Sponsor: Thoughts Guiding Systems Corporation Editor-in-Chief: Yevgeny B. Karasik, Ph.D.

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

The purpose of this 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. (Read the policies of the journal first, however.)

Another goal is a proper TRIZ education. In this respect, most articles published in TRIZ-journal are the 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.
