There is a great deal of activity in design theory, coding theory and cryptography and recently there has been considerable research done which brings together more than one of the subjects. Designs, Codes and Cryptography provides a forum for high quality papers of both a theoretical and a practical nature which bridge more than one of these areas, encouraging interaction between them. It emphasizes the algebraic and geometric aspects of design theory, coding theory and cryptography.

The journal is widely read by engineers, mathematicians, computer scientists and others in education, industry and government.
