AIS Transactions on Replication Research


“A new concept, adaptive system use (ASU), is conceptualized as a user’s revisions of which and how system features are used.” (Sun, 2012, p. 453). Sun (2012) conceptualized, tested empirically, and validated this new concept for the first time. We conducted a methodological replication of Sun’s (2012) work. We show that his study on ASU can be successfully replicated under similar contextual conditions. While our research is a first step towards understanding ASU in more detail, further replications in the search for new potential moderators and the applicability of ASU in different contextual conditions are necessary. Additional replications further the generalizability of the ASU model and its triggers.
