    • Feb 2020 UTA Faculty Research
      Jennifer Zhang, a UTA professor in the College of Business’ Department of Information Systems and Operations Management, helped develop a machine-learning program that evaluates viewers’ emotions toward certain pictures on crowdfunding websites.
    • June 2016 The New Yorker
      Reviews tend to be asymmetrically bimodal; they form a J-shaped distribution, with many high ratings, a smaller number of low ratings, and not much in between. The higher number of high ratings may reflect “positivity bias.” Studies show that if the first review is a rave subsequent reviews are more likely to be positive. If you are selling a product online, it makes all the sense in the world for you to have a friend post a positive review the instant the page goes up. We can often tell—shopping for books on Amazon, for example—when someone has taken this wise precaution.
    • Sept 2012
      Strategy+Business.com
      Jie Zhang, a UT Arlington assistant professor of information systems and operations management, co-authored a study on online retailers and shipping fees, Strategy+Business.com reported. Internet retailers strategically manipulate their base and shipping prices, as well as delivery options they offer to customers, to maximize profits and gain a competitive advantage, the paper finds.
    • June 2007 Salon Magazine
      three information systems analysts, Nan Hu, Paul Pavlou and Jennifer Zhang, studied the ratings of 230,000 books, almost 300,000 DVDs and 60,000 videos for sale at the site. The average in each category was over four stars -- which makes sense only if you believe Hollywood is making mostly great movies. When the researchers mapped the reviews on a graph, they found J-shaped curves -- there were a lot of one-star ratings, very few twos and threes, a whole lot of fours, and a king's ransom of fives.
