The Journal of Interior Design is a scholarly, refereed publication dedicated to a pluralistic exploration of the ‎interior environment.  The Journal seeks to move the discipline forward by welcoming scholarly inquiry from ‎diverse and interdisciplinary approaches, perspectives, and methods that actively explore and analyze the ‎evolving definition of the interior.  The Journal’s publications investigate the interior relative to design, human ‎perception, behavior, and experience, at all scales and for all conditions.  Scholarship published in the Journal ‎shapes, informs, and defines interior design education, practice, research, criticism, and theory.  ‎

New Virtual Issue

The latest Virtual Issue from the Journal of Interior Design is now available: Technology Research: Prologue, Present, and Prospective curated by Amy Huber

As many of us are working, teaching, practicing, socializing, studying, and researching from ‎home using various forms of technology, this compilation of articles is timely. As noted by ‎Huber, Journal of Interior Design authors have explored technology to inform design decisions ‎and process, enhance creative scholarship, enrich design pedagogy, and understand human ‎behavior and societal issues. These articles will be free access for one-two months and provide ‎valuable information for anyone interested in the relationship between technology and ‎interiors.
