Links to various usability research sites.
All of our
findings are grounded in good scientific research, and are not based upon opinions. Here are some links to the various
resources we use when performing a usability analysis, or designing a usability test. Some of these require membership,
while others may not.
We use the APA databases
to find papers on research in the areas of Human Cognition and Perception.
The ACM Digital Library
offers many sources of research papers in the area of not only Human Computer Interaction, but also all other aspects of
computing. This site will allow you to search for view the summary of any paper in the library. Membership is
required to download them. Some may be purchased online.
One of the best overall sites
regarding Usability is the usability.gov Web site
. Part of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, the site is devoted entirely to usability, and the research
that went into their findings. A wonderful site!
