Tertiary interior design courses incorporating the equivalent of four years education aim to provide students with the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and values needed to practice as professional interior designers. In doing this, the various universities recognise the parameters and elements of professionalism formalised by the International Federation of Interior Designers and Interior Architects (IFI) and correspondingly endorsed by the Design Institute of Australia (DIA), a member organisation of IFI and professional organisation for design professionals in Australia.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
