Writing Research Articles for Publication in Early Childhood Education
Saracho, Olivia N.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v41 n1 p45-54 Jan 2013
Published research results in early childhood education contribute to the field's knowledge, theory, and practice. They also guide future early childhood education research studies. The publication of research articles is an essential requirement for academics. For some researchers, however, writing may be a difficult activity, particularly the process of getting the study published. This article discusses basic issues in scholarly writing and offers guidelines on ways to organize and write scientific research manuscripts that are appropriate for early childhood education and other disciplines. It explains the importance of publishing, defines the meaning of a scientific research publication, and explains the process in manuscript preparation to guide emerging researchers to write research manuscripts that are comprehensible and will have a high probability of being accepted for publication. Finally, it describes the publication process.
