A number of the Design Factors group are members of the editorial board for ITERATIONS and work in colaboration with editors from various institutions across the island.

ITERATIONS is at the forefront of recently emerged and emerging technologies and design trends and will help position Ireland at the forefront of these.

Articles are selected by an editorial panel which reflect current research activity and scholarly articles on or about design research and practice. The discipline areas will include as wide a range of Design Research as possible.

ITERATIONS will initially focus on Design Research coming from Irish Institutions and Design practitioners but as the Journal builds a presence and reputation it will seek publications and articles from international researchers who have connections with Irish Design.
