The International Journal of Training Research (ISSN 1448-0220) is published three times a year by eContent Management on behalf of the Australian Vocational Education and Training Research Association (AVETRA).
The International Journal of Training Research (IJTR) publishes articles which advance our knowledge and understanding of vocational education and training in the Asia Pacific, OECD member countries and developing economies. The journal focuses on current or recently completed research and reviews of research in vocational education and training.
The journal publishes articles that address the interests of researchers, educators, trainers, policy-makers, skills capacity planners, and undergraduate and postgraduate students in vocational education and training. Papers in the refereed section of the journal have been blind, peer refereed by at least two members from a pool of specialist reviewers from Australia and overseas. In addition, articles may be submitted for the practice section, and these articles are single, blind reviewed.
The International Journal of Training Research (ISSN 1448-0220) began as the Journal of TAFE Research and Development in the early 1980s when it was published by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research in Adelaide. In 1992, the journal changed its focus and name to the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Vocational Education Research (ISSN 1039-4001) under the editorship of Professor John Stevenson (Griffith University) and published by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER). In 2002, the journal underwent a further transformation, changing its name to the International Journal of Training Research (ISSN 1448-0220), and passing to AVETRA as the leading national body representing VET researchers.
AVETRA was established in 1997 with initial financial assistance from the Australian National Training Authority Research Advisory Council and receives support from the NCVER. AVETRA is Australia's only national, independent association for research in vocational education and training, bringing together research stakeholders and researchers from the VET/TAFE, university, industry and government sectors.
With a substantial and growing membership, it is committed to:
- furthering the contribution of VET research to the development of Australian VET policy
- independently reviewing VET research priorities
- promoting independent and significant research in VET, with due regard for the intellectual property rights of researchers
- raising the profile of VET research in the academic and training communities
- promoting training in research methods for those working in or with the VET sector
- providing platforms for the dissemination of research findings.
AVETRA membership is open to any individual who is engaged in, or has an interest in, VET research and its results. AVETRA members include:
- TAFE and university-based researchers
- training managers
- industry-based trainers and managers
- VET decision-makers.
