The International Journal on Working Conditions accepts original academic works in the various areas related to working conditions. The publication is subject to a technical-scientific system of blind refereeing, provided by the member of Editorial Board.

lthough there are various conceptualizations and models of analysis about this thematic, we assume working conditions as a concept that refers to all elements that contribute to define the circumstances in which workers do their work. That is the term takes into account all aspects that influence directly or indirectly the exercise of a particular occupation, starting from the organizational context in which that activity is carried out, without losing of sight the dialectic that sets and resets at each moment between this context and the external environment.

Below there is a list of topics that will be considered in the journal:
