EAPRIL publishes its own conference proceedings and blog. We collaborate with educational journals for Special Issues to offer insights in practitioner research.

All EAPRIL members also enjoy access to Frontline Learning Research, the open access journal of EARLI, our sister association.


EAPRIL offers a blog platform to everyone interested in practice-based research. On a regular basis blogs and vlogs by European Practitioner-researchers are published. Please be invited to share your reflections and/or to read our blog and vlog contributions.

If you wish to contribute to the EAPRIL Blog, have an interesting suggestion for a topic or theme, or would like to suggest a colleague to contribute, please do let us know at All contributions are welcomed!

These proceedings are not peer-reviewed, but offer you an opportunity to share your findings with colleagues in the field of practitioner research.

Special Issues
