CFP: Journal of Play in Adulthood (Open Access Journal)

Journal of Play in Adulthood
Submissions URL:

I'm pleased to announce the new "Journal of Play in Adulthood" now has an open call for papers! 

This new diamond open access journal (free to read and publish in) would welcome papers from library and information literacy practitioners as well as researchers. Research based articles are subject to double blind peer review, but we also welcome articles from practice, extended essays, and reviews that might be of interest to our readers.

Key topics of interest to the journal include the role of play in learning, work, our social and cultural lives, the benefits to individuals and society, and the interrelationship between play and other areas of adult life. The focus of this journal is on play in adulthood to explicitly distinguish it from children’s play, and to highlight that the motivations, contexts, and forms of play are, in many cases, different. In summary, it covers playful living, playful working, and playful learning.

Many thanks,
