We would like to share exciting news and updates regarding the status and future of the JCE:
New Benefits. Character.org (formerly the Character Education Partnership; CEP) has now made the JCE a membership benefit for all members! This should greatly expand our readership and benefit the JCE (and the field in many ways). Please encourage your colleagues to become a member of Character.org today and enjoy a one-year subscription to the JCE.
New Issue. JCE recently released Volume 11, Issue 1 for 2015. This issue brings the JCE into its second decade of life and, as such, is going through adolescence with promise of reaching maturity.
New Staff. JCE now has a new Managing Editor, Jonathan M. Tirrell. Jonathan is a Ph.D. student from Rich Lerner’s Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development at Tufts University and has been doing great work in bringing the Journal to the next level of success. Special thanks to Richard M. Lerner and the IARYD for continued contributions and support.
New Call for Papers. We are on schedule with the upcoming 2015-2016 issues. In addition, we have released a call for papers for a special issue regarding character education and the Common Core (the US Federal education model). Click here to learn more about the Common Core special issue.
New Submissions. In addition to the 2016 special issue, we are always seeking manuscript submissions from researchers and practitioners. Please consider submitting a manuscript or encouraging your colleagues to do so. Click here for more information about submitting manuscripts to the JCE. We also welcome proposals for guest-edited themed issues.
