The journal will especially strengthen the students and younger researcher’s possibilities for publishing professional knowledge, emanating from e.g. dissertations, larger written assignments or courses where the teacher and student have collaborated on researching an issue. It is thus also the journals task to stimulate the visibility and results of research-based teaching as well as teaching-based research, benefitting researchers, students and the outside world. The journal publishes both interdisciplinary and single subject contributions.
The journal is peer reviewed.

Submission of articles
The journal is published twice a year and the deadlines for submission are March 1st (for publishing in spring) and September 1st (for publishing in fall).

The eleventh edition is published.
The journal accepts contributions in Scandinavian languages as well as English. Authors must be assured of the lingual correctness of the article before submission.
Articles must have a length of 5.000-7.000 words, including abstracts and references. The abstracts must be in English and Danish, and have a length of 80-100 words.
The journal will only publish articles that have not previously been published and by submitting an article the author acknowledges the journal’s right to publishing.
The editorial board reserves the right to reject contributions not complying with the formalities or not in accordance with the subjects of the journal.
For the peer review the articles must be made anonymous. This implies that the author must both register at the journal’s website and here specify the name(s) and contact information of the author(s), and also upload the article where the identity of the author(s) must not be visible.
