Introducing a new international journal: Design Science

Website: http://www.designsciencejournal.org/

The aim of Design Science is to serve as the archival venue of science-based design knowledge across multiple disciplines. There is increasing recognition that design is a discipline in its own right with a holistic and multifaceted nature. Design knowledge is widely dispersed across fields with different terminologies, traditions and research practices. Rigorous design research is published primarily in discipline-oriented journals, most often inaccessible to wider audiences interested in design but without the requisite disciplinary depth. Design Science aims to facilitate communication across diverse fields and serve as a bridge across several communities, publishing original research but with a strong emphasis on accessibility by scholars from a diversity of disciplines. Design Science further aims to motivate scholars from these diverse fields to recognize the importance of their expertise to the design of artifacts and systems and thus pursue work with direct applicability to design.

Articles address primarily the design research and education community at the postgraduate level (masters and doctoral), university faculty and practicing professionals interested in state-of-the-art design knowledge.

Scope

Design Science publishes original quantitative and qualitative research in the creation of artifacts and systems, and their embedding in our physical, virtual, psychological, economic, and social environment. The Journal also publishes reviews and survey papers with strong tutorial elements, theory papers, shorter notes (for example, pertaining to a particularly interesting exemplification of design science in a design artifact or practice), editorials, and book, software and design tool reviews. The fields contributing to Design Science include: architecture; behavioral, social and cognitive sciences; life and health sciences; business; computer and information science; engineering; industrial design; and organizational and management science.

Design Science is a gold open access journal.
