Political Studies Association

Use

A simple but powerful search engine provides comprehensive results, and most of free and paid content can be easily downloaded. The site's design is quite complex and sophisticated, but well in the reach of the average user

Searchability

A simple search option in the homepage toolbar provides great results and a list of available links, with a short abstract

Downloading

Both free and paid content is provided in formats (mostly pdf files) ready for easy downloading, along with on-screen saving

Navigational Aids

While a comprehensive sitemap is available, it would probably be helpful to have a FAQ or other aids - navigation paths are not always immediate to grasp

User Friendliness

Based on a complex outlook and a sophisticated design, the PSA site is visually rich but nevertheless still user-friendly. Just watch out for some visual/content overload
