Deadline for submissions: 30 March 2016

Over the last thirty years, experimental studies of design have experienced great progresses. Starting from protocol analysis, new technologies and methodological setups are being used to study intent, behaviors and interactions. Many papers with excellent positive results have been published in engineering design research related journals and conferences. At the same time, it has been observed that many truly new ideas and concepts in the Lakatos and Feyerabend sense are often camouflaged and buried in outlier data and negative hypothesis testing results.

These often unintended findings, let us call them unknown unknowns, may for example be the result of unexpected and thus not controlled factors in either the design process, the contextual environment, or the technologies deployed.

The editors believe that those often neglected and unpublished results may contain potentially important and valuable insights, e.g.: 1) they may serve as failed confirmatory study to already published results, which should trigger a refined research into the phenomenon; 2) they may lead to a refinement in research and experiment design; and 3) they may help researchers to formulate more accurate research hypotheses, and 4) they may trigger the emergence of a new, hitherto overlooked paradigm.

This special issue is intended to publish unintended insights, outlier data and negative hypothesis testing results in engineering design research. The authors are encouraged to discuss in detail their research hypothesis, experiment design and data analysis and processing. Apart from the papers reporting positive results, the papers should answer the following question in an analytical and insightful manner: what were the possible factors leading to the negative results? A brief introduction to a positive result, if any, evolved from the negative results is welcome to be included in the paper.

Timelines are as follows:

  • Deadline for initial submission: March 30, 2016
  • Time for the first decision: April 15, 2016
  • Deadline for submitting revisions: May 30, 2016
  • Second round review: June 15, 2016
  • Time for the final decision: July 15, 2016
  • Expected publication date: September, 2016

Submission instructions:

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers. All prospective authors are invited to obtain early feedback on possible submissions by e-mailing an abstract to the corresponding editor.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed and judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of presentation, and relevance to the special issue topics of interest. Submitted papers to this special issue of JIDPS may not have appeared in or be under consideration for another workshop, conference or a journal, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during the review process. Papers of an appropriate standard not included in the special issue may be considered for publication in a regular issue of JIDPS. Manuscripts should be submitted through the journal editorial management system: https://jidps.rndsphere.com, using a paper template that can be downloaded from the same website.
