Abstract : Literature from diverse disciplines pertinent to the human performance aspects of small screen displays was examined. In particular, four subtopics were focused on. They include: display size, defined as number of characters per number of lines; protocols, defined as ways users interact with a system to achieve their goals; abbreviations; and vocabulary. The results indicate the lack of specific research on small screen displays but also indicate a trend in current research interest and towards interest in the near future. The report points out other research trends and voids and contains an annotated bibliography of more than 100 source documents. (Author)
