    SUBMISSION TYPES
    Scholarly inquiry appropriate for submission to the Journal of Interior Design falls into four distinct categories:

    Invited Perspectives: A position on current issues that impact interior design. Typically an invitation sent by Editor.

    Invited Perspectives provide a forum for the exchange and debate of ideas among educators, practitioners, and other interested parties. Perspectives are not double-anonymously reviewed. They are evaluated solely by the editor-in-chief. The purpose of Invited Perspectives is to inspire discussion of critical issues facing interior design practice and education. Examples of Invited Perspectives considered for publication include, but are not limited to:

    • Discussion of current topics and concerns
    • Expression of a particular position or stance

    Letters: Responses to ideas published in JID or presented at design conferences.

    Letters offer the opportunity to engage in stimulating dialogue for the purpose of advancing the discipline. While letters expressing a personal opinion are encouraged, such opinions must be supported and substantiated by facts, evidence from the literature, and/or experts in the field. Letters should be submitted in essay format and the issue, position, or article/presentation being addressed must be clearly identified. Letters considered for publication include, but are not limited to:

    • Response to invited perspectives shared in previous JID issues
    • Response to an idea or concept presented in an article or at design conferences

    Articles: Theoretical, Empirical, Historical and/or Critical Inquiries

    Articles must be inquiries made in the context of a theoretical or conceptual framework, with analysis based on an identified set of criteria. Articles should educate the reader about a particular work, artist, object, or theory in relation to an area of expertise, a broader context, and/or as a solution to satisfy human social, physical, and psychological needs. A theoretical/conceptual framework from any discipline can be used to develop criteria so long as it is shown to have a meaningful relationship with the work to be analyzed. Papers in this submission category should increase the knowledge base and reinforce the value of discourse in design studies. Content should focus on interior design issues of scholarly content that will contribute to the body of knowledge. Examples of articles considered for publication include, but are not limited to:

    • Exploration of an issue or formulation of a position
    • Criticism of designed environments
    • Design history and/or historic preservation
    • Socio/Cultural aspects of interior environments
    • Design teaching and pedagogy
    • Design philosophy
    • Design theory and theory development
    • Behavioral relationships and interior environments
    • Human factors and interior environments
    • Material culture and interior environments

    Visual Essays
    Articles presenting creative scholarship take the form of visual essays which are known to communicate ideas using an image-word relationship. While presenting practice-based research including speculative design, and maintaining a level of criticality, creative scholarship articles are led by the design object, event, process, system, artifact, space, or interior. The design is the subject of inquiry and the most prominent aspect. In this case, the article includes a contextual statement that introduces the design, the research topic, and the perspective. Rather than rely on the authority of textual language, the article develops as a series of pages where text and/or images are situated as interdependent elements. Here images, photographs, drawings, sketches and diagrams and textual language of all kinds play a pivotal role in shaping an intellectual inquiry. Authors should shape the visual essay to best communicate the design and inquiry. Please refer to the JID Creative Scholarship issue (vol. 43, no. 1) for examples of how authors have formatted the visual essay as well as dealt with the text : image relationship. These are just examples; authors are encouraged to explore other options that keep within the parameters noted under Submission Guidelines for Visual Essays
