It is well known that randomization, replication and local control play important role in experimental design. Neighbor designs provide a tool for local control in situation where experimental units are influenced by neighboring units. A neighbor design is called one-dimensional if neighbor effects are controlled in only one way, i.e., either in row or in column direction. In two-dimensional design, neighbor effects are controlled in both ways (rows and columns). In this paper the concept of neighbor designs, its types and importance is discussed with examples. Models of Neighbor effects for different situations are also discussed.
