Weave: Journal Of Library User Experience is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal for library user experience (UX) professionals published by Michigan Publishing. More about Weave.

Focus and Scope

We're looking to expand UX knowledge across and within libraries of all types. See our editorial philosophy, and decide if you're interested in submitting to our scholarly section or Dialog Box section.

Scholarly submissions

Our scholarly articles go through double-anonymized peer review, meaning author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. Our scholarly submissions team will guide you through the process.

Dialog Box submissions

Our Dialog Box articles are not peer reviewed, but you will get support from our editors to get them into shape for publication. The Dialog Box accepts the following types of submissions:

     - Opinion pieces

     - Case studies

     - Reviews of books and tools related to UX and libraries

     - Letters to the editors

Got another idea? Pitch it! We welcome visual storytelling, research & design artifacts, or other creative formats.
