Abstract

An introduction to the special issue of the International Journal of Human-Computer Studies, which focuses on the perspectives on participation of the beginnings, middles and endings of participatory research in HCI, is presented. The HCI research community is increasingly engaging in participatory research that involves citizens, community members, multiple institutions, organizations and interested parties across the entire lifespan of projects. Participatory design projects also include the potential for integrating multiple voices and the challenge of aligning interested parties in design. The special issue includes discussions on reflexivity and reflection during the process of conducting participatory research in HCI.
