The journal’s mission is to bring together thought, academic research and corporate practice in all areas of Design Engineering in a reader-friendly format. The journal aims to publish high-quality peer–reviewed articles in the area of Design Engineering. The research published in the journal is practically relevant, so the results are helpful for managers in leadership roles related to projects, programs, and portfolios. Therefore, the research’s theoretical and managerial implications need to be considered. In other words, the journal seeks outstanding contributions to theory and practice and strongly values rigour and relevance.
