Call for Papers

Design Research Journal is published by SVID, the Swedish Industrial Design Foundation, twice a year and is the first Swedish scientifically oriented journal within the field of Design Research. The purpose of the journal is to communicate research for the benefit of the academic community as well as practice.

Design Research Journal has two parts:

The research section consists of research based articles and can be theoretically and/or empirically based. We also welcome articles based on case studies. An academic committee reviews the articles in a double blind reviewing process to ensure a good academic standard. We prefer original, new articles.

Another section consists of research related reports from conferences, research projects, interviews, reviews of thesis and other books, news, and a calendar.

The spring issue (no 1 2014) will be open to research articles from all design disciplines.
