Artifact is focused on practice-based design research and aims to explore conditions, issues and tasks pertaining to design development in a broad sense. The main emphasis of the journal is on aspects of design development concerning proposals, form-giving and conceptualization, which ties into a range of topics such as strategic design, design thinking, design innovation, design method and process, among others.
The journal is cross-disciplinary in scope and thus welcomes contributions from all design disciplines, including product design and graphic communication, IT and service design as well as organization design and design management.
Artifact publishes academic articles, short research notes, review articles, and essays. Academic articles and research notes are vetted in a double-blind review process.
We send out several calls for contributions each year. In addition, we welcome unsolicited contributions. Please refer to our Information for authors in the bottom right column of this site.
