A UX research portfolio is a collection of research projects and findings that showcases a UX researcher’s skills and experience. It is typically used to apply for jobs or to showcase a researcher’s work to potential clients or employers. A UX portfolio should include the following elements:

  1. Detailed descriptions of the research projects included in the portfolio, including the goals, objectives, and methodology used.
  2. Examples of the research findings, such as user personas, journey maps, and affinity maps.
  3. Evidence of the impact of the research on the design process, such as design changes or improvements based on the research findings.
  4. Examples of the researcher’s ability to communicate research findings to stakeholders and teams, such as presentations or reports.

A UX research portfolio should be well-organized and easy to navigate, with clear descriptions of each project and the research process used. It should very clearly highlight the researcher’s ability to conduct thorough, high-quality research and use the findings to drive design decisions.
