Aims & Scope


Artifact: Journal of Design Practice responds to the growing self-confidence within the design research environment and provides a platform for nurturing and extending the fertile grounds of its contemporary practices. The aim of the journal is to publish research in the domain of practice-based, constructive and artistic design research at the highest international level. Research that addresses any topical field through such design research practices are of significance to the journal. The journal encourages the publication of research that reaches beyond disciplinary and topical boundaries to support exchange and cross-fertilization of insights and methodologies. Artifact promotes discourse and inspires ideas in support of the creation of new knowledge. The journal welcomes submissions focused on contextual, foundational, conceptual, empirical as well as methodological issues and advancements as long as they make explicit the contribution to the proliferating rigorous practices of design research.
