Research-Based Web Design and Usability Guidelines - Current Research-Based Guidelines on Web Design and Usability Issues. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2006.
"The Research-Based Web Design & Usability Guidelines (Guidelines) were developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), in partnership with the U.S. General Services Administration. This new edition of the Guidelines updates the original set of 187 guidelines, and adds 22 new ones. Many of the guidelines were edited, and numerous new references have been added.
