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: submit your ideas and work 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
