As an interdisciplinary field, playwork practice draws on a diverse range of disciplines for its theoretical and technical foundations. International Journal of Playwork Practice provides an international forum for the publication of peer-reviewed research relevant to the practice of playwork, as well as practitioner contributions from around the world. This makes IJPP an invaluable resource for anybody interested in the theory and practice of children's leisure time.
Journal of Playwork Practice was published by Policy Press from 2014 -2018. Following feedback from the growing playwork field, the International Journal of Playwork Practice is now published as an on-line open access journal. The Editorial Board hopes that this will support playwork practitioners to access relevant research and to encourage academics who want to increase the impact of their research to submit their work to IJPP.
