We would like to share exciting news and updates regarding the journal:
John Templeton Foundation Grant. Thanks to the John Templeton Foundation we have been able to continue Dr. Jonathan M. Tirrell as Managing Editor. Jonathan is a recent graduate of Tufts University who has been helping bring the Journal of Character Education (JCE) to the next level of success. We are also grateful to Rich Lerner at the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development for connecting us to Jonathan and supporting his initial involvement with the JCE.
The Templeton Grant also funds free subscriptions to the JCE for graduate students. Click here for the form.
New Issue. JCE recently released Volume 12, Issue 1. This issue focuses on character education in relationship to the Common Core (U.S. federal education model). Several practitioner “Voices” contribute to information on the successful application of character education in the classroom. Volume 12, Issue 2 is now in the process of being published.
Forthcoming Issues. Three special issues are currently in the works. Two focus on a recent National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine workshop on character development and third on the Moralogy model from Japan.
New Call for Papers. We have released a call for papers for a special issue regarding the development of purpose, effective methods to cultivate and assess purpose in youth, and applying this information to communities beset by structural and institutional inequities. Click here to learn more about this special issue.
Submissions. We are always seeking manuscript submissions from researchers and practitioners. 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.
