Although published here in Scotland, the Journal has an international outlook. And this makes sense because concerns about the welfare of children in care is a global one, and international comparison provides us all with an opportunity to develop research, policy and practice.
We're always looking for contributors from across the globe to share their wide and varied experience - from practitioners, managers, researchers, and policy folk, to young people with experience of the care system.
We also plan specific themed issues and have a call for papers right now:
The Scottish Journal of Residential Child Care (SJRCC) is inviting submissions for a special themed issue on disability to be published in December 2018.
We are seeking abstracts now with proposals for papers on any aspect of disability and residential child care - or indeed any aspect of care, or leaving care. We'd like to hear from academics, from people involved in caregiving, and from young people reflecting on their own experience of care and disability.
Papers from countries other than Scotland are particularly welcome.
If you would like to be considered, please email our Guest Editors by 30 November 2017: email@example.com. You will need to provide:
End of December
Journal Committee respond to abstracts
Peer review and feedback
Revised papers submitted
We welcome and publish a real variety of articles and papers on all topics related to residential child care.
