Information for Authors
Relational Child & Youth Care Practice welcomes the submission of manuscripts on all aspects of relating to children and young people. While particular attention will be given to material that explores the interpersonal dynamics of professional practice, consideration will also be given to all submissions that assume a relational perspective. This might include topics such as cultural values, ethics, social policy, program design, supervision, education, training etc. Each issue may include: refereed articles that comply with acceptable ‘academic’ standards; submissions contributed by regular and guest columnists; short pieces that describe particular relational experiences and reflections; poetry; artwork and photographs.
Material should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org in standard word processing format (such as MS Word or rich text format). Formal articles should not exceed 20 pages in length and should include an abstract of approximately 100 words. This material should conform to the guidelines set out in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association Sixth edition, 2010). References must be included with all article submissions. Author-date citations should be used within the text and a double-spaced reference section should accompany each article. In all submissions, authorship details, including brief biographies and digital photographs, should be included.
Although no article or submission will be rejected purely for stylistic reasons, the editors reserve the right to return any manuscript for additional work. Authors requiring editorial assistance in this regard should indicate their request in a covering letter.
