About this journal

Research in Engineering Design is an international journal that publishes research papers on design theory and methodology in mechanical civil chemical electrical architectural and manufacturing engineering as well as software engineering. The journal is designed for professionals in industry government and academia in research issues relevant to design practice. General areas of interest include theories of design foundations of design environments representations and languages models of design processes and integration of design and manufacturing. Representative topics include functional representation feature-based design shape grammars process design redesign product database models and experimental studies. Research in Engineering Design also publishes book reviews state-of-the-art review articles and research reports from selected design research laboratories. Through a special cooperative agreement the Editor of Konstruktion - one of the world's leading scientific journals in this field - also serves as an Advisory Editor of Research in Engineering Design . This special link will enhance the worldwide flow of important new information in the engineering design areas covered by both journals. Articles that have appeared in one journal and are deemed to be of special interest to readers of both journals will be translated and published in the other.
