Subscribing to the Journal

Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning (WPLL) is published three times a year in April, August and December by The Open University. Prior to 2010, the journal was produced by Staffordshire University.

The WPLL journal has been a paid subscription journal since its inception in 1999 by Staffordshire University. Given the increased importance of agendas driven by the Office for Students and to make the journal more accessible to the academic community, the Editorial Board have decided to make the journal fully open access from 1 January 2023. You can access the journal (current and previous content) here.  Please feel free to share this link with your networks to widen the reader audience. 

If you have been subscribing previously, please ensure you let your managing agent (LM Prenax, EBSCO or other) know so they no longer collect subscriptions from you.  If you have any queries please email
