Created in 2005 and published by the University of Porto, Laboreal analyses the forms of research and the modes of intervention that have a repercussion on work. This biannual journal covers various issues linked to the management of health and safety at work, vocational and continuing training, the processes of re(designing) equipment and re(organising) human work, and local and regional development. The journal’s publication languages are Portuguese and Spanish. Laboreal is joining OpenEdition with its three latest issues available in full open access.
