I want to let you know about a new open access journal for our community – Design Science. As the Editor-in-Chief, I’m delighted to announce that the first papers for the journal have just been published.

The journal is a collaboration between the Design Society and Cambridge University Press, providing it with an excellent platform in terms of international exposure and credibility. We have assembled an international Editorial Board of the highest calibre with John Gero joining me as the Co-Editor-in-Chief.

Our aim is to support rigorous communication across the broader design community, encouraging understanding and collaboration of research and ideas within our community. Please see the scope of the journal to find out more information about some of the fields contributing to Design Science.

We welcome hearing your questions and comments, and your manuscript contributions. Please feel free to email us at info@descij.org and I or a member of our team will respond to your query.

Please consider signing up to content alerts, to get notifications when new articles are published online.
