Unfortunely the search for diffusions theory of innovations over the Google did not work was i supose, so i went back to the YORK page to get some help but.. no so mutch was i thought, only found two references related with diffusion of innovations:
DOI or Diffusion of innovations theory
Social shaping of technology
Technology-organization-environment framework

It is important in my case do analyse different models that explain de innovation diffusion, besides Rogers models i must read about others or simples expansions of Rogers proposal.

The map is a diagrammatic representation of the 28 core papers comprising the front in Economics & Business.


Each circle represents a highly cited paper whose bibliographic information is displayed when the user clicks on the circle. The lines between circles represent the strongest co-citation links for each paper (that is, indicating that the papers are frequently cited together). Papers close to each other on the map are generally more highly co-cited. The most recent paper(s) are indicated in pink. Annotations may have been added to this map which represent the main research themes. These appear as labels attached to specific regions on the maps.

i would like to have access to this article! yes i do!

title:Learning new uses of technology while on an audit engagement: Contextualizing general models to advance pragmatic understanding

abstract:“While most technology acceptance studies focus on initial adoption and use, an emerging stream of literature focuses on post-adoption behavior (Jasperson et al., 2005). This study adds to that stream by conceptualizing a model of the post-adoption process based upon the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) (Venkatesh et al., 2003) and refined based upon work in effort expectancy and social influence (Loraas and Diaz, 2009; Schepers and Wetzels, 2007). The general model is then stylized to the auditing context and an experiment is conducted to test the efficacy of the proposed model. Inline with expectations, effort expectancy influences how an intern auditor thinks about learning a new feature of a technology. Specifically, when the technology is deemed difficult to learn, attitude, anticipatory affect, time budget pressure and social influence are important. However, when technology is easy to learn only self-efficacy and negative anticipated affect are enacted.”

Update (01/09/2009): i would like to thanks to the Professor Michelle Diaz for the access to the article 🙂

Se avançar com este processo (PHD) vou ter que comprar este livro, já me cansa está a ler o que os outros leram no livro dele.. bah!
Translation: It is very important for me to buy this book, i don’t have access and I can’t buy it now because i don’t have the time to wait for the arrival, but if i have success with the acceptant of the proposal I’m going to buy it for sure! I need it!
