Recent Coverage of Early Childhood Education Approaches in Open Access Early Childhood Journals
Keskin, Burhanettin
Early Child Development and Care, v186 n11 p1722-1736 2016
A content analysis of the coverage of the major approaches to early childhood education in the early childhood research journals, published between 2010 and 2014, that are early childhood research oriented and have free online access were investigated. Among 21 journals in early childhood education, two journals were selected for the content analysis of the major approaches to early childhood education: "Early Childhood Research and Practice" and "International Research in Early Childhood Education." These early childhood journals are the only journals that are fully online and available for free. The results showed that Head Start was the most frequently used approach that appeared in these journals followed by Reggio Emilia. The theory of Internet Information Gatekeepers guided this current research's theoretical framework. A brief overview of each approach was provided along with the significance of the study. Concerns about the ways approaches were mentioned in the studies were discussed.
