Aims and scope
Children Australia aims to:
- Provide a quality evidence base to support better outcomes for children, young people and families;
- Highlight diverse evidence types, including practice evidence, reflections and research;
- Provide the child, young people and family services sector with their own formal knowledge communication vehicle:
- Promoting evidence use and creation by the sector; and
- Building sector capacity in evidence creation and communication; and
- Foster connections between the sector and academic researchers – breaking down silos in knowledge.
Children Australia publishes original articles, including research articles, reviews, policy and practitioner reports, methods articles and commentaries. The journal welcomes contributions from children, young people, carers, guardians, parents, practitioners, clinicians, academics, researchers, students and policymakers.
Children Australia invites contributions about the welfare, wellbeing and development of children, young people and their families. The journal is designed to reflect a broad cross-discipline approach that ensures the many fields of practice and research relevant across service sectors are represented.
The journal is published online continuously in two issues per volume/calendar year.
