We give you the scuttlebutt on academic journals—aiding you in selecting the right journal for publication—in reviews that are sometimes snarky, sometimes lengthy, always helpful. Written by Princeton University graduate students and Wendy Laura Belcher.
For those interested in publishing multidisciplinary articles on early childhood education in Europe, where “early childhood” refers to the period between birth and eight years of age.
European Early Childhood Education Research Journal provides a forum for the publication of original research in early childhood education in Europe. The journal publishes multidisciplinary research that draws from any field relevant to early childhood education, including psychology, sociology, child health, care work, and social work. According to the journal’s statement of scope, the editorial board privileges research that has “a clear application to early childhood education and care policy and practice.” As such, articles in the journal must make explicit claims regarding the nature and extent of applicability of the research presented. Furthermore, the journal specifically seeks research pertaining to early childhood education in Europe. That said, the editors will consider research topics from outside of Europe, provided that the authors demonstrate relevance to the stated aims of the journal’s governing organization, the European Early Childhood Education Research Association.
