A status report for NBF shows that it has been a really busy year in 2013, with a total of 30 articles published in the journal. Ten of them were in English language, which reach a larger audience in Europe and worldwide. This, we are proud of!

In 2013, the journal has also engaged a new executive editor and editor. NBF are also linked to more than ten section editors in different Nordic countries, and a distributed net of reviewer. In the beginning of 2014, we have many articles “in work”, from a variety of subjects connected to Early Childhood Educational Research.  The interest in publishing in NBF has increased! We are very happy about this, but it also requires more reviewers. Therefore, we encourage our readers / writers to register as a peer review of the journal.

In addition to an ordinary Volume for 2014, where we continuously publishing peer-reviewed articles, we will in autumn 2014 publish a special issue of NBF with professor Nina Rossholt, University College of Oslo and Akershus, as a guest editor. The theme of this special issue is Methodology in Early Childhood Educational Research. We invite authors to submit articles on a variety of methodological questions, articles that present and discuss different use of research methods in various subjects / disciplines related to early childhood education and care. On the basis of the submitted articles, the guest editor will select ten articles to the special issue. The deadline for submitting articles is 1srt of June 2014. Mark the article with the thematic issue in methodology.
