Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 6:30am

Peter’s editorial titled The Systemic Turn: Leverage for World Changing, served as the theme for the articles comprising the issue.  The issue featured five articles from RSD5 authors, including Jones and Jeremy Bowes’ Rendering Systems Visible for Design: Synthesis Maps as Constructivist Design Narratives. All articles are available free for download at https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/she-ji-the-journal-of-design-economics-and-innovation/vol/3/issue/3

 

Peter also edited a second RSD symposium collection, a Springer book in the Translational Systems Science series, one of the series edited by Dr. Kyoichi Kijima of Tokyo Institute of Technology. The book Systemic Design: Theory, Methods and Practice, comprises 10 chapters from the top-selected papers from the RSD4 Symposium, the 2015 RSD conference in Banff. As with the She Ji issue, the chapters were developed in close collaboration with authors form the emerging systemic design community, and were also rigorously peer-reviewed. One of the chief differences in the book collection is that the chapters are widely ranging in length, with some chapters at nearly 50 or 70 pages long. As Springer books are not open access (See the volume at https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9784431556381#otherversion=9784431556381 ) please contact Peter Jones if interested in the articles.
