Design, art and
communication are evaluated together since they are interdisciplinary
fields. It is not possible to understand design as a mode of
communication without considering design theories and design principles.
The design works that do not have an artistic point of view and/or the
art works that do not have design principles and design theories can not
exist. In addition to these, art or design is known as a communication
activity. As a result these three fields are intertwined and essential
for one another.
Tojdac, which was first
published after Visualist 2012 International Congress on Visual Culture
at Istanbul Kültür University, is an online journal that publishes
original research papers and solicits review articles on developments in
these three fields. The scientific board consists of the Visualist 2012
In this context, Tojdac is
qualified as an “international peer-reviewed journal”. It is a
peer-reviewed international journal published four times a year. Each
volume has a different theme and a guest editor. Themes and subheads
that are chosen under the main topic of “Design, Art and Communication”
are determinants in choosing and publishing articles.
The aim of Tojdac is to
create a source for academics and scientists who are doing research in
the arts, design and communication that feature formally well-written
quality works. And also create a source that will contribute and help
develop the fields of study.
Accordingly, Tojdac’s intentions are on publishing articles and scientific works which are guided by a scientific quality sensibility.
