Leonard Michels et al. publish article on Digital Nudging in the European Journal of Information Systems

We are proud to announce that the research paper, "Salience, transparency, and self-nudging: a digital nudge to promote healthier food product choices", has recently been published in the European Journal of Information Systems.


We congratulate our Alumnus Leonard Michels to this great publication which is a nice culmination for his PhD journey! We are also thankful for the fruitful collaboration with the co-authors Jessica Ochmann, Kathrin Schmitt, Sven Laumer and Verena Tiefenbeck


The paper combines multiple influential research streams on the effects of different salience aspects (i.e., perceptual and attribute salience) to develop a digital nudge that supports consumers in making healthier food product choices. In addition, it focuses on the ethics of digital nudging by investigating how transparently disclosing the nudge and offering it as a self-nudge affect its behavioral effects.
