The Journal of Design, Business & Society is a cross-disciplinary peer-reviewed scholarly journal that publishes high-quality academic papers that examine design from qualitative, quantitative, visual, or applied research perspectives. Our mission is to promote transdisciplinary approach to research in design, and we are interested in studies that examine design in all its multifaceted forms, and from a range of platforms—whether they are social, environmental, commercial or educational in nature. We are also interested in receiving manuscripts on research in design that are coming from non-design areas, such as business, marketing, management, health, social sciences, environmental sciences, and so on.
The Journal of Design, Business & Society has a partnership agreement with Design for Business: Research Conference, which is presented by agIdeas—one of the longest running and most prestigious design programs in the world—and is held annually as a part of the Melbourne International Design Week (Australia).
The Journal of Design, Business & Society is a scholarly peer reviewed journal that publishes high-quality academic papers, case studies, and critiques that examine the role of design in business or society, as well as book reviews of relevant literature. We aim to promote cross-disciplinary research, and therefore, in addition to soliciting design papers, we are also interested in receiving manuscripts on research about design that are coming from non-design areas, such as business, marketing, management, health, psychology, social sciences, environmental sciences, and so on. The journal is published twice a year by the international academic publisher – Intellect. The journal also commissions special issues with guest editors.
