Aim & Scope
CoDesign The aims of are: to report new research and scholarship in principles, procedures and techniques relevant to collaboration in design; to act as an international forum for discussion of collaborative design issues; to foster communication between academic researchers and industry practitioners concerned with collaborative design; to encourage a flow of information across the boundaries of the disciplines contributing to collaborative design; to stimulate ideas and provoke widespread discussion with a forward-looking perspective. CoDesign will be inclusive, encompassing collaborative, co-operative, concurrent, human-centred, participatory, socio-technical and community design among others. Research in any design domain concerned specifically with the nature of collaboration design will be relevant to the proposed journal. Research papers will be welcomed which present theory, report empirical studies, and describe and evaluate collaborative design methods, tools and techniques. Papers reflecting on practical experience of collaborative design would also be welcomed. Anticipated topics include collaborative design theory; collaborative design methods, techniques and tools; methods for studying collaborative design; studies of collaborative design; computer-supported collaborative design (CSCD) system requirements; CSCD systems, design and use; communication in collaborative design; computer mediated collaborative design communication; handling design issues (e.g. sustainability) collaboratively, and managing collaborative design. The journal will provide a primary outlet for research publications, state of the art reviews, book reviews and correspondence discussing collaborative design.
