The International Practice Development Journal is an online journal with a vision, over the next five years, of becoming the first choice publication for academics and practitioners working in the practice development field internationally. Our commitment is to publish and make freely accessible, scholarly inquiry into practice development and related fields, and expand the international community of practitioners, educators and academics working in the area of practice development. Our aim is to publish material that challenges assumptions and provokes new visions and ideas, helping health care workers engage in dialogue about the contribution practice development makes to health care services and academia.
We also want to enable novice writers to publish their practice development work in a scholarly way. In order to achieve this, we will be encouraging the formation of writing partnerships between novice and more experienced writers; and, we may be able to help with the identification of potential partnerships.
The journal was launched in June 2011. Issues will be published twice a year in May and November.
Submission deadlines for Volume 4 are: 15th January 2014 (Vol. 4 No. 1) and 2nd July 2014 (Vol. 4 No. 2)
