IMC associate professor Arhlene Flowers published an article titled, “Decision-Making Factors in Selecting Virtual Worlds for Events: Advocacy, Computer Efficacy, Perceived Risks, and Collaborative Benefits,” in the December 2012 issue of Event Management, an International Journal, which is a peer-reviewed journal intending to meet the research and analytic needs of a rapidly growing profession focused on events.
