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 sections; one research section with submitted scientific articles, which are peer reviewed; another one with research related articles and reports written by journalists. These articles are interviews with researchers and other persons of interest for the design research community, news, book reviews, and a calendar, etc.

The scientifically based articles can be theoretically and/or empirically based. An academic committee reviews the articles in a double blind reviewing process to ensure a good academic standard. The articles should be original, previously unpublished articles.

The winter issue (no 2 2014) will be open to research articles from all design disciplines.
