Author guidelines and policies


This is an open access publication, freely accessible to all via the internet. 

The Journal is now hosted by the Open Journal Systems (OJS) platform. Current issues and the full back catalogue are available and searchable. This includes issues in the period 2000-2010 (Issues 1-25), when this publication went under its previous name of Career Research and Development: The NICEC Journal. 

We hope that open access will bring the work of NICEC to a wider audience. We will continue to offer opportunities to career development practitioners, research students, and new voices in the field, to publish alongside established academics.  

From 2023 onwards the print format of the Journal has been discontinued.
