AIMS AND SCOPE
The Journal of the National Institute for Career Education and Counselling (Print: ISSN 2046-1348 Online: ISSN 2059-4879) is published twice a year in partnership with the Career Development Institute (CDI). The Journal publishes articles on the broad theme of career development in all contexts including:
- Career development in the workplace
- Career development in education
- Career development in the community
The NICEC Journal has a UK and international readership. It is designed to be read by individuals who are involved in career development-related work in a wide range of settings. CDI members receive a copy of the NICEC Journal through the CDI website.
Issue 48, April 2022, is another open issue with papers on any relevant topic, but with a strong interest in articles that consider the impact of Covid-19. This theme follows from the NICEC event on 30 September 2021. See Journal 48 Contents
Issue 47, October 2021, is an issue resulting from an 'open' call for papers. It opens with a contribution from the 2021 winner of the Bill Law Memorial Award, then has eight further contributions reflecting a wide range of career development settings and concerns.
Issue 46, April 2021, is on the theme: Manifestations of Change within Careers 1999 – 2020. Invited contributions provide an update on changes and developments since the publication of Careers Services: History, Policy and Practice in the United Kingdom (Peck, 2004). See Journal 46 Contents

NICEC JOURNAL - CHANGES TO PUBLICATION METHOD
The following statement, from Issue 48, explains changes that come into effect from 01 May 2022. This page will be fully updated as the changes are implemented.
"Issue 48 marks a landmark in the evolution of this Journal. We have moved to an open access platform for electronic format. This means the Journal will be 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 will be 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 Fellows 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."
