25 years of VOCEDplus


In September 1989, two print publications, Initiatives in Technical and Further Education and TAFE projects in progress, were incorporated to become the Vocational Education and Training Research Database, the first incarnation of VOCEDplus. It was originally produced as a quarterly print publication with an electronic version distributed on diskettes. The database first went online in 1997. Today, VOCEDplus contains over 63,000 items (with more than 34,000 in full text online) and receives an average of 30,000 visits each month from over 200 different countries.
