We welcome any research approach or type of paper including conceptual, empirical and critical literature reviews. However, we expect high standards of scholarship within the papers. In terms of establishing context, explicating the methods of inquiry, and reporting results that may aid other researchers.

Case Studies

Case Study Criteria

  • Alignment with one or two of the paper track themes
  • Clearly established, credible and relevant context
  • Visual and/or empirical evidence/support
  • Immediacy, applicability and transferability of key insights

Context & problem/opportunity area: In the first part of the case study, please “set the scene,” it is important that authors provide the context and background to the case/story. Outline your own role(s) and expertise. Ensure clarity around why this is an interesting/ problematic/ fun/ exciting area and articulate here what your case will contribute to either the field. If you’re writing about a well-established topic, we’ll be looking for a unique argument or insight. Three important questions to answer in this section are: (i.) what is the central message of the case study; (ii.) what is important, useful, new, or counterintuitive about your idea; (iii.) what academic, professional, or personal experience do you draw on?

The narrative: In this section, you will need to outline/describe your case’s narrative: journey–story–example. Provide as much detail and richness as possible. Use visuals and tables where appropriate (see guidelines). This section becomes ‘the source of your authority’ and it needs to be clear on the work (either your own or others’) your idea(s) build upon or reference.

The key learnings: In the last section of the case study, you will need to expand and elaborate your key learnings. Make sure it becomes clear why managers/designers should know about them. Explain how your learnings/ idea(s) can be applied in a real situation.
