International Journal for Researcher Development
Published/Hosted by Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
Founded at the University of Cambridge in 2008, the International Journal for Researcher Development (IJRD) is the first international journal devoted exclusively to the scholarship of researcher development. Its purpose is to further understanding of all aspects of researcher development and related policy and practice across any sector and context, including conceptual issues such as what researcher development is, and (socio-)psychological and socio-cultural issues, such as how it occurs. The interpretation of ‘researcher’ is wide and includes research students and other early career researchers, established researchers, those for whom research is a component of their work, experienced and distinguished researchers, and those who aspire to be researchers. The journal’s main section, Research and Theory, provides a forum for the dissemination of original empirical research, conceptual analyses, policy analyses, and theoretical perspectives. A two-stage process of rigorous editorial and peer review ensures that articles published in this section meet the highest academic standards, while the Researcher Development in Practice section is intended for the dissemination and discussion of reflective and innovative practice (see Author Guidelines for details). The journal will be of interest to a wide international constituency, including those who are themselves researchers and those with an interest in or responsibility for developing the research capacity and practice of others.
