Journal of Childhood, Education & Society (JCES) is an international double-blind peer-reviewed journal that accepts research and critical review articles and publishes 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 accepts manuscripts only in English. Authors could use either British(-ise) or American spelling for their manuscript; however, one style should be used consistently throughout the manuscript.
