Advanced Journal of Professional Practice (AJPP)

ISSN: 2059-3198 (online)


Advanced Journal of Professional Practice (AJPP) is an open-access, double-blind, peer-reviewed international journal published by the University of Kent, United Kingdom (UK), established to provide a platform for the dissemination of new knowledge or innovation of a work-related professional practice nature, and created for the advancement of Professional Practice.

The Journal acts as a repository for all those working in professional roles to extend their knowledge and skills by offering new insights and practical advancements in the development of effective, competent and safe professional practice, particularly in a transdisciplinary capacity. The growing need for effective integration of work-related innovation and collaboration between professionals, agencies, providers and above all, the communities they serve, poses a significant challenge to preparing the workforce of the future, and AJPP provides an academic reference point for sharing experiences and information as to how this can best be achieved in the delivery of gold standard practice.

As such, AJPP has a specific remit for publishing contemporary, trans-disciplinary research, with the aim of extending the knowledge and skills of professionals working in practice across a variety of settings and disciplines. Applications of new knowledge, technology, discussion, research or practice-based innovation or reflection, are particularly welcome, especially submissions that achieve the following:

  • Offer a critical discussion of any area of contemporary professional practice;
  • Describe applications of research findings, innovation or other initiative to an area of professional practice, and which could be applied by analogy to other disciplines;
  • Join together trans-disciplinary activities in relation to professional practice;
  • Explore the inter-relationship of professional practice;
  • Contribute to recent developing conversations within professional practice;
  • Offer unexpected, surprising and creative innovations within a professional practice context; and
  • Emphasise a professional work-related application.


Book reviews, poster abstracts and supplementary papers are also welcome. Contributions from professionals engaged across all faculties and in all manner of technical, scientific, clinical, manual and/or administrative roles or work-related activity are encouraged.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: Health and Social Care; Education, Teaching & Learning; Human Resources; Social Sciences; Humanities; Science and Engineering; Professional Services; Ethics and Law and any other area related to professional practice.

If the subject matter is related to professional practice or work-based enquiry, then submissions will be accepted from both undergraduate and postgraduate students, to offer them a portal for publishing their dissertation findings.

AJPP is DOI indexed and fully inclusive.

Open Access Policy: AJPP provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports greater global exchange of knowledge.
