Gifted Child Quarterly


GCQ is the scholarly journal of the National Association for Gifted Children. Since 1957, GCQ has published manuscripts offering new information and creative insights about giftedness and talent development in the context of the school, the home, and the wider society.

GCQ publishes original quantitative and qualitative research studies and scholarly reviews of literature. The journal also publishes manuscripts reviewing policy and policy implications, and on occasion publishes special issue devoted to current topics of interest to the field.
