How to publish in this journal


Global Studies of Childhood publishes peer-reviewed research about issues that pertain to contemporary childhoods in a globalised era. The impact of global imperatives on the lives of children has been significant. The experiences of childhood that take place within the situated spaces of geographic locales and culturally specific frames of reference are subject to global forces that complicate, disrupt and reconfigure the meanings associated with childhood/s on the local and global stage. Our conceptualisation of childhood refers to a socially constructed category whose parameters are not necessarily fixed by factors such as biological development or chronological age. GSC is therefore interested in issues that pertain to childhood, here broadly conceived, and the challenges these pose to children’s lives and futures in an increasingly complex world. Issues around what constitutes childhood are therefore fundamental to discussions, as are ways in which we need to ensure that all children have basic human rights and are protected from exploitation. We are therefore interested and concerned about the lives of children, young people and young adults in a globalised context. In canvassing and promoting quality research we hope to be better able to understand childhoods and extend our notions about the ways in which Global Studies of Childhood can make a contribution to educational, cultural and social theory in strategic and significant ways. GSC will enable the significant issues to be showcased and interrogated in a dedicated space. This will include interdisciplinary research, using various research design and methodologies. The Editors and Editorial Advisory Board encourage the submission of a relevant high quality manuscripts that will include: reports of research and conceptual pieces; commentaries on published research articles, literature reviews; book reviews; colloquia and from time to time we will commission special editions and commentaries.

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
