Sustainability or green design is an area of growing concern for many design researchers from a wide range of experiences and disciplines, including graphic designers, architects, design theorists, environmental designers, artists, students and educators. These researchers are exploring the topic of sustainability through discourse, studies, and reflection—defining what sustainable design currently means and potentially means as a new, interdisciplinary design profession.

Sustainability Research by Designers: An Anthology is an interdisciplinary volume featuring written sustainability research by accomplished design practitioners, researchers, and educators selected from the recognized peer-reviewed scholarly journals Design Principles & Practices: An International Journal; The International Journal of the Arts in Society; The International Journal of Environmental, Cultural, Economic & Social Sustainability; The International Journal of the Humanities; and The International Journal of Technology, Knowledge & Society.
