User Experience (UX) Call for Authors- UX 13.3: Theme-Free Issue
(Bloomingdale, IL: February 2013)

Proposals are now being accepted from the UX community for UXPA's UX Magazine for the third quarter of 2013.

UX 13.3 is a theme-free issue, meaning proposals on a wide variety of topics will be accepted. Articles may reflect learnings from one’s own career experiences, a new research method, an overview of an interesting research or design project, or emerging trends in UX. These topics are only suggestions.

The schedule for UX 13.3 is:

  • April 1st, 2013: Article proposals due

  • May 15th, 2013: Final articles due

  • August 2013: Issue published

Please submit an informal proposal (2-3 paragraphs) that lets us understand the main points you want to make in your article, not just the topics you will cover.


Proposals should be sent to:

Aga Bojko: abojko@usercentric.com

Chelsey Glasson: chelsey@udacity.com


User Experience Magazine is a forum for sharing ideas and experiences, not an academic journal. We value conversational language and the emphasis on “real people, real problems, and real solutions.” Our articles are typically between 700 and 2000 words. If you’d like to know more, please take a look at our editorial guidelines.

We look forward to hearing from you!
