Journal of Early Childhood Literacy

Publisher: SAGE Publications

The Journal of Early Childhood Literacy is a peer-reviewed journal that
serves as a research publication forum for studies within the field of early
childhood literacy, publishing relevant contributions in English from
researchers in all countries and in all disciplines.

Contributions are welcome from researchers working in the following areas:

* anthropology * education * language and linguistics * psychology * sociology
* historical and cultural studies.

The main emphasis in the journal is on papers researching issues related to
the nature, function and use of literacy in early childhood. This includes
the history, development, use, learning and teaching of literacy, as well as
policy and strategy. Research papers may address theoretical,
methodological, strategic or applied aspects of early childhood literacy and
could be reviews of research issues.

Contributions from all research traditions are welcome, although emphasis
will be placed on qualitative studies. 'Childhood literacy' implies an
interest in papers which explore childhood literacy beyond education, a
distinctive orientation. Literacy is broadly defined and papers will
concentrate on the 0-8 age range.

Papers published in the journal will:

* Report on research findings in early childhood literacy

* Contribute to the understanding of literacy in a variety of socio-cultural

* Explore conceptual and methodological issues in the study of early
childhood literacy

* Include the work of researchers from a wide range of academic disciplines.

The Journal of Early Childhood Literacy is both a forum for debate about the
topic of early childhood literacy and a resource for those working in the
field. The journal welcomes notices of major conferences, books for review,
and announcements of research projects.
