Aims and Scope
The Scottish Journal of Residential Child Care will provide a forum for residential child care staff and other professionals to reflect on policy; practice, training and research in the field of residential child care. The journal will maintain a practice focus and all papers are encouraged to examine and discuss implications for practitioners and the dissemination of best practice. By emphasising the links between policy; practice and research, the journal intends to promote and enhance the development of positive practice in residential child care.
The journal, in particular, encourages papers from residential child care practitioners and also contributions from young people reflecting their experience of residential child care. It will be published twice a year and welcomes contributions in the form of research and practice papers, case studies, brief communications and correspondence from readers.
The views expressed in the papers in this volume are those of the authors and are not necessarily those of the Scottish Institute for Residential Child Care or the Advisory Board.
