The Design Research Journal will have an integrated structure without separate sections for research articles. Main sections as: research, interview, case study, student part, EU section, discussion section, international outlook will be integrated with theory toolbox, toolbox for practice, facts and figures, relevant books and conferences. The integrated structure will give additional information about the research articles and help to understand and implement knowledge.
The theme of the summer issue (no.1 2015) will be about the outlook of the future from a design perspective. Our desire is that the future should be people-powered with countless design-aware people and decision-makers. Policy makers at all levels are increasingly aware of the need for creative, multidisciplinary collaborations in order to solve the global challenges.
Design Research Journal aims to form a platform for integrated knowledge building and future development. And thus, contribute to a paradigm shift in the awareness, understanding and uptake of design in policy-making and in the public and private sectors at large.
