    Aims and Scope

    The new volume Design Research Now2 presents current positions in design research as well as groundbreaking research projects, with an emphasis on today's many different approaches to design research. The editors based their selection particularly on the relevance of design research in the context of current debates on social aspects, knowledge, innovation, and technology. The publication brings together innovative approaches in the areas of speculative design, critical design, design interactions, participatory design, sustainable design, and open design. The significance of these directions for design and design research is presented via exemplary research projects and analyzed in programmatic essays. The introduction critically examines the substance of these research concepts for the transformation of design practice and design education and discusses the perspective of design as an integrative discipline.
