The Journal of Play in Adulthood aims to provide a multidisciplinary open access forum dedicated to the discussion of play and playfulness in adults. 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. It aims to increase understanding of the need for, and benefits of, play and playfulness after childhood, and to create a robust evidence base for the value of play throughout the life course for learning, working, and living well. It also seeks to explore the barriers to the use of play with adults, and potential solutions to increasing the role of play in lifelong education, the workplace, and wider society.

Advances in Chemical Engineering: Student Perspectives

advances in chemical engineering: student perspectives

This open access journal publishes student articles arising from a taught final year MEng module, Recent Advances in Chemical Engineering, at the University of Huddersfield; student-derived articles from similar initiatives at other universities are also welcome. The journal also publishes book reviews written by chemical engineering students. Articles are designed to be of relevance to industry professionals wishing to obtain an overview of a subject area. A major feature of the articles is an emphasis on understanding what is distinctively “chemical engineering” about the advance, in order to elucidate the contributions that chemical engineers might make to this advance, and/or the ways in which the discipline and profession of chemical engineering might need to evolve in response to this advance. These aims serve to give a distinctive perspective on the interface between topical developments and the professional practice and academic discipline of chemical engineering.
