Journal of Design Research (JDR) “is an interdisciplinary journal, emphasising human aspects as a central issue of design through integrative studies of social sciences and design disciplines.” It focuses on “(1) the scientific study of the process and the content of design, and (2) the development of methods and tools to enhance the quality of design practice… .”

The journal aims to:

  • “bring together theories, models and actual products from related design areas, including engineering, architecture, industrial design and planning
  • emphasise human aspects as a central issue of design through integrative studies of social sciences and design disciplines
  • offer a platform for high-quality research, theory making, analysis, education, and practice
  • support the dialogue between practitioners and academics, avoiding a purely academic discussion on design science
  • highlight new developments in artifact design.”

Topics covered include:

  • Expertise in design
  • Design tools
  • “Design learning strategies and design pedagogy.”

JDR “helps academics, researchers and professional designers working in the field of design and design engineering to disseminate information and to learn from each other’s work [and] publishes original papers, review papers, case studies, conference reports, book reviews, notes, and commentaries.” Special Issues devoted to particular topics in design are occasionally published.
