Single sign-on provider OpenAthens is now accepting submissions for its Best Publisher User Experience Award 2021.
The identity and access management specialist is calling for applications from online publishers demonstrating how they have put the needs and experience of users at the heart of changes to digital services.
The award celebrates the incredible work publishers from across the globe have done to improve user experience and journey to content.
In their submissions, publishers must demonstrate: evidence of user experience research; their understanding of the user journey and challenges users face when accessing content; good user experience design and methodology; tangible evidence of learner and researcher engagement in projects; compliance with the latest accessibility guidelines; a simple, seamless user journey; defined user experience goals and objectives and how they are measured; and plans for future development.
Applications will be accepted till November 6, 2020 and the winner will be announced at the Access Lab conference in March 2021.
The shortlisted candidates will be announced on December 1, 2020, and the finalists will present their work as a case study at a webinar ahead of the conference.
The 2019’s award spotlighted the publishers who put their users at the heart of their content, with the simple aim of giving users easy access.
Announced at the very first virtual Access Lab conference, Emerald Insight took home the inaugural award for their insights platform. They clearly demonstrated how they had worked closely with users to understand their needs and user journey.
The award demonstrates OpenAthens’ ongoing commitment to the evolution of the information industry in enabling simple access to knowledge for the benefit of all.
