As of January 2018, the Journal of Human-Robot Interaction (JHRI) has become an
ACM publication and has been rebranded as the ACM Transactions on Human-Robot
Founded in 2012, the Journal of HRI has been serving as the
premier peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal in the field.
Since that time, the human-robot interaction field has
experienced substantial growth. Research findings at the
intersection of robotics, human-computer interaction,
artificial intelligence, haptics, and natural language
processing have been responsible for important discoveries
and breakthrough technologies across many industries.
THRI now joins the ACM portfolio of highly respected
journals. It will continue to be open access, fostering the
widest possible readership of HRI research and information.
All issues will be available in the ACM Digital Library.
Co-Editors-in-Chief Odest Chadwicke Jenkins of the University of Michigan and Selma
Šabanović of Indiana University plan to expand the scope of the publication, adding
a new section on mechanical HRI to the existing sections on computational, social/
behavioral, and design-related scholarship in HRI.
The inaugural issue of the rebranded ACM Transactions on Human-Robot Interaction is
planned for May 2018.
