Work Based Learning e-Journal
Publisher: Middlesex University
The main aim of the Work Based Learning e-Journal is to disseminate ideas about work-based learning to professional and academic communities internationally.
The journal accepts both peer reviewed contributions and papers focusing upon work in progress and commentary on key themes associated with Work Based Learning. This bi-annual journal with issues produced in January and July, welcomes contributions on policy development and critique, current and ongoing research and professional practice issues for those engaged broadly in the field of work based learning. This includes practitioners and theorists in professional education and training, Lifelong Learning and Development, Human Resource Management, Organisation Development and Management, and Further and Higher Education practitioners.
The journal is also relevant to those involved in the community and voluntary sectors as well as trade unions and political bodies including peace and emancipatory studies. There is potential for the scope and understanding of work based learning to also include those involved in systems thinking, strategic analysis and corporate governance.
The journal welcomes papers that document research including theoretical and empirical studies in addition to more reflective contributions. New and adaptations to existing research approaches, philosophical perspectives and paradigms are encouraged. Of particular interest are articles that examine work based learning from the position of multiple stakeholders including employers, educators, work based learners and other employees, and the impact on work culture and the wider society.
Work Based Learning e-Journal is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet.
Articles available in PDF format.
