suggests that improving website usability benefits not only web users with disabilities but also users without disability.

4. Jewett, Adriane. and Goodman, J.. "Pretty as a Website: Examining Aesthetics on Nonsurgical Cosmetic Procedure Websites" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Hilton Metropole Hotel, London, England, Jun 14, 2013 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-09-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p635336_index.html>

Abstract: Nonsurgical cosmetic procedures have increased 356% from 1997 to 2011 (ASAPS, 2011) and are now one of the fastest growing medical specialties in the U.S. Although these procedures may seem deceptively simple, they harbor serious potential for health complications. Yet, even though the majority of patients report turning to media, particularly websites, as a significant source of procedure information, little scholarly research has been devoted to nonsurgical cosmetic procedure marketing. Because these websites sell beauty, the elaboration likelihood model (ELM) suggests that aesthetics may play a crucial role in swaying potential patients. Sampling from the top 10 cities for nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, this study conducted a content analysis of 285 nonsurgical cosmetic procedure (NCP) websites to examine their use of aesthetics on the homepage and top five procedure pages (Botox, dermal fillers, laser hair removal, laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels). Findings revealed the popularity of graphic elements (particularly a variety of logos), photographs (especially of people), cool and neutral colors and sans serif typefaces. The results also indicated that NCP websites vary their aesthetics based on the page type, with homepages displaying significantly more photos than individual procedure pages. Interestingly, differences were also found based on city ranking. NCP websites from cities ranked 1-5 used more dynamic visuals, logos, cool colors and people photographs, while websites from cities ranked 6-10 used more procedure photographs and warm colors. These findings may indicate the amount of local competition could influence NCP website aesthetics.
