    Special issue

    The journal Art, Design and Communication in Higher Education will publish
    a special issue on best practices in Ph.D. education for design in November

    We seek articles offering examples of best practice and models for what
    should be done in developing the Ph.D. in design.

    We invite submissions on topics on all aspects of doctoral education.

    Suggested themes:

    Content of taught courses
    Management of courses-by-research
    Admission practice
    Curriculum development
    Program planning
    Staffing needs
    Resource allocation
    Thesis requirements
    Research methods requirements
    Operational definitions of degree programs.
    Research funding
    Quality assurance

    This issue will focus on exclusively the research doctorate. In most cases,
    this is the degree titled Ph.D. We will not consider the doctorate in
    professional practice (f.ex., D.Des.), the studio doctorate (DFA, DCA), or
    the teaching doctorate (DA, Ed.D.)

    We recognize that doctoral awards differ among nations and across
    disciplines. We will consider articles on doctoral research degrees with
    different titles as long as the award is a research degree with a clearly
    defined research component.

    The editors of the special issue are David Durling and Ken Friedman.

    David Durling is director of the Advanced Research Institute at
    Staffordshire University School of Art and Design. He is also chair of the
    Design Research Society and editor of Design Research News.

    Ken Friedman is Associate Professor of Leadership and Strategic Design in
    the Department of Technology and Knowledge Management, Norwegian School of
    Management. He is also Visiting Professor at Staffordshire University.

    Together, Durling and Friedman organized and chaired the international
    conference on doctoral education in design in La Clusaz, France.

    Submission Guidelines

    Aims and Scope

    Art, Design and Communication in Higher Education is a refereed journal
    which aims to inform, stimulate and promote the development of research
    with a learning and teaching focus for art, design and communication within
    higher education. This issue is focused on design.

    Notes for Contributors

    We will only consider papers that are not being considered for publication
    elsewhere. If there is more than one author, please attach to every
    submission a letter confirming that all authors have agreed to the
    submission and that the article is not currently being considered for
    publication by any other journal.


    Submissions will be circulated for double blind peer review. It is the aim
    of the journal editorial team that authors will normally be informed of the
    submission's suitability for the journal within eight weeks. Authors of
    accepted papers will, in due course, receive proofs of their articles and
    be asked to send corrections to the editor.

    Types of contribution

    There are three possible types of contribution:

    Major Papers - suggested length is 5000-6000 words.

    Material presented will contribute to knowledge in its field and should
    include original work of a research or developmental nature and/or proposed
    new methods or ideas which are clearly and thoroughly presented and argued.

    Shorter Items of length 1,000 - 2,500 words.

    These could include reports of research in progress, reflections on the
    research process, research evaluations of funded projects.


    Of relevant recent publications, electronic media, software and conference
    reports. Separate guidelines for reviewers are available, please contact
    Paul B Clark for details - p.clark@bton.ac.uk


    Each manuscript should contain:

    i) title page with full title and subtitle (if any). For the purposes of
    blind refereeing, full name of each author with current affiliation and
    full address/phone/fax/email details plus a short biographical note (150
    words) should be supplied on a separate sheet.

    (ii) abstract of 100-150 words

    (iii) 3-6 key words

    (iv) the main text should be clearly organised with a hierarchy of heading
    and subheadings, with quotations exceeding 40 words displayed, indented, in
    the text. Main headings should be typed in capitals, secondary headings
    should be in lower case.

    (v) the style should be clear and concise, using straightforward language.
    If technical terms or acronyms must be included, they should be defined
    when first introduced. UK spellings should be used.

    (v) references in the text should be made thus - author's name, year of
    publication in brackets, relevant page numbers. If reference is made to a
    number of publications by an author in the same year, these should be
    distinguished by using suffixes (2001a, 2001b etc)

    References should be listed alphabetically at the end of paper as the
