In September 1996, responding to a growing interest and concern across education and society generally the project team launched the International Journal of Children’s Spirituality (IJCS).
Aiming to provide an international and multi-cultural forum for those involved in research and the development of children’s and young people’s spirituality the journal considers what is meant by ‘spirituality’ and its relevance for schooling and society.
The IJCS has recently been accepted into the Arts and Humanities Citation Index®. This demonstrates the growing interest in the subject of children’s spirituality and the quality of the Journal.
