What We Publish

Journal Sections*

Home Education – We are always looking for original research conducted in the context of Christian home education.  We typically do not get as many manuscripts on this topic as we would like to publish.
PK12 Education – We regularly publish original research conducted in the context of Christian PK12 education.  This is one of our most consistently published sections.
Higher Education – We regularly publish original research conducted in the context of Christian higher education. This is one of our most consistently published sections.
Theory Development - Original inquiry into previously unstudied topics as well as grounded theory, philosophical, and theological studies
Border Crossings - Articles from different faith perspectives
Emerging Scholars - Articles from early career scholars, graduate students, scholars with recently minted doctorates, or articles by undergraduates and their faculty research advisors
Clearing House – This section includes Literature Reviews, Scholarly Essays, and Book Reviews

*Not every journal issue includes all of these sections

Article Types

Research Articles – These are the backbone of the journal. Topics and research approaches vary widely.  You may contact the JRCE office to inquire about the fit of your proposed article with JRCE.
Literature Reviews – Topic must be of contemporary concern and not have had a review published on the topic within the past five year
Scholarly Essays – While not a formal as a research article, the essay requires a specific thesis for its focus and careful attention to its logic and organization.  All arguments in the essay should be supported by research literature and/or scripture.
Book Reviews – These are an excellent entry into academic publication or a way of ensuring you stay current with the literature in your field.  If you have a book you would suggest for review in the JRCE contact the Associate Editor for Books Reviews to inquire about its fit with the journal.
