Design Principles and Practices: An International Journal—Annual Review aims to create an intellectual frame of reference, and to support an interdisciplinary conversation on the role of design in society. Candidates for inclusion in this survey journal include works by invited contributors and top-ranked articles selected from thematic journals of the collection.

The journal is part of the Design Principles and Practices Journal Collection. This collection offers an interdisciplinary forum to explore the meaning and purpose of design. In professional and disciplinary terms, the network traverses a broad sweep to construct a trans-disciplinary dialogue, which encompasses a wide array of design paradigms and practices. We move between theoretical reflection on the nature of design and case studies of design practice, and from research-based perspectives to the experience-based perspectives of design insiders. We seek to build an epistemic community to make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. The journal collection is defined by our Research Network scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.

Design Principles and Practices: An International Journal—Annual Review is a Hybrid Open Access journal. We offer various pathways to make your research accessible and make accessibility affordable.
