The Mission

The Journal of Cooperative Education and Internships is dedicated to the advancement of work-integrated learning, to a strong focus on research associated with work-integrated learning, and the development of a global view of work-integrated learning through the publication of thoughtful and timely articles.

The Journal of Cooperative Education and Internships is the leading international forum for the discussion of issues pertinent to work-integrated learning through cooperative education, internships, and other experiential programs. Researchers and practitioners will find these resources helpful and timely as we strive to disseminate research, best practice, and innovation in work-based learning. JCEI is the flagship publication of the Cooperative Education and Internship Association (CEIA) in full-partnership with the World Association of Cooperative Education (WACE), the Australian Collaborative Education Network (ACEN) and the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE). Our organizations are committed in providing the best resources, both current and archived, on experiential learning.

Manuscripts submitted for consideration for are peer-reviewed for appropriateness, cogency, clarity, technical adequacy and contribution they will make to the literature of work integrated learning.

The Journal is a open access format.  As an author this could give your work a larger potential audience thereby increasing the impact of your work.  Astronomy researchers who made their Astrophysical Journal article open access doubled the citation rate of their articles.  Scientists who chose the open access option when they published in Limnology and Oceanography had approximately three times more downloads of their articles from that journal’s website.  We hope the same will hold true for the Journal of Cooperative Education and Internships.
