The Journal of Design and Science

MIT Media Lab

The worlds of Design and Science are inextricably linked. Science is informed by Design. Design is a science. The interactions between the two are powerful, subtle, often unrecognized.

The Journal of Design and Science (JoDS), a joint venture of the MIT Media Lab and the MIT Press, forges new connections between science and design, breaking down the barriers between traditional academic disciplines in the process. Targeting readers with open, curious minds, JoDS explores timely, controversial topics in science, design, and society with a particular focus on the nuanced interactions among them.

Challenging both traditional academic silos and the established publishing practices associated with them, JoDS is hosted on a collaborative, open-access, open-review, rapid publication platform that actively invites community participation and supports rich, multimedia content. JoDS empowers authors and readers to engage in fruitful, ongoing and above all stimulating conversation and debate about their work and ideas.
