IFHE publishes the refereed International Journal of Home Economics (IJHE). The journal brings together work on all aspects of Home Economics. It features quantitative and qualitative, disciplinary and trans-disciplinary, empirical and theoretical work and includes special editions on key developments. It aims to push the boundaries of theory and research - to seek out new paradigms, models and ways of framing Home Economics.

The journal is published online at the IFHE website and at Informit. To publish an article, contact editor Donna PENDERGAST at intjournalhomeeconomics@gmail.com or visit the IJHE website.
