The Labor Studies Journal is the official journal of the United Association for Labor Education (UALE). It is a multi-disciplinary journal which seeks submissions based on research about 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.
