Design management has become a critical facet of corporate management for leveraging strategic and competitive advantages. In order to identify the pattern and the development of design management studies, we investigated contents of the periodical journals published by Design Management Institute (DMI): the Design Management Review and the Academic Review. An in-depth analysis was performed on 64 themes, 722 articles, and 704 authors of these two journals between 1989 and 2005, and the primary research topics and authorship patterns were identified. Based on these findings, several directions for advancing design management studies were suggested.
