Paper Submission Guidelines


All papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed. Authors should not be identified in the body of the paper or extended summary. Authors should be referred to in the text or notes in the third person only.


Reviewers will be looking for top quality research that is significant in theory or practice. Pay attention to the academic quality of your paper: structure, language, argumentation, contribution to theory, and referencing. Be sure to highlight your work's originality and innovativeness as well as relevance to the conference and track. Any conclusions given in the paper must be backed-up with clearly presented evidence. If you are not a native English speaker we strongly recommend that you have your paper proof-read prior to first submission.


Full papers should be between 4000–6000 words in length. We welcome any research approach or type of paper including conceptual, empirical and critical literature reviews. However, we expect high standards of scholarship within the papers in terms of establishing the theoretical context, explicating the methods of inquiry, and reporting results that may aid other researchers.


Please use only photographs or art that you have copyright clearance or appropriate fair use to use. Please give proper credit or cite fair use as needed.


A special issue of the Design Management Journal will be dedicated to the selected papers from the conference. Authors who present their papers at the conference will be invited to submit their paper for the Special Issues.
