2018 Call for Papers for a General Issue of the NZ International Research in ECE Journal

nzirece journal planManuscripts are now being invited to be submitted for consideration for publication in the next general issue of the New Zealand International Research in Early Childhood Education Journal.

Submissions must be received before or by 5 February, 2018.  Should you need an extension of time please contact the editor. 

The journal publishes research results, critiques, methodological papers and theoretical articles relating to children’s education, wellbeing and care in the early years (from conception and up to eight years of age).

Research relating to teaching and learning, pedagogical approaches, early intervention, parenting, child health, child safety, child development, and teacher/parent education are particularly welcome.

Papers examining a research method, an aspect of methodology, or contributing to the development of theory are also invited.

 

Paper Types

Papers may take the following forms:

1. Article

  • Reporting original research. This is blind peer-reviewed. A report of original research (3,000-5,000 words).
  • Providing an in-depth critical review. This is blind peer-reviewed. A critical in-depth analysis and review of research or theory, which may be in relation to policy and/or practice contexts or issues (3,000-5,000 words)

2. Research Note: This is not normally sent out for blind peer-review but will be reviewed within the editorial team. This option may suit student researchers and first time writers.  It may also suit experienced researchers who would like to share their research or publish an aspect of it, but do not have time to prepare a full article.

A description of an original research project, a description of part of an original project, or a reflective examination of some aspect of the research experience. Initial findings of an ongoing project are also welcomed (up to 2,000 words).

3. Other: Other paper types (such as Research Methods or Ethics papers, Commentaries, and Occasional papers) may be considered by the Editor on an individual basis. Please check and discuss the appropriateness of your paper with the Editor before submitting. These papers are blind peer-reviewed.
Literature reviews are generally not accepted - please do not submit a literature review. However, articles that include critical reviews of literature on a topic and that provide commentary and a new way of looking at a problem or add to the knowledge base may be considered.
