< strong>Writing for Young children
Each edition is issued fivefold a year and provides hands-on, research-based coverage of current issues. We work with or for small children from the time of childbirth to the ages of 8. Readership includes schoolteachers, childcare workers, stewards of children's programs, resources and recommendation consultants, early interveners, primary schools leaders, instructors, undergraduates, scientists, political decision-makers, and others.
Papers chosen for inclusion in Young Children are deemed to contribute to the job; writers are not paid any fee or royalty. The Young Children article is examined and checked by the Young Children editors. Children's items differ in contents, length and writing styles. One of the best ways to find out what kind of manuscript we are looking for is to study recently written work.
A lot of writers are writing about a particular class room, college or teachers they have been observing. Please confirm or consider co-authoring this post if your paper details the practices of another pedagogue. Young-children does not post semester theses, literary review without a clear reference to practices, contents or advertising materials that concentrate on the organisation's product or service as journalistic contents and advertise them, or articles that highlight the research methodologies or the results of a single work.
We do not approve any article that has already been printed or electronically posted elsewhere. It is assumed that the papers were not filed with other publication at the same time. Contributions for young children are composed in an informative, dialogue-oriented manner. Every edition contains a group of papers covering different facets of a subject.
Even though clusters themes are determined many month in advance to react to current themes and tendencies (see below), publishers may occasionally alter the release date of a clusters. In the following chart you will find the themes for future editions of Young Children and the deadlines for submission of items to be taken into account for each group.
We no longer ask writers to suggest clusters for their work. Writers should send in full papers (preferably with illustrations and photos). If you are sending an item to Young Children, please follow the following formating and entry instructions. Ensure that the authors' name and certain jobs/schools/program titles do not appear on any page of the paper; all scripts are blindly checked.
Do not use the children's genuine name. Add sub-categories to the entire item. Specify the name of the item. Specify the kind of item (cluster theme, general, viewpoint). Specify name, affiliations, titles, addresses, telephone, facsimile and e-mail for each writer. Nominate an artist as main point of communication. Provide the script ID for each script that has been co-authored by the main writer or co-author and that has been approved for publishing in Young Children within the last two years.
Give a brief abstract of how the application provides useful and pertinent information for educators and other professionals. Writers should give precise and comprehensive information for reference and resource use. The Young Children expect the writers to concentrate on reference material that has been released in the last 10 years (unless they are promising sources) to mirror the latest research results and information.
The author should also use the number of materials appropriate to the length of his work. The Young Children follows Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, eleventh issue, for orthography and The Chicago Manual of style, sixteenth issue, for styles and referencing. We courage writers to add interesting, informational images (e.g. high-resolution photos, work examples for children, diagrams and graphics) that improve the contents of the paper and improve comprehension.
Before submitting, the researcher must have a filled out form (signed by an adult in the photograph and by the parent or tutor of a kid who is in the photograph) for each identifiable individual who is featured in the author's photographs. Authors who did not take the photographs but submitted them with the articles must certify that they have the right to make the photographs public and that the photographers have the necessary approvals for the models.
An example and the images themselves should be included as part of the submitted paper as seperate uploads to MN. Don't insert them into the item itself. Young-children do not charge for their own photographs if they are part of the contents of the paper.
Please read our photo policy to send in a photo. It is the responsibility of the author to obtain and maintain parental or guardian consent in writing to take photographs of children and grown-ups. In the case of cited materials containing more than 100 words, illustrations and spreadsheets (or their contents), the author must obtain and file with Young Children before publishing a work.
All entries will be sent to Young Children via electronic means via ManuelScript Centrale. Once an accounting has been created, the author will find a guide to submitting manuscripts. Make sure to send the covering note, item and photos as individual attachments. Except for the Clusters thematic papers, the papers are generally released 6 to 24 month after adoption. Writers can review the state of their posts in your Creator Portal by signing into your user profile and click on the "Submitted Manuscripts" button on the right side of the essail.
Important: Single persons can only enter one item within six months. Young-Children's favorite practise is to release a particular writer only once every 12 months. Only one paper can be submitted at a while. Irrespective of whether they are the only one or one of several writers. Writers who have submitted several papers must choose which one to put forward first.
Once the articles have been checked, the writers are informed of their state. Upon receiving this notice, the writer may add another item. This means that only one item per writer can be considered and checked at a while. For young children, the peer reviews usually take 6-8 month from the date of receiving the work.
Compression is used for clusters of items. Please approve the item. Encourage the writer to make revision and submit them for further verification (most items need some revision) and possible adoption. Tell the writer that the item will not be approved. He informs the writer of the choice by e-mail.
If necessary, this letter contains the reviews' comments and proposals for improving the work. You cannot specify the precise release date of the items you accept in advanced (except for a specific cluster). The editors take into account the contents, format, target group and length of the article as well as the deadline for submitting the article.
Writers will be informed when their contributions are due for release. You are asked to update and fill in biographies, copyrights, photos and recognition form. Publishers send the revised text back to the writer by e-mail for definitive release before the script goes into use. Occasionally, short-term changes to the contents of an edition may result in the postponement of the publishing of an item.
Writers will get two copy of the edition in which their articles appear.
