UX Award finalists 2024. Trophy cup

Meet our three UX Award finalists!

13 December 2023 • Jane Charlton, senior marketing manager - community and content

We’re excited to announce the three finalists for our 2024 UX Award

Bone & Joint/ 67 Bricks, BMJ and Cambridge University Press have all progressed to the final stage of our 2024 UX Award. They’ll present their UX innovations at our finalists webinar on 7 February 2024.

Ahead of the webinar, our final three have been asked to provide further evidence to the judges of learner and researcher engagement with their product and how they’ve embedded a UX approach across their organization. They will be judged on a number of factors that play a part in creating a seamless and engaging user journey to content and services.

The trio will be joined by this year's award winner, Sage Publishing. Head of user experience Alan Maloney will give an update on their UX work since winning the award earlier this year.

Commenting this year’s applications, UX Award judge Natasha Den Dekker said:

“It's great to see such a variety of applications with different approaches to incorporating user research and UX design principles into their product development. I’m really excited to learn more about how our finalists will take this further.”

Meet our UX award finalists

Bone & Joint

Bone & Joint serve a global audience of orthopedic surgeons who need access to critical resources to treat their patients. Until recently, the publisher delivered journals via an off-the-shelf solution with customer data on disparate systems.

Bone & Joint worked with 67 Bricks to build a new journal platform and fully integrated it with a CRM system. Before that, most user platform activity was hidden from view. This made it difficult for Bone & Joint to respond to customers’ needs. But now Bone & Joint can react to a changing environment and provide the best service for its users.


As part of their vision for a healthier world, BMJ engaged with funders and universities to explore challenges around evidencing real-world impact of their research. This led to BMJ collaborating with Overton to develop BMJ Impact Analytics - the only impact tool focused on health and social care. Users can now more easily evidence the impact on clinical guidance and health policy world-wide.

Cambridge University Press

Research Directions is a new series of question-led, open access journals that have broken free of the limitations of the traditional publication model to better reflect the research process.

Research Directions leverages both peer-reviewed and early research outputs platforms and encourages collaboration through innovative user interactions. The interactive network map visually displays connections between contributions. This allows users to interact with content in a novel and engaging way.

The user-centred approach has defined and refined Research Directions, with iterations based on user research. It continues to evolve with further enhancements to the user experience.
