Abstract: The time-space distribution of conference papers, significant authors, and research themes were studied from three perspectives using the bibliometric method to analyze the research characteristics of DRS conferences. Regarding the papers' time-space distribution, it exhibits a general rising trend in the time sequence and mostly concentrates on the design of inclusion, happiness, and health. In terms of significant authors, two academic communities, one centered on Lancaster University and the other on the Delft University of Technology, were established. Design education, service design, participatory design, inclusive design, design methodology, and social design are the six main research themes that have emerged from DRS research. The main traits of DRS conferences are shaping multiple values, as this study demonstrates.
