mUX: The Journal of Mobile User Experience is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen.

Mobile User Experience combines technology, social and business research including interaction techniques for mobile devices, location-based applications, and mobile services in entertainment, advertising, retail and gaming.

This is a field where studies are rapidly executed and lean prototypes are quickly built and explored with users to evaluate the potential for new services.

mUX aims to bring research to the community quickly, enabling new ideas to get traction allowing researchers to share first-view thinking with their peers with the academic rigour of a peer-reviewed journal.

mUX  will accept short articles of 2-4 pages. These may be extended conference articles, or contain studies that build towards full journal articles.
