The South African Journal of Childhood Education is a peer-reviewed journal providing a forum for the dissemination of research in childhood learning and development and the care and education of children from birth to 12 years. The journal is interdisciplinary in scope and seeks to stimulate the exchange of ideas in a variety of subjects, contexts and issues in childhood education and childcare. The editors welcome articles showing evidence of robust empirical research that is also theoretically strong.
We are now inviting interested academics to apply or to nominate suitable colleagues for inclusion as new board members and section editors.
All applications and nominations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submission deadline: 31 January 2020
Editorial board members’ key responsibilities include:
- Acting as advocates for the journal throughout the community
- Upon invitation, acting as peer reviewers for submitted papers within their area of expertise
- Providing editorial advice on an ad hoc basis
Editorial board candidates should be established academics with a clear publication record demonstrating their expertise in their research field. They may be research group leaders, professors and senior scholars. Naturally, board candidates should maintain the high ethical standards expected of academics overseeing aspects of peer review.
The position of an editorial board member is voluntary, and part-time.
Thank you for your continuing interest in our work.
