The Journal of Workplace Learning aims to provide an avenue for the presentation and discussion of research related to the workplace as a site for learning. Its scope encompasses formal, informal and incidental learning in the workplace for individuals, groups and teams, as well as work-based learning, and off-the-job learning for the workplace. This focus on learning in, from and for the workplace also brings with it questions about the nature of interventions that might assist the learning process and of the roles of those responsible directly or indirectly for such interventions. Since workplace learning cannot be considered without reference to its context, another aim of the journal is to explore the organisational, policy, political, resource issues and other factors which influence how, when and why that learning takes place.
Contributions are welcomed from academics and researchers, as well as from practitioners and consultants in workplace training and learning, those who supervise or manage the training/learning function, and from workplace learners themselves.
It is expected that articles published in the journal will be based on research, and will incorporate careful presentation of data, and thoughtful analysis and discussion, rather than comprise mere description or synthesis of existing literature, and will also cater for an international audience.
All contributors are encouraged to spell out the practical implications and relevance of their work for those involved in supervising, facilitating or undertaking workplace learning.
Articles will be considered for publication only if they have not been published, submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere.
The productivity challenges which affect employees at an individual level- where personal and business issues meet-constitute a particularly ambiguous area in the world of work. This journal aims to show how both the organization and the employee stand to benefit from a considered approach to workplace learning and individual development.
The journal features a variety of material, ranging from conceptualized papers and theoretical development, to practical applications and case examples. Each article is set in the context of assisting the individual to maximize opportunities and performance within the working environment.
Journal of Workplace Learning is available as part of an online subscription to the Emerald HR, Learning & Organizational Studies eJournals Collection.
