  • Research in Engineering Design
Design methodology has always seemed to have a problematic relationship with science. The “design methods movement” started out with intentions of making design more “scientific”, but the more mature field of design methodology has resulted in clarifying the differences between design and science. This paper reviews the relatively short history of design methodology and its relationship with science, maps out some of the major themes that have sustained it, and tries to establish some agreed… 
Management as Design, But What Kind of Design? An Appraisal of the Design Science Analogy for Management
The identity of management as a field of study is frequently challenged on the basis of its relevance to practice. This paper engages with the concept of a design science as it is considered to offer
Are We Aware of What We Are Doing in Design Research? (Design Research between Science and Practice)
This contribution analyzes Design Research in its past and current status with regard to a prevailing opinion, that besides great success there remain weaknesses and deficits due to its uncontrolled
A Structure for Design Theory
The field of engineering design research is being pulled into two opposing directions—toward scientific rigor on one hand, and a greater relevance for professional practice on the other. The

TLDR
The focus of the research has shifted over time, from computer-aided design and design methodology to design epistemology and design cognition, and the concept of the co-evolution of problem and solution is developed.
ON METHODOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF ENGINEERING DESIGN RESEARCH
Its growing importance requests us to better understand engineering design and design research. Our investigation focuses on the methodological characteristics of design research. The method of
Developing theory-driven design research
A proposal and evaluation of a design method in design science research
TLDR
The design process proposed was of limited success but may be useful for other IS researchers seeking guidance on how to design the artefact in an IS design science project.
Constructive Synergy in Design Science Research: A Comparative Analysis of Design Science Research and the Constructive Research Approach
TLDR
The main finding is that there is a potential problem in claiming knowledge contribution from evaluation of the utility of an artifact, and the two approaches are similar and compatible, save for details in practical requirements and partly underlying philosophical assumptions.
What is good?: a comparison between the quality criteria used in design and science
TLDR
The quality criteria used in design with those used in science are compared in order to gain insight into what design can contribute to the development of science.
