Global recognition for NZTC’s online journal He Kupu

Early childhood educators’ research and views are set to be given increased global exposure due to an invitational licensing partnership offered to New Zealand Tertiary College’s (NZTC) online journal He Kupu by EBSCO – a USA-based global research journal database giant.

An online journal published twice a year by NZTC, He Kupu supports early childhood teachers, students, and teacher educators through the publication of practical outcomes focused research, and discussion on topics of relevance to early childhood education.

Recent editions have focused on children’s social and emotional development, and leadership in early childhood education, bringing together selected writers’ voices that focus on the latest in research with an emphasis on practical application.

“The invitation from EBSCO to join their database will put He Kupu into libraries all over the world. This is testament to the journal’s quality, commitment to its special characteristics and contribution to the international ECE community,” said NZTC Chief Executive Selena Fox.

“It has been exciting to watch He Kupu grow from a seed of an idea in 2006 into an opportunity for academic team members and students to have their first publication experience. Its current standing of peer reviewed rigour, supported by our International Review Board, serves a critical, collaborative and informed community of over 8,000 subscribers today,” she said.

The partnership comes hot on the heels of He Kupu’s new website, which was launched in December last year. Featuring a sleek design, the website was crafted with simplicity and user-friendliness in mind.

With improved article accessibility, easy-to-navigate layout, and added functions to enhance users’ experience, the website design works across a range of devices including mobile, tablet and desktop.

“Conceptualised, developed, designed, administered and managed completely in-house, He Kupu’s success is a credit to the entire NZTC team. We look forward to spreading its wings with EBSCO in the days ahead,” said Fox.
