About this Journal
Continuity in Education is an open access, peer reviewed journal for the education of children and young people with medical and mental health needs.
In line with a biopsychosocial model of health, education and psychological development, the journal reports on different contexts, which may include education in a hospital community or home setting, in urban or rural areas, within different educational systems or structures, across different countries, jurisdictions, and socio-cultural settings, and during different life phases of the individual. The journal aims to focus on the interactions between education and human development in the fields of well-being, resilience, future life choices and opportunities, social and emotional well-being, cognitive and metacognitive learning strategies, and mental health improvement.
The journal is open to all contributions that deepen the concept of learning and education as protective factors in the life of young people facing adversities. The concept of continuity in education is also extended to education delivered in other contexts where children and families are living with some kind of disruptive event in their life.

The coronavirus emergency
The coronavirus emergency is challenging mainstream schools to create digital learning environments that are engaging for students who are used to working face-to-face in a socially rich context. But the true pedagogical challenge is to help students to make a sense of what is happening around them, to reconstruct their social and growth-related fabric, and to keep their process of development going despite the isolation and the greater physical distance under which they currently live.
How are your schools coping with all this? What type of distance learning tools are your schools using? Can students be involved as active learners and not just passive recipients of curriculum-related content? Can the experience and sound practices of home and hospital education be extended to mainstream schools? What are the psychological effects of the isolation in children?
If you have any effective practice or research to share, Continuity in Education is open to receiving papers on these subjects, and the papers will be published given the highest priority.
The Editorial Team of Continuity In Education is also considering standard articles for publication in the 2021 issue of the journal.

Submissions are now open, and if you wish to contribute to the 2021 issue please submit your work by September 15, 2020 in order to be sure your paper will be processed in time.
