The Next Chapter is Here for UXPA’s Journal!

The Journal of Usability Studies (https://uxpajournal.org/) has a long history (our first issue was in the fall of 2005) of publishing high quality articles focused on research-based usability best practices. The time has (finally) come for the journal to join UXPA in reflecting the broader focus for the publication. Going forward, the publication will be renamed the Journal of User Experience (JUX).  We will continue to publish usability-focused research articles with a continued expansion into the diverse topics associated with user experience. Are you looking to publish research that you think would fit the broader scope of user experience? Consider publishing your article with JUX (https://uxpajournal.org/call-for-papers/). JUX is a peer-reviewed, international, online publication dedicated to promoting and enhancing the practice, research, …

We sat down with our Pre-Conference Course chair, Rajesh Kalidindi to learn a little more about one of our favorite UXPA family members. https://www.linkedin.com/in/rajeshdesign/ 1) How did you get started in UX? One day, during the Dot Com boom, I presented a design to a client, and their question about usability opened my eyes to user experience. Then, I started learning about usability by taking courses and observing users’ behavior. 2) What was your first volunteer role with UXPA International?

In memory of Dick Horst

Tristan Wilson had contacted me prior to the memorial, mentioned that he was collecting anecdotes to give a eulogy on behalf of the UserWorks staff and asked me if I’d like to add something.
