Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies

We have just published our June issue. See the Table of Contents by clicking 'Current' in the bar on top of this page

The Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies is an international, scientific journal on working life, written in English. The journal is curated by an Editorial Board of 8-15 members from Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. The Royal Danish Library, Denmark, is hosting the journal, which is published free for all as Open Access. 

The journal aims to strengthen the exchange of experiences, perspectives, methods and outcomes of the Nordic working life research across the Nordic countries, and promote Nordic working life research internationally.

The mission of the journal is to present studies concerning changes in work and how these changes affect qualifications, health, occupation, innovation, economy, identity, social orientation and culture. The journal aims at an interdisciplinary profile. Most of the articles in the journal have authors from the Nordic countries, but researchers from outside the Nordic region are also invited to contribute to the journal, to the extent that such contributions improve the understanding of Nordic conditions.
