Journal history

Previously published as Journal of European Industrial Training
Follow the Table of Contents link above for previous content.

Editorial objective

The journal aims to provide all those involved in research and practice in training with ideas, news, research findings, case examples and discussion on training and development. The journal focuses primarily on activity in Europe, although draws on insights from the rest of the world where they are seen to make an appropriate contribution.

Editorial criteria

Contributors should always endeavour to spell out the practical implications of their work for those involved in training. Case study articles should normally specify:

  • background and context;
  • the objectives of the training programme or initiative;
  • the salient events of the programme or initiative;
  • the results, and how they were obtained;
  • the implications for others involved in training and development

European Journal of Training and Development does not publish articles which have been published previously in English. The Editor may consider an article which has previously been published in another language. In such cases, the author must make this clear.


  • Globalisation and HRD
  • Blended learning and e-Learning
  • Talent Management and HRD
  • Call centres, contact centres and service centres
  • Corporate strategy, culture and HRD
  • The European labour market
  • Management education innovations
  • Regional insight into small firm's training initiatives
  • European approaches to HRD
  • Employee engagement in HRD


Every issue of the journal puts the reader right in the midst of the latest thinking. Whatever your area of interest, chances are you will find it discussed, in depth. EJTD concentrates on those training requirements unique to the industrial sector. However, the important topics aren't limited to Europe. Where applicable, global examples are presented too.

Recent Special Issues

Competence-based training for career development (Volume 41, Issue 1) - Guest Editors: Ricardo Sartori and Giuseppe Tacconi. In this special issue, the aim of this special issue is to link the concepts of competence, training and career development by articles from different countries.

Key benefits

All the articles in EJTD are refereed to ensure academic rigour, so you'll only read about relevant and thorough research which has a practical edge, or get an insight into case histories from major European industrial organizations. By tapping into the experience of other training professionals, subscribers discover what's working, what isn't - and what they can do to keep ahead.

Because it's published in paper format and online, EJTD offers current information on training in Europe. Both the latest and back issues can be searched for a chosen subject, in seconds.    

Unique attributes

Creating training strategies is much easier when you have an insight into the work of the world's leading experts. But you can't always attend every international conference or symposium... and general management and training journals don't provide the level of detail you need.

European Journal of Training and Development is the only publication which has the information training professionals are looking for, complete with the models they need and all the appropriate references. EJTD features the thoughts and research of academics and practitioners who are leading the revolution in workplace education, making it easy to compare your theories with those of other professionals in the field.
