Press Release

User Experience (UX) Call for Authors

(Bloomingdale, IL: July 2012)

The theme of UXPA’s UX Magazine for the 1st quarter of 2013 is UX Careers, and proposals are now being accepted for the issue.

Articles may reflect topical areas such as learnings from one’s own career experiences, advice for managers or individual contributors, the future and history of the UX profession, the status of UX education, portfolio and interview tips, and/or emerging UX roles.

These topics are only suggestions though, so please feel free to get creative with your submission ideas!

The schedule is:

  • August 1, 2012: Article proposals (short summaries of the key points in your article) due
  • October 1, 2012: Final articles due
  • January 2013: Issue published

UX Magazine articles are typically between 750 and 2000 words. They are practical in nature and are written in an active, personal voice. There are no literature surveys or footnotes. Also, authors work closely with a member of the editorial board to prepare their article for publication. More information about UX Magazine editorial guidelines is available at here.


Please contact Managing Editor Aga Bojko (abojko@usercentric.com) and Special Guest Editor Chelsey Glasson (cglasson@salesforce.com) if you are interested in writing a proposal for the 2013 1st quarter issue.
