Nordic Journal of Vocational Education and Training

The Nordic Journal of Vocational Education and Training (NJVET) invites original, scholarly articles that discuss the vocational and professional education and training, of young people as well as adults, from different academic disciplines, perspectives and traditions. It encourages diversity in theoretical and methodological approach and submissions from different parts of the world.

All published research articles in NJVET are subjected to a rigorous peer review process based on two moments of selection: an initial editorial screening and a double-blind review by at least two anonymous referees. Clarity and conciseness of thought are crucial requirements for publication. NJVET previously had a policy of single-blind review. The present policy was introduced in 2015.

NJVET is published on behalf of Nordyrk, a Nordic network for vocational education and training, and with support from NOP-HS and from the Swedish Research Council.

NJVET accepts submissions in English, Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish. To broaden the international readership, Nordic researchers are encouraged to submit and publish their contributions in English.

All articles in NJVET are open access and there are no submission charges or charges for article processing.

NJVET is included in DOAJ, the Directory of Open Access Journals.
The journal is also accredited on level 1 according to the Norwegian accreditation of scientific journals, in the Finnish Publication Forum, and on the Danish BFI series list:

Call for papers: Special issue

The Special Issue aims to develop knowledge about how teaching in the vocational classroom can create productive conditions for students’ vocational learning and the development of students’ vocational knowledge in vocational subject areas. We especially welcome contributions that address vocational (subject) didactic perspectives on teaching and learning in the vocational classroom; for example, this may concern vocational learning and vocational knowledge, embodied and material aspects, writing in the vocational classroom, practice-based school research, feedback/assessment in vocational subjects, and the relationship between theory and practice.

In collaboration with the editorial group of Nordic Journal of Vocational Education and Training, Stig-Börje Asplund, together with Nina Kilbrink and Ann-Britt Enochsson, Karlstad University, will act as guest editors. Through this open call, we hereby invite submissions of abstracts of proposed articles to the Nordic Journal of Vocational Education and Training. The abstract must be written in English and contain a short description of the problem area being addressed, purpose and eventual research questions, as well as theory/method, and preliminary results of a maximum of 750 words. The abstract should be sent as an attachment via e-mail to Stig-Börje Asplund (stig-borje.asplund@kau.se).
