What is academic design research?

We are covering this in one of the lectures. There is a summary of this which is nearly a decade old (and which to be honest I thought no longer existed) written by myself and Rachel Cooper which as overview summaries go, is not bad. This document was commissioned by the Design Council and tried to capture the “state of the nation” on academic design research in the early part of the last decade. The links and examples are somewhat dated, but the early part of the summary still holds water.
