Reviewing policy


DESIGN 2018 conference review process will be accomplished in three stages:

  1. In the first stage DESIGN Programme Chairs will check all the full paper contributions received. Submissions appropriate to DESIGN 2018 topics and scope, prepared according to invitation and instructions will be assigned for reviews.
  2. The quality of DESIGN conference events is reinforced by members of the Scientific Advisory Board that evaluate all the papers through blind review process. Each paper will be assigned for three reviews. The members of DESIGN 2018 Scientific Advisory Board are the distinguished members of The Design Society and respected researchers and professionals. The review criteria are the novelty and level of contribution, validity of conclusions, industrial or application perspective and formal qualities of the contribution.
  3. Based on the DESIGN 2018 Scientific Advisory Board evaluations the Programme Chairs will select the papers for the DESIGN 2018 conference. The decision of the Programme Chairs is final.

The reviewed and accepted full papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings provided that final papers are received by the appropriate deadline and conform to the layout guidelines. The Conference Proceedings on electronic media will be distributed to all the participants at the DESIGN Conference site and will be available in hard copy on request. All the DESIGN conference publications have appropriate ISSN numbers.
