The second article of Nordic Journal of Systematic Reviews in Education is now published. The article, Positive factors Facilitating Collaboration between Early Childhood Education and Care Institutions and Multilingual Parents – A Protocol for a Systematic Review and Thematic, is a protocol.

The protocol presents the planned and upcoming work for a systematic review of the topic, positive factors facilitating cooperation between early childhood education and care (ECEC) institutions, and multilingual parents.

"The number of children with a foreign background, both in Scandinavia and internationally, has increased during recent decades. These children are often exposed to more than one language on a daily basis. Earlier research has established that collaboration between ECEC institutions and parents is a vital factor in children’s development, learning, and school success. This is especially the case for multilingual children with a foreign background. This protocol discusses research-based knowledge in relation to this collaboration, and identifies a knowledge gap regarding up-to-date research on the positive factors enabling collaboration between ECEC institutions and multilingual parents," the abstract says.
