EAPRIL works together with educational journals for Special Issues to offer insights in practitioner research, our members can enjoy access to Frontline Learning Research and projects with international institutions for education resulted in interesting publications.
EAPRIL published two special issues in the last two years together with educational journals Vocations and Learning and UAS Journal. Both publications are a collection of papers within the field of practitioner research and bring together research and practice in a specific domain.

Frontline Learning Research
Frontline Learning Research is an open-access electronic-only journal that publishes articles on issues and trends occurring internationally in research on learning and educational sciences. Among others, the journal focuses on articles in the following fields of research: Research on learning and instruction in formal and informal contexts, multidisciplinary research on learning and learning environments, new theoretical and methodological approaches in learning sciences, insights into learning research from disciplines other than educational sciences or psychology (e.g., cognitive neuroscience, computer science, philosophy, sociology).

EAPRIL aims to contribute to the corporate learning practice by developing projects with inspiring results that can be put in practice. Our first project in this endeavour was a collaboration with the University of Maastricht, the Netherlands, which resulted in the European Learning Compass, an overview of learning analytics on a European level. a second project was realised in cooperation with 7 students in educational sciences at the University of Leuven, Belgium. This project is based on the results of the first European Learning Compass, which indicated the need for more tools to develop and measure informal learning in practice. The Informal Learning Guide was the result of this project.
