Established in 1997, The Design Journal is an international refereed journal covering all aspects of design. The journal welcomes articles on design in both cultural and commercial contexts.

The journal is published six times a year and provides a forum for design scholars, professionals, educators and managers worldwide. It aims to publish thought-provoking work which will have a direct impact on design knowledge and which challenges assumptions and methods, while being open-minded about the evolving role of design.

We invite high quality, original articles which have relevance to design practice, theory, management and education.

The Design Journal is the journal of the European Academy of Design.

Since taking over editorship of the journal in January 2014, the team has introduced several developments and the journal has moved from four to six issues per year.
