"This journal is unique in the field of early childhood literacy. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, it steps beyond the pragmatic interests of present educational policy to consider the wider issues of tomorrow's world." Eve Gregory
" …pushing the boundaries and blends of 'literacy' and 'early childhood' in startling, generative directions." Allan Luke
"Literacy is changing, as is our understanding of young children's learning capacity and what it is they have to learn. At such a time of change it is particularly important to have a forum that is focused on young children's encounters with literacy in all its manifestations." Henrietta Dombey
Journal of Early Childhood Literacy is a fully peer-reviewed international journal. Since its foundation in 2001 JECL has rapidly become a distinctive, leading voice in research in early childhood literacy, with a multinational range of contributors and readership. The main emphasis in the journal is on papers researching issues related to the nature, function and use of literacy in early childhood. This includes the history, development, use, learning and teaching of literacy, as well as policy and strategy. Research papers may address theoretical, methodological, strategic or applied aspects of early childhood literacy and could be reviews of research issues. JECL is both a forum for debate about the topic of early childhood literacy and a resource for those working in the field. Literacy is broadly defined; JECL focuses on the 0-8 age range.
Our prime interest in empirical work is those studies that are situated in authentic or naturalistic settings; this differentiates the journal from others in the area. JECL, therefore, tends to favour qualitative work but is also open to research employing quantitative methods. The journal is multi-disciplinary. We welcome submissions from diverse disciplinary backgrounds including: education, psychology, literacy studies, sociology, anthropology, historical and cultural studies, applied linguistics and semiotics.
