»Focus and Scope

DATJournal is a publication of the Graduate Program in Design (Master, and
Doctorate), from Anhembi Morumbi University. The acronym DAT refers to Design,
Art, and Technology - the program's central concern. The publication forms part of
continuity of work carried out since 2005 in the collection of the DAMT and DAT
editions. This material is available at:
http://ppgdesign.anhembi.br/datjournal/index.php/dat/arquivos
We are currently experiencing a time marked by rich theoretical-practical production
in Design, Art, and Technology, that needs to be considered and disseminated. The
DATJournal selects for publication reflections and discussions within this interface. It
adopts a transdisciplinary perspective that supports a diversity of scope, objects of
study and approaches in these fields of research.
The DATJournal is permanently open for submissions and does not charge for either
article processing fees (APC) or article submission fees. Authors must have an
ORCID identifier (Open Researcher and Contributor ID). Normally an author is
required to have a PhD, although an author with a Masters degree may submit work if
the article is co-authored by a writer who holds a doctorate.

»Peer Review Process

The scope of articles submitted to the DATJournal are considered initially after a
preliminary examination by its editors. Texts considered as having potential for
publication are sent for critical evaluation by two blind reviewers, and in this process
the authors' anonymity is ensured. In cases of disagreement after deliberation on the
opinions of these two reviewers, a proposed article may be sent to a third, independent
reviewer.
Final approval for publication of the article is subject to the following criteria:
- Favorable recommendation of the arbitrators;
- Full compliance with the corrections/adjustments requested by the publishers.

»Frequency

DATJournal is a biannual publication.

»Free Access Policy

DATJournal provides immediate free access to its content, following the principle that
providing free scientific knowledge provides for a greater global democratization of
knowledge.
