The Labor Studies Journal is the official journal of the United Association for Labor Education (UALE, www.uale.org). It is a multi-disciplinary journal covering issues related to work, workers, labor organizations, and labor studies and worker education in the US and internationally, including
- Union organizing strategies
- Labor movement revitalization
- New forms of worker representation (labor centers, etc.)
- Race, gender and “identity” issues and labor
- Immigration and labor
- Globalization and labor
- Labor and political trends
- International labor movements
- Labor education practices and approaches
- Labor and the evolving economy
In addition to articles about the United States labor movement and workforce, LSJ welcomes submissions that are international and comparative. We are interested in foreign based authors who are writing about relevant subject matter in non-US countries, which have significant international or comparative implications for labor studies.
LSJ is interested in manuscripts using a diversity of research methods, both qualitative and quantitative that use ethnographic, theory-building, and formal econometric modeling. The Journal publishes empirical research in order to advance theory that expands understanding and analysis of the field of labor studies. LSJ welcomes innovative and new approaches to the study of workers directed at a general audience including union, university, and community based- labor educators, labor activists, and scholars from across the social sciences and humanities.
The Journal also includes a variety of sections such as:
- reviews on relevant books, audio-visual, and electronic materials
- a forum for discussion of issues about work and labor
- a non-refereed section highlighting innovations in labor education and labor practice
The Labor Studies Journal is the official journal of the United Association for Labor Education and is a multi-disciplinary journal publishing research on work, workers, labor organizations, and labor studies and worker education in the US and internationally.
The Journal is interested in manuscripts using a diversity of research methods, both qualitative and quantitative, directed at a general audience including union, university, and community based labor educators, labor activists and scholars from across the social sciences and humanities. As a multi-disciplinary journal, manuscripts should be directed at a general audience, and care should be taken to make methods, especially highly quantitative ones, accessible to a general reader. The Journal also reviews relevant books, audio-visual, and electronic materials. In addition, a forum for discussion of issues about work and labor is also included, as is a non-refereed section highlighting innovations in labor education.
