In January 2018, the Journal of Human-Robot Interaction (JHRI) became an ACM publication and has been rebranded as the ACM Transactions on Human-Robot Interaction (THRI). 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.
Founded in 2012, JHRI 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.
ACM THRI aims to be the leading peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal of human-robot interaction. Publication preference is given to articles that contribute to the state of the art or advance general knowledge, have broad interest, and are written to be intelligible to a wide range of audiences. Submitted articles must achieve a high standard of scholarship. Accepted papers must be well-presented and: (1) advance understanding in the field of human-robot interaction, (2) add state-of-the-art or general information to this field, or (3) challenge existing understandings in this area of research.
ACM THRI encourages submission of well-written papers from all fields, including robotics, computer science, engineering, design, and the behavioral and social sciences. Published scholarly papers can address topics including how people interact with robots and robotic technologies, how to improve these interactions and make new kinds of interaction possible, and the effects of such interactions on organizations or society. The editors are also interested in receiving proposals for special issues on particular technical problems or that leverage research in HRI to advance other areas such as social computing, consumer behavior, health, and education.
All papers published in ACM Transactions on Human-Robot Interaction (THRI) will be published as Gold Open Access (OA) and will be free to read and share via the ACM Digital Library. For an initial three-year period (2018-2020), THRI authors will not be asked to pay an Article Processing Charge (APC) to underwrite the cost of OA publication, as these costs will be underwritten by ACM. Beginning in 2021, THRI authors will be asked to pay a reasonable APC to ensure the long term financial sustainability of the journal's publication and archiving in the ACM Digital Library.
Co-Editors-in-Chief Odest Chadwicke Jenkins of the University of Michigan and Selma Šabanovic 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 Spring 2018.

Since 2012, the ACM Transactions on Human-Robot Interaction (THRI) has been serving as the premier peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal in the field. THRI was founded by Sara Kiesler and Michael Goodrich, and originally named the Journal of Human-Robot Interaction. 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. In 2017, the journal joined the Association of Computing Machinery and became THRI to continue and sustain its growth.
