The adoption and resistance of disruptive information technologies
With technology permeating every part of our life, both personal and at work, the issues related to its adoption have drawn concerns of the users. Technology acceptance studies have provided valuable insights and have been consistently published in various outlets (Lee et al. 2013). The topic has also garnered high citation as evidenced by previous studies. As new technologies are being introduced, it is expected that the adoption and resistance issues will continue to attract user interest. The existing technology acceptance theories are old-fashioned, yet many researchers still apply them to specific contexts (e.g., developing countries, education, and health care areas). These theories may have limitations in explaining the adoption of emerging disruptive information technologies (Sun & Jeyaraj 2013). Thus, if we fill this research gap, researchers will have better opportunities to develop and understand related topics based on the studies that are included in this ebook.
