Part of the Design Research Foundations book series (DERF)


The corpus we have been using in this book consists of PhD dissertations done in the constructive vein. It has been divided into primary and secondary categories. The reason lies in the history of the book. It started from a series of papers by the first author. For those papers, his primary corpus was mostly Scandinavian, but he had added a few cases from other countries that had shaped work.
