Beall’s List: Potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access publishers This is a list of questionable, scholarly open-access publishers. We recommend that scholars read the available reviews, assessments and descriptions provided here, and then decide for themselves whether they want to submit articles, serve as editors or on editorial boards.

In a few cases, non-open access publishers whose practices match those of predatory publishers have been added to the list as well. The criteria for determining predatory publishers are here. We hope that tenure and promotion committees can also decide for themselves how importantly or not to rate articles published in these journals in the context of their own institutional standards and/or geocultural locus.

RMIT University Library e-resources login. Mon 16 June. 9.00 Registration throughout the day at the reception desk in the Sliperiet foyer on the Umeå Arts Campus Östra Strandgatan 30 (click to find us on Google Maps) Debate: Life Hacking Would you trust a teenager to tinker with biological material? Increasingly the means for designing life, life forms, and lifelike matter are immediately at hand, leading to the rise of wet labs bio-hacker studios. Should we be policing the ethical boundaries and security breaches of this new frontier? Are the limits to our freedom to create biomaterials that we should be legislating? And what new questions are emerging as shift from atoms to bits to cells?

Dr. Gjoko Muratovski Associate Editors Dr. Branden Thornhill-Miller University of Oxford Paris Descartes University - Sorbonne Dr. University of South Australia Dr. Queensland University of Technology The Journal of Design, Business & Society is a cross-disciplinary peer-reviewed scholarly journal that publishes high-quality academic papers that examine design from qualitative, quantitative, visual, or applied research perspectives.

The Journal of Design, Business & Society has a partnership agreement with Design for Business: Research Conference, which is presented by agIdeas—one of the longest running and most prestigious design programs in the world—and is held annually as a part of the Melbourne International Design Week (Australia). Rfdp20# She Ji: The Journal of Design, Economics, and Innovation. She Ji is a peer-reviewed, trans-disciplinary design journal with a focus on economics and innovation, design process and design thinking. She Ji is fully open access. Our mission is to enable design innovation in industry, business, non-profit services, and government through economic and social value creation. Innovation requires integrating ideas, economics, and technology to create new knowledge at the intersection of different fields. She Ji provides a unique forum for such inquiry.

She Ji addresses how societies, organizations, and individuals create, build, distribute, use, and enjoy goods and services, with added focus on strategy and management. It provides key articles in research methods and methodology, philosophy, and philosophy of science to support the core journal area. She Ji publishes seven types of articles:• Original research articles. Hide full aims and scope. Opinion | It’s the end of graphic design as we know it. ‘I’m worried about graphic design. It’s at a critical turning point. The window of opportunity is about to close.’ The speaker is Richard Buchanan, distinguished American design professor and co-founder of the journal Design Issues. The place is the London College of Communication (LCC), where the ‘New Views 2: Conversations and Dialogues in Graphic Design’ conference – organised by Teal Triggs of LCC and Laurene Vaughan of RMIT University in Melbourne – is drawing to an end.

Buchanan’s role, as invited observer and éminence grise, is to sum up what has taken place during the last two days. It is an impossible task and Buchanan tells us straight away that he intends to do no such thing. I can see his point. Rather than attempting to summarise all this – you can’t be in six places at once – Buchanan treated us to some general observations about the state of graphic design.

It was a brilliantly assured performance. Here, an observation by Buchanan seemed especially germane. Design Studies. Design Studies is the premier international peer reviewed journal of design research. It is the only journal to approach an understanding of design from comparisons of its applications in all areas, including engineering and product design, architectural and urban design, computer artefacts and systems design. Design Studies is published by Elsevier Science in co-operation with the Design Research Society and supports its goal of promoting high quality design research, education and practice by publishing research and scholarship of the highest calibre.

The journal impact factor is 1.354 View a recent list of most downloaded articles here: View a recent list of most cited articles here: DRS members can subscribe to the Design Studies journal at a special reduced rate. Systemic Design. Call for Papers : DRS2016 : Brighton UK. Over the past 50 years design research has established a firm basis for our understanding of design.

For DRS2016 we invite you to join us in considering how design research can help us address the problems we face now and the challenges that lie ahead. Whatever your field of design research we encourage you to participate, to show the true diversity of our subject area, and to help us build a conference formed and shaped by the people that come. DRS2016 is hosted by the University of Brighton in the UK, in association with the Royal College of Art and Imperial College, London (where the very first meeting of the Design Research Society was held in 1966). The conference week will give you the chance to experience the energy and creativity of the dynamic city of Brighton. DRS2016 invites new and challenging paper submissions from any area or discipline of design research. All submissions must be in the English language. Review for DRS2016 is by full papers only.
