Friedman test and analytic hierarchy process are used to rank effective factors of ethics-based technology acceptance in small and medium enterprises.
Results: The results of this study indicate that seven factors of individual compatibility, organizational compatibility, perceived usefulness, perceived ease, attitude toward use, intent and intention of use and behavior affect the ethical acceptance of technology. It is also found that the attitudes toward use, and intention, had the most impact on the ethical acceptance of technology.
