The aim of the WBL e-Journal International is to disseminate research about work-based learning and professional practice to professional and academic communities internationally.
The journal welcomes submissions based on theoretical and empirical studies in addition to more reflective contributions. 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.
The WBL e-Journal International is an open access journal. It provides free and open access to all readers through the internet. There is no subscription fee and interested readers can read, download, print, search or link to the full text of articles in this Journal. The Journal publishes one or two issues per year.
Possible topics for exploration could involve knowledge management and power within organisations; the position of the individual and opportunities for learning and reflective self-development that can inform practice; Leadership and followership and the potential for transformative change, based upon critical and analytical interrogation of praxis; the nature, role and influence of professional, regulatory and mediatory bodies in building convivial work based learning relationships
Submissions to the main section of the journal are subject to a double blind peer review.Contributions in this section are original research focusing on key themes associated with Work Based Learning. Contributions in the section ‘Dialogue and Debates’ are reviewed by the editorial board, but not peer-reviewed. Opinion pieces, book reviews, interviews and work in progress is welcome in this section.
We publish a selection or project summaries (length 1,000-2,000 words) from doctoral candidates in the fields of interest to the journal.
Mindful of the potential for more in-depth work related research and understanding, this journal actively encourages further debate around the perspectives of gender relationships, age, equality and ethnicity based themes. Contributions are invited from novice and established researchers and practitioners, educationalists, and decision makers. Please feel free to contact the editorial team if you would like to discuss a specific theme. Enquiries can be sent to the Journal Administrator [firstname.lastname@example.org]. We look forward to hearing from you!
