Aims & Scope

The Nordic Journal of Vocational Education and Training (NJVET) is a refereed academic journal creating a forum for the publication of critical research on vocational and professional education and training. It has a particular focus on issues at stake for vocational education and training in the Nordic countries, as these emerge in connection with wider international and transnational dynamics and trends.

NJVET invites original, scholarly articles that discuss the vocational and professional education and training, of young people as well as of 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. In addition to this, other relevant articles and information concerning vocational and professional education and training are welcome, and are published in a separate magazine section. Submissions of relevant book reviews are also welcome.

NJVET publishes articles under a continuous publication model, which makes the articles available online as they become ready. This means that the articles will be available online and can be cited immediately without waiting until a new volume and issue is ready.

NJVET is published on behalf of Nordyrk, a Nordic network for vocational education and training.

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.

There are no submission charges or article processing charges.

Note: NJVET previously had a policy of single-blind review. The present policy was introduced during 2015.
