Design Behaviors Journal 2020

Call for Papers

UDA Annual Int’l Research Journal 2020

Submit before Monday, April 27



The purpose of the Design Behaviors journal is to standardize research methodology and terminology related to all design disciplines.

The design originated from nature/environment, and we understand our existence in nature/environment by how design influences us in a conscious or/and unconscious manner. Its power evidenced by how we know, what we buy, where to go, why we act, and most of all; it shows where we are now and where we are going. Furthermore, it can describe as sustainable design or ephemeral design based on its function and the message. Through five senses (sight, touch, taste, smell, and sound), we acknowledge its aesthetics and purpose. Also, it manifests our feelings and conceptions. Naturally, the design is our entity.

With those characteristics, we cannot describe it as a natural outcome; its aesthetic is from theories and methodologies. It is not either art or science. However, it is a cross-disciplinary ‘Art-science.’ Since design discipline has been increasing its education, both master’s and Ph.D. programs worldwide, we need more design research journals to support our discipline to formulate and unify design research methodology and terminology. Therefore, Design Behaviors Journal’s goal is to standardize research methodology and vocabulary for the design discipline.
