Professions and Professionalism (P&P) is an open-access journal that invites research-based empirical, theoretical or synoptic articles focusing on traditional professions as well as other knowledge based occupational groups approached from any perspective or discipline.
Based in a Nordic context, characterized by prioritizing no single theoretical horizon or methodological approach, the journal creates a space for development of the research field. All articles will be peer-reviewed.
The journal is supported by the Nordic Publisher for Humanities and Social Sciences (NOP-HS).
Call for papers: We welcome submissions for subsequent issues.
