Dear all


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 an d 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.


Coverage Includes:

Original empirical research, conceptual analyses, policy analyses, and theoretical perspectives are discussed within the context of researcher development.

- A transparent and stringent peer review ensures that articles are read and adjudicated by leading experts from around the world
