are you worried about a child? find out who to talk to.

Write for the Journal

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.

Open call: what can I submit to the Journal?

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.

  • Peer-reviewed academic papers
  • Short reflections or commentaries on research, policy or practice
  • Methodological papers from doctoral studies
  • Accounts of relevant conferences
  • Book reviews
  • Obituaries

Next issue: November 2020 - Deadline for submissions of interest to be confirmed soon.

If you have an idea for an article, we would love to hear from you. Examples could include accounts of innovative practice, reflections on care practice and care experience, or a thematic focus such as risk, trauma, parenting, love, language, and physical restraint. Please feel free to interpret the theme widely.

I have an idea - what next?

Send a paragraph outlining your ideas for the article, a working title and your contact details to SJRCC@strath.ac.uk.

Jointly authored articled are also welcome. Articles should be 2,000-3,000 words in length.

For further information on how to submit your writing to the Journal, as well as instructions on writing styles and referencing, please download our submission pack.
