About the Journal
visual:design:scholarship is an internationally refereed, online journal that aims to stimulate, support and disseminate design research with a focus on visual communication design in the Australasian context.
The journal seeks particularly to encourage contributions that speak to, and on behalf of, the visual communication design industry in Australasia. The aim is to include fully refereed contributions from practitioners, academics and students. A range of methodologies, research perspectives and forms of presentation is encouraged.
visual:design:scholarship seeks contributions to the research field of visual communication design, including all aspects of visual communication practice, pedagogy and philosophy. New directions, emerging challenges, future possibilities, experimental outcomes and alternative perspectives relevant to the Australasian context are of particular interest. Contributions to this context are called from local and international scholars.
visual:design:scholarship is published online continuously, as articles become available. All of the articles in any given calendar year will comprise a separate volume. Special editions will be published as additional numbers within each volume.
