Psychological effects can influence the active as well as the passive usage behavior of users of (semi-)public displays, and thus can lead to inaccurate results in evaluations. In this paper, we aim to gather the current knowledge about known and relevant effects in the deployment and operation of (semi-)public screens, so that they can be taken into account when designing or evaluating (semi-)public display applications. Additionally, we collect possible approaches to deal with these effects. The objective of this paper is to support the HCI community in understanding and planning the impact of the enumerated effects in future work.
