Participate in the 2010 UXmatters Reader Survey

November 1, 2010

We’re celebrating the fifth anniversary of UXmatters this month. Since our launch in November 2005, we’ve published 388 articles—including columns, interviews, and reviews of books, conferences, and products for UX professionals—on a great variety of topics, by 110 authors from countries around the world. Over the years, our 23 columnists have contributed 210 columns, and this month, we’re adding two new columnists:

  1. Shanshan Ma—whose column Mobility: User experience on the move focuses on user experience, user interface design, and usability for mobile devices
  2. Colleen Roller—whose column Decision Architecture: Designing for decision making discusses designing Web sites to optimize users’ decision-making experience and, thus, ensure companies achieve their business objectives

Our community of readers on UXmatters continues to grow. Over the past year, more than 353,000 UX professionals have read articles on UXmatters.

At UXmatters, our goal is to produce a Web magazine that fulfills the information needs of UX professionals worldwide. To continue to achieve that goal, we need to hear from you! Therefore, we are now conducting our fifth annual reader survey to give you an opportunity to tell us how we’re doing, what your future content wants and needs are, and a little something about yourself.

Please participate in the 2010 UXmatters Reader Survey to let us know what kinds of articles you’d like to read on UXmatters and help shape the future of UXmatters. What we learn from all of you will help UXmatters better serve the needs of the UX community.

Completing the survey takes only about 10 minutes. The survey will close on December 1, 2010. Once the survey closes, we’ll publish the results on our Web site.

Thanks, in advance, for participating in our survey!
