Information design research methods book
A rather broad range of activities can be subsumed under information design research. I am limiting my scope to a set of evaluation methods with which I am more familiar: theoretical and empirical methods with outcomes that may contribute to a body of knowledge to underpin practice. The methods are those which evaluate products or aspects of information design. I am excluding research conducted as part of the discovery phase, early in the design cycle. I mention historical research to ensure that this category is included within the eld of information design research. This category is not analysed in any detail but serves as a way of identifying meaningful characteristics of dierent approaches through recognizing similarities and dierences.
