Writing for the Research in Practice Series...
Early Childhood Australia accepts unsolicited manuscripts for consideration for its regular publications. The Publications Committee invites high-quality contributions on all aspects of the education and care of young children from birth to eight.
Given the multidisciplinary nature of the early childhood field, Early Childhood Australia welcomes submissions from a variety of perspectives, the main criteria being that they provide a contemporary and informative contribution to the early childhood field.
Interested authors should look closely at the guidelines for contributors, and seek further information on the preparation of manuscripts from the Publishing and Marketing Section.
The review process...
All manuscripts submitted to Early Childhood Australia are required to undergo a blind review, conducted by experienced early childhood professionals before being accepted for publication.
