Research Online contains abstracts of books, reports and journal articles which address labour market issues such as:

  • learning and skills
  • workforce development
  • migration
  • equal opportunities
  • entrepreneurship
  • helping people into work.

Research Online focuses on labour market issues in Scotland, but also includes material that looks at relevant issues from a wider UK, European or international perspective. The service was launched in 2003, though it includes a small amount of older material. It is updated at least twice every month. Where copyright allows, items are available for download directly from the site. Links are provided for documents downloadable from other websites. Research Online allows you to search for specific terms and also to browse through the records by subject.
