Call for Papers

NJVET has a continuous open call for papers within the aims and scope of the journal. In addition to this, there could be calls for papers on specific themes, where articles are brought together for publication as a virtual special issue. Researchers willing to act as guest editors for such a special issue are welcome to contact the editor with their proposals. As an author you are invited to submit any paper that is related to the aims and scope of the journal, or when there is a special call for papers in relation to its specific theme. See Instructions for authors for more information about how to submit a paper.
The journal includes three types of publications:
a) Research articles that will be subject to double-blind peer review.
b) Magazine articles concerning vocational education and training that are published in a separate section.
c) Book reviews.

Special issue

Technology-mediated learning in VET. Perspectives on changing educational landscapes in the 21st century

The challenges and opportunities of a digitalised era when it comes to the planning, implementation and evaluation of educational practices have been focused upon in research and by policy makers over the last decades. Digital technologies have been framed in terms of an educational panacea for a rather long time envisaging the implementation of so called digital innovations in schools and other professional arenas as the solutions to a wide range of issues, from inclusion to accessibility and equity, to growing efficiency and marketisation. Digitalisation is seen as playing an important role in creating open, inclusive participation.
We are mainly interested in studies that focus on social interaction and/or curriculum development and practice-based/action research and reports on development projects (the latter will not go through a double-blind peer-review process). Research that focus on textual data, for instance, literature, curriculum, historical data are also elicited.

Abstracts should be submitted by 15 September 2018. Notification of acceptance and editors’ feedback will be sent out by the end of October. The deadline for the first draft of the articles is 31 March 2019.
