Journal Ethos The Journal of Perspectives in Applied Academic Practice aims to provide a supportive publishing outlet to allow established and particularly new authors to contribute to the scholarly discourse of academic practice (both generally and in their discipline area) through the publication of papers that are theory-based and supported by evidence, as well as through the publication of Opinion Pieces and ‘On the Horizon’ papers on emerging work.
The Author Guidelines provide further guidance on the thematic areas covered by the journal, and the format for submissions to the journal. In relation to the general ethos of the Journal of Perspectives in Applied Academic Practice, the journal exists not only for the publication of papers within our thematic scope but also as a collegiate and developmental platform for new authors, those new to journal reviewing, and for scholars who are seeking to gain experience in journal editing and publishing.

Early learning and childcare (ELC) is a generic term used to cover the full range of early education and childcare available in Scotland today.
The term early learning and childcare is intended to emphasise that the care and education of very young children are not two separate things, and that babies and young children are learning all the time from all their experiences. Early learning and childcare settings are all those which offer education and childcare to children up to school age. The term 'early learning and childcare' was introduced in the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014. Frameworks and guidance Related links Support materials on the National Improvement Hub:
