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  emerging design trends, technologies, practices and teaching methodologies, and will help position Ireland at the forefront of these.

Submitted articles are double blind peer reviewed and then selected by an editorial panel. Published articles reflect current research activity and scholarly articles on or about Design Research and Practice. The discipline areas include as wide a range of Design Research and Design Practice as possible.

ITERATIONS focuses on Design Research coming from Irish Institutions and Design practitioners. While the journal builds a presence and reputation it also publishes articles from international researchers who have connections with Irish Design.
