Where to publish Design Writing: Journals + Publishers

Aaris Sherin

Recommended Posts

Have you ever wondered where to publish design writing? We put together the a list of publishers, academic journals and some trade magazines for the Design Incubation Fellows and wanted to share it out. The journals on the list aren't ranked so some might be better than others for tenure and promotion. The good news is that if your work gets accepted, there are so many venues you could publish in a different journal every month for a couple years!

Please help grow the list by posting suggestions for new additions.
