Call for papers

Journal call for papers from International Journal for Researcher Development

The International Journal for Researcher Development is the first international journal devoted exclusively to the scholarship of researcher development. Its purpose is to further understanding of all aspects of researcher development and related policy and practice across any sector and context, including conceptual issues such as what researcher development is, and (socio-) psychological and socio-cultural issues, such as how it occurs. The interpretation of “researcher” is wide and includes research students and other early career researchers, established researchers, those for whom research is a component of their work, experienced and distinguished researchers, and those who aspire to be researchers.
