Abstract Design research as a field has been studied from diverse perspectives starting from product inception to their disposal. The product of these studies includes knowledge, tools, methods, processes, frameworks, approaches, and theories. The contexts of these studies are innumerable. The unit of these studies varies from individuals to organizations, using a variety of theoretical tools and methods that have fragmented the field, making it difficult to understand the map of this corpus of… 

We cannot play 20 questions with creativity and innovation and win: the necessity of practice-based integrative research

TLDR
The goal of the International Journal on Design Creativity and Innovation (IJDCI) had the goal to broaden the boundaries for studying creativity and innovation beyond engineering as ‘living things moving in a field’.

Documenting design research by structured multilevel analysis: supporting the diversity of the design research community of practice

Abstract The diversity of design research studies and their associated methods and reporting style make it difficult for the design research community of practice to leverage its work into further

ON MODELINGAn evolving map of design practice and design research

TLDR
The design research landscape has been the focus of a tremendous amount of exploration and growth over the past five to 10 years and is currently a jumble of approaches that, while competing as well as complementary, nonetheless share a common goal: to drive, inspire, and inform the design development process.

A theoretical analysis of creativity methods in engineering design: casting and improving ASIT within C–K theory

Approaches to supporting creativity are diverse and numerous. Making sense of these methods, including the comparative benefits of one approach over another is highly significant to both research and

The PSI Framework and Theory of Design

TLDR
The drivers for PSI's development into a framework that provides the dimensions of describing design contexts in their variety and can be used to integrate other models and theories at different levels of granularity to explain intricate design situations are traced.

TLDR
The network version of the PSI framework, a framework that includes several models, ranging from simple to complex, networked, and hierarchical or recursive that can be used to model all design scenarios, is demonstrated.

Creativity and scientific discovery with infused design and its analysis with C–K theory

TLDR
This paper uses infused design method to generate new concepts and methods in the classic discipline of statics, in addition to its prior use in the generation of a number of creative designs, to better understanding of ID and C–K.

Developing an ideation method to be used in cross-functional inter-organizational teams by means of action design research

TLDR
A number of preliminary design principles were formulated and implemented in an ideation method that combines individual phases of rotational and gallery viewing with phases of verbal group interaction that was tested and refined in a cross-functional inter-organizational group comprising participants from different actors in the railway sector.
