Some of the publications from the Cultural Usability project are available here.

Publication strategy
Results will be sought published in high level international HCI journals such as Interacting with Computers, Behaviour & Information Technology, and International Journal of Human Computer Studies. Publication in psychology journals such as Journal of Applied Psychology will be considered in relation to the specific findings of the project.

An edited book on Cultural Usability will be the target outcome of the conference held at the end of the project.

The project will also publish conference papers for appropriate conferences such as the annual Danish HCI research Symposium, The INDIA HCI conferences, and HCI International 2007 in Beijing.
