Weave publishes a mixture of theoretical and practical material on user experience topics aimed at UX practitioners in libraries. "Practitioner" is defined loosely, so it could include just about anyone interested in improving the experience of using the library (and that should include just about anyone).  Weave is experimental, and library focused but not library-centric.  The editors will consider publishing material that is not explicitly about libraries as long as there is some potential linkage to library practice.

At Weave UX, we don't want you to wait until you've written an article to tell us about it. Submit a short pitch for your idea, and we'll help you develop it into an article.

Already have something written? Pitch it to us in a few sentences. We'll take it from there.

We are looking for two kinds of work:

  1. Full length, scholarly articles of relevance to UX in libraries.

    We are interested in publishing innovative and cutting edge research, practical applications and their implications, ideas and speculation about future directions for UX.

  2. The Dialog Box, a new kind of review section.

    Weave’s Dialog Box aims to extend beyond the traditional book review section and feature critical dialog not only with books but with other media that set the boundaries of library UX.

If you've already had your pitch approved and are preparing your paper for submission, please review our manuscript submission guidelines.
