InformeDesign offers free online human-written summaries of scholarly journal articles in the field of design. The articles it summarizes are seldom themselves free and online. Registered users may comment on the research summaries. The service is sponsored by the American Society of Interior Designers, funded by corporations that sell products to designers (for example, paint and carpet), and hosted by the University of Minnesota. (Thanks to NewsBreaks.) (PS: This is a wonderful service for researchers. Does anyone know of similar services in any other field?)
