Solutions using Augmented Reality (AR) have been explored in recent times to address scenarios of remote collaboration in which team members are physically distributed. The literature illustrates that various user studies have been conducted to handle multiple types of tasks through the use of distinct AR methods and hardware. Regardless, given the novelty of this field, other important topics that may impact the collaborative process, and in turn, the insights collected have not been properly considered. This work discusses the impact of gender and technological expertise in remote AR user studies. A set of insights based on previous work are described. With this, we aim to raise awareness of the research community to these key aspects, and improve how the outcomes of the user studies are reported moving forward.
