About the Journal
Journal of Childhood, Education & Society (JCES) is an international double-blind peer-reviewed journal that accepts research and critical review articles in English, and it is published three times per year open-access.
JCES intends to provide a medium for sharing interdisciplinary research studies that focus on childhood internationally, and the implications of this work for social and educational practices in collaboration with researchers, practitioners, and policymakers. In this way, this journal publishes both qualitative and quantitative research and critical review articles on childhood from developmental, pedagogical, and sociological areas. Also, the research and review articles that link theory and practice, and produce informative resources for educators, practitioners, and policymakers are our current priority and are particularly welcome.
JCES emphasizes the importance of studying childhood from an interdisciplinary perspective. Therefore, we are likely to accept papers on qualified interdisciplinary studies including but not limited to the following areas of interest:
1) child development across ages (birth through 8 years of age) and different contexts,
2) early childhood education, policymaking, curricula development,
3) early childhood special education,
4) best classroom practices and professional development for educators and practitioners,
5) early childhood family studies, intervention programs, and
6) early childhood and social studies.
The Editors and Editorial Board Members encourage the submission of relevant, high-quality papers. We also occasionally consider special issues and commentaries for publication.
JCES is published by an early childhood researchers initiative in Turkey which is led by Dr. Mehmet Toran and collaborated with worldwide early childhood researchers who are on the editorial board of the journal. On behalf of the initiative, Dr.Mehmet Toran assumes all official responsibilities for the journal.
JCES is an open-access, non-profit, and independent academic journal, and adopts EECERA Ethical Code for Early Childhood Researchers (ECR).
Publication Frequency: JCES publishes triannually a year from 2021 (February, July, and November*).
* November issue is a thematic issue every year.
