The Journal of Design, Business & Society is a peer-reviewed scholarly publication for business leaders, managers, policy-makers, service-providers and design experts.  It examines the complex nature of design and design thinking in relation to its effective application to solving real-world problems across commercial and broader societal contexts.  It aims to promote cross-disciplinary design research which engages specialist and generalist stakeholders via qualitative, quantitative, visual or applied research methodologies; ultimately leading to tangible implications for current practice or clear direction for future work. 

Submissions are encouraged to include a broad range of perspectives which may encompass business strategists, consumers, teachers, healthcare professionals, patients, market analysts, psychologists, architects and user experience specialists.  Special issues with guest editors focus on timely themes, to emphasise the relevance of design-led approaches in overcoming the multi-faceted challenges of our times.
