Journal of Emergent Science

Editors: Jane Johnston and Sue Dale Tunnicliffe. http://www.ase.org.uk/journals/journal-of-emergent-science/

The Journal of Emergent Science is a professional research e-journal published by the Emergent Science Network in collaboration with ASE. The journal focuses on science (including health, technology and engineering) for young children from birth to 8 years of age. The key features of the journal are that it:

  • is child-centred;
  • focuses on scientific development of children from birth to 8 years of age, considering the transitions from one stage to the next;
  • contains easily accessible yet rigorous support for the development of professional skills;
  • focuses on effective early years science practice and leadership;
  • considers the implications of research into emergent science practice and provision;
  • contains exemplars of good learning and development firmly based in good practice;
  • supports analysis and evaluation of professional practice.

The Editorial Board of the journal is composed of Association for Science Education members, including teachers and academics with national and international experience.

It is published on the ASE web site twice a year. Subscribers will receive an e-mail alert from ASE Headquarters informing them of the availability of the issue. The journal can be read online or downloaded. Back issues of the journal are also available free of charge to subscribers.

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
