Call for Papers

High Ability Studies is the official scholarly journal of the European Council for High Ability (ECHA). We encourage all conference participants to submit a paper based on their conference presentation for peer review and possible publication in the journal.

High Ability Studies publishes papers in English. The journal is concerned with aspects of development, personality, cognition, social behaviour and cross-cultural issues in relation to high ability. Theoretical modelling and measurement techniques, as well as instructional strategies and curriculum issues, are of interest. Consequently, the journal presents material which is relevant to researchers in the field, to managers who have highly able individuals employed, to policy makers who need to find frameworks by which to make the best use of high ability in society, to mentors, coaches, teachers, counsellors and parents of highly able children. Furthermore, the contents are not restricted to the study of manifest high level achievement, but include the identification and nurturance of unexercised potential.

The journal appears twice yearly, in June and December.
It is published by Taylor & Frances, Carfax Publishing, 4 Park Square, Milton Park, ABINGDON, OX14 4RN, U.K. ISSN 1359-8139

The International Journal for Talent Development and Creativity (IJTDC)

The International Journal for Talent Development and Creativity (IJTDC) is a refereed journal published twice a year by both the International Centre for Innovation in Education (ICIE) & Lost Prizes International (LPI). This journal  has grown out of an ongoing, vibrant partnership between the International Centre for Innovation in Education (ICIE) and Lost Prizes International (LPI).

So together, ICIE and LPI will continue to work in unison to forge partnerships with other individuals and groups through professional conferences that connect educators and create a spirit of global citizenship. The IJTDC – offered both online and in hard-copy format – is one piece of our service-delivery puzzle. Since there are some messages, themes, and information we wanted to highlight from the outset, this first issue, and the second, are by-invitation-only. Many well-known researchers agreed to submit articles, and we thank them sincerely for their contributions. By the time the next volume rolls around, we will be opening things up and calling for papers in the traditional manner. Should we feel the need to focus on a particular topic from time to time, we’ll go the special issue route.

Aside from the articles, IJTDC will contain the following regular features:

  • Book Reviews. Important books in our discipline will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
  • Standing on the Shoulders of Giants. This segment honours the memory of cherished colleagues who have passed on. All individuals recognized in this manner in IJTDC will have made enormous contributions to ICIE and/or LPI.
  • Profiles in Creativity. The intent here is to focus on the lives and work of pioneers in our area who are widely acknowledged for their creativity, and to consider what unique characteristics set them apart.
  • Exemplary Programs. Here is the place where real-world practitioners get to share their work in an international forum. In an effort to stimulate cross-cultural communication and partnering, however, the long-term goal is to feature various projects from many countries.
