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.

NOTE: On October 16, 2014, The CEIA Board of Directors voted to retire the Journal of Cooperative Education and Internships in terms of accepting future submissions and publishing further issues. This decision was difficult, however the demographics of the membership have changed and the board is reviewing the focus of the organization in relation to member needs. The Board made the decision after consulting many stakeholders including past editors, editorial board members and journal contributors. Recognizing the legacy that all contributors have left through their scholarship and research, CEIA is committed to protecting the stability and integrity of the archives and preserving open access to all for the future.
