The Froebel Ireland Journal of Child-Centred Education
The Froebel Journal of Child-Centred Education welcomes submission from anyone interested in progressive practice. Submissions with a wide international representation are welcome and articles from practitioners, researchers, and scholars from developing nations are especially welcomed. Authors are requested to avoid the use of jargon and technical terms without accompanying explanation and to be sensitive to the international audience of the journal. Standard stylistic conventions and form should be followed.
Main articles should describe research, theory, and practice in the above-mentioned areas or describe initiatives in primary teacher education at undergraduate or graduate level. They should be up to 6000 words in length. Shorter articles, of up to 2500 words, presenting information of general interest are welcome. Other articles, commentary, book reviews, and correspondence are also welcome and will be published at the discretion of the General Editor. Prospective authors of the latter should contact the General Editor to enquire about suitability.
It is the policy of the Froebel Journal to consider for publication only articles that are not simultaneously being considered elsewhere. Please follow these guidelines in preparing your manuscript for submission.
Illustration, tables and figures should be numbered consecutively (e.g. Figure 1, Table 1, Table 2, etc.) and submitted on separate sheets. The approximate position of tables and figures should be indicated in the manuscript. Tables and figures should be kept to a minimum
Avoid the use of footnotes when at all possible.
Authors are encouraged to minimise the use of underlining, parentheses, italics, and quotation marks for emphasis in the text.
Manuscript submissions should be sent to the General Editor at the Froebel College. Please send three copies of the manuscript. An electronic copy of the manuscripts can be forwarded in Microsoft Word format via email. Each main article should be accompanied by a 500 word abstract.
Manuscripts are subject to blind peer review, authors should identify themselves only on the title page and cover letter. The cover letter should confirm that the manuscript is original work, not under consideration for publishing, or having been published elsewhere.
