About the Journal

Scope and Focus


The Journal of Applied Professional Studies (JAPS) is a scholarly blind peer-review online journal that emphasizes applied fields of study with a strong interdisciplinary component and practical experience. The journal is registered at the Library of Congress under ISSN 2694-2577. As the journal's name indicates, "Applied Professional studies" refers to academic disciplines that combine theory and practice-based professional learning while focusing on a body of knowledge that is more rigorously applied and established than non-professional studies. It seeks a reassessment and observation of all applied professional studies. The need for interdisciplinary approaches as a key to reviving and incorporating both theory and practice is the main focus of the journal. 


As research is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary, the journal can provide opportunities for discoveries useful for local, regional, national and international collaboration, ongoing scholarly research and practical approaches to solutions. 


The scope of the journal is also to embrace a variety of scholarly fields including administrative studies, architecture, business and management, communication, counseling, criminal justice, education, health administration, nursing, public administration, psychology, and social work. 


Acceptance for publication is subject to a peer-review process. Authors are expected to write clearly and accessibly for an international audience. No particular theories are favored.
