User Experience (UX) Call for Authors- UX 13.4: Collaboration Issue
(Bloomingdale, IL: March 2013)

The theme of User Experience Professionals Association’s UX Magazine for the 3rd quarter of 2013 is Collaboration, to align with this summer’s UXPA conference and World Usability Day. We are now accepting proposals for this issue, and we would love to hear from you!

“Collaboration” is a phenomenon that appears on myriad levels, every day, around the world. How does it impact and contribute to the user experience? Do you have an experience you’d like to share, a relevant case study, or an example of how you’ve employed collaboration to improve the user experience? Articles may come from a broad range of perspectives and include collaboration in different contexts, countries and across domains. Be creative with your submission ideas– we look forward to receiving them!

The issue schedule is:

  • April 29, 2013: Article proposals (short summaries of the key points in your article) due

  • August 12, 2013: Final articles due

  • November 2013: Issue published

UX Magazine is a quarterly professional magazine; it is not a technical or academic journal. There are no literature surveys or footnotes. Articles are practical in nature and are written in an active, personal voice. They are typically between 750 and 2000 words. Once an article is accepted, an editor will be assigned to work closely with the author to prepare their article for publication. More information, including UX Magazine editorial guidelines, is available on the UXPA website.

Please contact Managing Editor JO Bugental (jobugental@gmail.com) or Associate Managing Editor Mindy Maxwell (mlmaxwell73@gmail.com) if you would like to submit a proposal for this issue.
