Can anyone tell me if there is an established classification and category for UX?
You are in a bookstore and looking for books related to UX, under which section would you go look for user experience related information. (The same can be applied to online bookstores)
From what I have seen, based on the wide variety of fields that incorporate UX, I have found it in categories such as Software, Design, Psychology and Science.
So does anyone know if there is an industry standard when you would want to categorise UX?
Based on the question Peter had asked I have provided some more reasoning behind why I am interested in this:
- Research and personal interest (curiosity).
- I am part of an internal social network where I run a group around "UX". I also run a group called "Design". I often find that design related would fit in the "UX Group" and the UX material would fit into the "Design Group".
- I am building a product design website/blog where one big area is UX and I don't want to just go in blindly adding everything under UX and as well as other categories.
- Often when browsing for UX books in online and physical stores (as well as iBooks) UX is scattered all over the place.
