THE AIM AND SCOPE:The recent years witnessed spreading of TRIZ around the globe. It was created by generations of enthusiasts groupped around G.S. Altshuller since the 1950s to 1980s and aiming at laying down the foundation of a new science. However, in the 1980s the enthusiasts and the real TRIZ scientists were pushed away by the people rushing to reap the commercial profit from as yet not mature discipline. Not surprisingly, therefore, that to the English speaking world TRIZ came as a commercial enterprise (not very successful, however). The public research died. Instead, the commercial editions emerged run by strangers to TRIZ and not by seasoned TRIZ researchers. The most noticeable one is the so called TRIZ Journal (www.triz-journal.com).

The purpose of our journal is to exorcise this phenomenon. That is why, it is not Anti-TRIZ journal but rather Anti Triz-journal. All real TRIZniks are invited to contribute.

Another goal is a proper TRIZ education. In this respect, most of artciles published in the TRIZ-journal is an indispensable source of various TRIZ errors and mistakes. By criticizing the articles and showcasing the underlying errors, we are going to educate the public in the real TRIZ.
