Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

  • Exploring the Driving Forces Behind Healthcare Provider Adoption of E-Health Technology   Order a copy of this article
    by Abhishek Dondapati, Vaneeta Aggarwal 
    Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the factors influencing the adoption of E- health technology in India. The study employed a descriptive survey design and structured questionnaires to evaluate the impact of individual, clinical, and organizational factors on adopting the proposed system. The study underscores the importance of intrinsic motivation factors in influencing physicians to adopt and sustain EHT systems. Moreover, the study highlights the critical role of accessibility of medical records, healthcare provider-patient relationship, and patient accessibility in disseminating EHT. The study's theoretical model expands our understanding of how individuals make decisions and accept technology, emphasizing the relevance of personal factors such as self-efficacy, personal innovativeness, and compatibility. The practical implications of this study are that managers must prioritize improving individual, clinical, and organizational aspects of e-health to facilitate adopting the system.

  • The Sensory Approaches on Improving Gross Motor Skills in Children with autism spectrum disorder: A Systematic Review.   Order a copy of this article
    by ZIming Li, Saiful Hasley, Muhammad Hibatullah Romli, Ma Qinqiu, Raja Ahmad Azmeer Raja Ahmad Effendi, Putri Suhaiza, Qingqing Chu, Beli Wang, Xia Yingqiao 
    Abstract: Many children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have considerable difficulty with gross motor skills. However, the effects of sensory approaches on improving gross motor behaviours in children with ASD from an academic standpoint are still unclear. This review offers a complete investigation of empirical papers on sensory methods, notably those on sensory integration therapys gross motor skill benefits. A search on medical databases namely Academic Search Complete, Medline Complete, CINAHL, Scopus and PubMed was conducted to identify articles related to sensory in children with ASD. Using PRISMA, a total of 18 articles from 718 articles were selected for the final analytic procedure. After the screening, sorting and organising of the data using thematic analysis, conclusions were derived that were further analysed. Tactile and vestibular sensory techniques improve gross motor abilities, according to the findings. This review supports sensory techniques to increase gross motor skills in ASD children theoretically.
