JOD has had a very successful year so far in 2017. The journal is publishing at a rate of at least one article per month, a requirement for obtaining an impact factor in the future. The Organization Zoo series is attracting attention, and several recent articles have received a large number of hits shortly after publication. Springer’s efforts to market JOD are paying off. Further, the number of citations is growing including many Web-of Science citations. JOD is doing particular well for a new Opens Access Journal. We encourage you to read JOD, and if you write a design-related paper, please consider submitting it to JOD.
