Where are all the ID academic journals and writings?

I’ve been searching for academic journals/writings on product design and have not been having the best of luck. I’ve found a couple of decent articles with Google Scholar, but otherwise I’m coming up blank.

Any websites or search suggestions? I’m not really looking for any topic in particular just trying to dive deeper into ID.


I don’t think there is an ID specific Journal besides IDSA’s Innovation magazine.

Here is one of many design journals http://www.ijdesign.org/ojs/index.php/IJDesign/

…is pretty good, you will probably need to go to a good uni library, or have an Athens account to access them on-line

also worth remembering to take a look at a few of the thesis published out there…

‘Desmet, P. (2002). Designing Emotions. Netherlands: Delft University press’ is pretty good
