25 Excellent Usability/UX Articles and Resources

Post from March 30, 2007 (↻ September 22, 2015), reflecting Jens the .

Today I thought I’d share some of the most valuable usability and user experience articles and resources I know, in a somewhat wild mix. Since there’s presumably enough to read and talk about later, please just welcome some great articles and research papers you hopefully enjoy as much as I do:

In case you miss some people, organizations, and/or more stuff concerning the above topics, here are some additional, excellent sites where you’ll always get interesting material and good advice:

No matter that these are 27 resources, what are you favorites of both this and your own bookmarks list?

    That’s an awesome list.

    There are two articles I keep close:

    “Information Interaction Design: A unified field theory of design” by
    Nathan Shedroff:

    “All watched over by machines of loving grace: Some ethical guidelines
    for user experience in ubiquitous-computing settings” by Adam
    Greenfield (Boxes and Arrows)

    Not sure these belong on your list. They’re just good. Curious to hear
    about other personal touchstones.

    Very useful list, and I particularly like Jesse James Garret’s PDF in your list. Although it is quite old now it still covers the user experience fundamentals very well.

    Late addition: If this was helpful, take a look at my Delicious bookmarks tagged usability/ux and temporary, too.
