Like a camera obscura ... or Let the facts speak about the Journal of Integrated Design & Process Science
This paper presents the findings of a bibliometric survey over the past 25 years of the Journal of Integrated Design & Process Science (JIDPS), which is the flagship publication forum of the Society of Design and Process Science (SDPS). The discussion is of a retrospective, statistical, and narrative nature. The goal of the survey was not only to expose the facts concerning publication statistics, but also to get an insight in the nature of the scientific contribution of the journal as a whole and to identify the target applications domains of the published papers. The paper lets the facts speak for themselves and offers the findings for further evaluation and road-mapping by the concerned stakeholders.
