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.

One part consists of research based articles and can be theoretically and/or empiricallybased. 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 part consists of research related reports from conferences, research projects,interviews, reviews of thesis and other books, news, and a calendar. These are published in Swedish.
