Contribute to AJEC

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the early childhood field, ECA welcomes submissions from a variety of perspectives. All AJEC submissions should provide a contemporary and informative contribution to the early childhood field.

For interested authors, it is recommended to look closely at the author guidelines before submitting a manuscript.

ECA recognises the importance of ensuring the voices of leading academics and practices in the early childhood around the world are shared promptly and efficiently. Therefore, AJEC is published through an article first workflow—not only does your article publish in hard copy but publishes online first.

AJEC publishes peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of the education and care of young children, to impart new information and encourage the critical exchange of ideas among practitioners, academics and students in the early childhood field. Becoming an AJEC reviewer is a voluntary position and ECA both encourages and appreciates the work undertaken by our reviewers.

To submit an article to our journal, or to become a reviewer of the journal please visit our new online platform SAGE Track.
