The Usability Professionals' Association (UPA) announces the launch of a new
publication in the fourth quarter of 2005, the Journal of Usability Studies.
This publication will be a peer-reviewed, on-line journal dedicated to
promoting and enhancing the practice, research, ethics, and education of
usability engineering.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts addressing various aspects of
quantitative and qualitative usability studies that have a strong
generalization value to other practitioners working with any
human-interactive product.
This can include (but are not limited to):
.	empirical findings of usability studies (but not the full usability
.	comparative studies between usability methods, approaches, methods,
and techniques for planning and conducting usability tests  
.	newly defined and tested usability metrics, 
.	data analysis approaches, 
.	academic research that has strong practical and applicable
implications to design and testing, 
.	critical or thought/discussion papers challenging and questioning
practices and proposing innovative ideas and approaches, 
.	reporting the design and implementation of teaching or training
.	descriptions and discussions of automated, computerized tools for
usability data collection and testing, or 
.	the empirical development and implementation of usability standards
and guidelines.

'Usability studies' can include:
.	experiments, 
.	laboratory studies, 
.	field studies, 
.	contextual inquiries, 
.	ethnographic studies,
.	remote testing, 
.	expert or heuristic evaluations, 
.	model-based evaluations
.	 and other techniques

The journal will appear online quarterly starting the last quarter of 2005.
The journal will be linked to the ACM's digital library. Each submitted
manuscript will undergo a blind peer-review process managed by the members
of the editorial board. To ensure a rapid turn-around and currency of
published papers, each accepted paper will undergo only one revision round
when necessary.
