Article
Full-text available
This paper explores Oscar Newman’s Defensible Space (1972) concept of geographical juxtaposition (GJ) highlighting a significant lack of research within the criminological literature over the last 50 years. We argue the concept is a key foundation in understanding crime and crime prevention theories and in developing crime prevention strategies. Fi...
Chapter
Much has been written about Aboriginal night patrols in recent decades; this has typically been ethnographic or evaluative. However, little work has been done to situate night patrols against wider historic trends in criminal justice and theorize their contribution in relation to neoliberal regimes of justice. Drawing on data collected as part of a...
Article
Full-text available
This article presents policy, practice and theory implications of a case study of a youth curfew. The original case study of the Northbridge Policy Project set out to document the purposes of the Northbridge Policy, how policy was implemented, and to evaluate the effectiveness of this approach as a generalised response to child welfare and youth cr...
Article
Full-text available
This article presents a typology of different approaches to social crime prevention adopted by Australian Indigenous youth night patrols. Research that informed this typology occurred in a specific context, but generic observations about youth crime prevention policy are transferable to community youth crime prevention in other settings. The typolo...

Article
Full-text available
This paper identifies and describes two issues, 'Design Guideline Gap' and '2 Feedback Loop Limitation' that expose problems in the Design and Emotion theory and more widely challenge the validity of design theory, research findings and design practices. The paper describes the issues by way of examples, draws out the implications for emotion-relat...
Article
In response to the sustainability agenda, planning policy in the UK, USA and Australia has shifted to promote compact, high-density, mixed-used residential developments in walkable and permeable street networks close to public transport (Commonwealth of Australia, 1995; DETR, 1998; American Planning Association, 2007). This is to encourage walking...
Article
Full-text available
This paper describes research investigating why the extensive effort in Design and Emotion research and publications has not had more significant effect in improving design theory and practice in spite of the large amounts of funding expended, the number of research projects and research centers and the large number of publications. The analyses po...
Article

This paper reports research into the application of Ashby's Law of Requisite Variety to assist with identifying optimal choices of design solutions at the pre-design stage of designing digital ecosystems. This study of the application of Ashby's Law is a component of a larger research program investigating the application of classical systems analy...
Article
Full-text available
Public transport throughout the world is a venue for crime and anti-social behaviour. The spaces in and around railway stations are places where people gather, especially young people, for casual social interaction or 'hanging out' (National Crime Prevention, 1999). Frequently the behaviour of the groups of young people is loud, possibly 'anti-soci...
Article

This paper reports the main findings of an exploratory investigation into the key factors necessary to designing information systems for online portfolio-based assessment in tertiary, professional, secondary and primary education that maximize benefits for all stakeholders. A review of contemporary practice in designing online portfolio assessment...
Article
This paper applies new empirically-based knowledge in the area of constituent market orientation to a seven-element taxonometric model of virtual organisation. The most effective distribution of resources and management attention in the development of combinations of real and virtual business solutions is identified for each of the seven alternativ...
Article
Full-text available
This paper focuses on theory making about ‘design’ and ‘social process’. Building sound extensible theories about design and social process is important because of the essential roles that design teams, as social organisations, play in innovation and knowledge creation processes. Developed and developing countries alike regard these innovation and...
Article
Full-text available
This paper challenges the widespread myth that Systems is sufficient to create a design or plan for intervention. It argues that conflating Systems and Design has caused many unnecessary difficulties in Systems theory and research. The paper redefines the relationships between Systems and Design.

The paper explores how portfolio-based assessment, particularly its online forms, can address some of the challenges presented by new trends in tertiary education in fast changing subject areas such as Information Systems
Article
This paper focuses on the structure and dynamic of theory in design research. Problems with existing theory are explored, and a new meta-theoretical method is suggested for assisting the critical analysis, comparison and formulation of design theories and concepts. This meta-theoretical method contributes to building a simplifying paradigm of desig...
Article
The use of Bastic model of cognition for the computerization of human design cognition is discussed. It is stated that the design computing is based on rational cognition of the physical attributes of design situations in which non-rational human factors are quantified and included as physical quantities. The model maps all data and knowledge relev...
Article
Full-text available
Pedestrian Access Ways (PAWs) continue to present a significant and unresolved challenge to transport planners in local and State government. The responses by local and State government have often been piecemeal and have frequently resulted in tensions between civic constituencies, high levels of administrative cost, adverse publicity, reduced tran...
Article
Full-text available
This paper describes partial findings from a 3-year design research project exploring the role and dynamics of national design infrastructures. The long-term aim is a fully-functional quantitative system dynamic model of the effects of design infrastructure on national innovation and socio-economic development outcomes. The analyses are ongoing. Th...
Article
Full-text available
Understanding the needs of those who use products is a core part of design research. This paper describes research suggesting the usual concept of 'user need' is overly restrictive. The research points to the widespread practices in which people use designed artefacts as 'tools' to design their own lives. This use of designed products as design too...
Article
Full-text available
This paper describes why a single theoretical perspective is unlikely to be sufficient for PhD level research in the field of Design. A description of the theoretical perspective from which the research is undertaken, and justification as to why it has been chosen are essential aspects of a PhD thesis. Research in some disciplines, however, involve...
