Publishing is one of ASTD’s largest operations, encompassing the creation and distribution of books, magazines, newsletters, Web pages, and special reports. Through its publications, ASTD leads the field with content that advances new thinking, highlights proven practices, and raises awareness of the value of learning and performance.
For 65 years, the award-winning T+D magazine has heralded and even led the evolution of the profession from training and development to workplace learning and performance—with the purpose to deliver to its readers the emerging trends and proven best practices. Indeed, since its debut in 1947 as the Journal for Industrial Training, what is now called T+D magazine has chronicled the issues and ideas, the pains and passions of a growing profession.
For almost six decades, the magazine has covered the art and science of developing people and the systems in which they work to produce results. From the no-nonsense idealism of the 1940s and ‘50s, through the social consciousness of the ‘60s and ‘70s, to the bottom-line thinking of the 1980s and ‘90s, and on to the technological upheaval of the new millennium, T+D magazine has been the voice of the profession.
Our readers are degreed training and development professionals and line managers. They range from new practitioners to seasoned executives in business, government, academia, and consulting.
