  • Gifted Child Today is a quarterly publication for parents, teachers, and other professionals who are interested in gifted education. Manuscripts may address all areas of gifted education that pertain to practices, policy, or applications of research.

    Gifted Child Today is a peer-reviewed publication. The editor refers manuscripts to qualified reviewers who have expertise in a specific area. Reviewers' comments are then provided to the author by the editor. To avoid delay in the publication process, the author should follow these instructions:

    1. Manuscripts should represent only original work that has not been published previously or is not being considered for publication elsewhere. If copyrighted material is used, copies of letters granting permission for publication should be included.
    2. Manuscripts should be between 2,000 and 10,000 words long.
    3. The manuscript and references should follow the APA style as outlined in the seventh edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.
    4. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/gct, where authors will be required to set up an online account in the SAGETRACK system powered by ScholarOne.
    5. Submissions should conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), 7th edition. Along with a list of 2–5 keywords and an abstract of 100–150 words (for feature articles only), a cover page must be included that consists of the author's name, title, school and program affiliation, home and work addresses, phone numbers and email address.
    6. Tables, figures, illustrations, and photographs should be used to present information which is also discussed in the manuscript. If accepted for publication, tables, figures, illustrations, and photographs will need to be in their native file format to maintain their high resolution.
    7. Include a full reference for each citation that is mentioned in the text on a separate page at the end of the manuscript.
    8. The author must submit a brief 50–100 word biography.
    9. Authors of accepted manuscripts must give SAGE exclusive right to publish content.
    10. Address correspondence to Dr. Susan K. Johnsen, Editor, Department of Educational Psychology, Baylor University, School of Education, One Bear Place #97301, Waco, TX 76798-7301, or to Susan_Johnsen@baylor.edu.

    As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.

    The collection of ORCID iDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID iD you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID iD will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.

    If you do not already have an ORCID iD please follow this link to create one or visit our ORCID homepage to learn more.

    For more information, please refer to the SAGE Manuscript Submission Guidelines.
