Journal of Adolescent Research

Journal of Adolescent Research

Edited by Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, Clark University, MA

For over 20 years, the Journal of Adolescent Research (JAR) has been the must-read publication for all academics, practitioners, policy-makers, and journalists interested in a global perspective (not just North America) on adolescence (ages 10-18) and emerging adulthood (ages 18-25).

Articles are emphasized that combine both quantitative and qualitative methods, use a systematic qualitative or ethnographic approach, break new theoretical ground, or use a new methodological approach.

The Journal of Adolescent Research also includes book reviews, and a new column called "Editorial Essays," in which a prominent scholar will discuss an important issue in a looser format than the rest of the journal (opinion pieces, commentary, and wit & wisdom).

Every informative issue of JAR includes original, theoretical and research articles on topics such as sexual behavior, perceptions of adulthood, drug and alcohol abuse, environmental contexts, educational issues, ethnic identity, and resilience.

New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development

New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development

Editor-in-Chief, Lene Arnett Jensen, Clark University, MA

The mission of New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development is to provide scientific and scholarly presentations on cutting edge issues and concepts in the field of child and adolescent development. Each volume focuses on a specific new direction or research topic, and is edited by an expert or experts on that topic.

Any topic in the domain of child and adolescent development can be the focus of a volume. Topics can include social, cognitive, educational, emotional, biological, and socio-cultural issues that bear on children and youth, as well as issues in research methodology and other domains. Topics that bridge across areas are encouraged, as well as those that are international in focus or deal with under-represented groups. Volumes deal with infancy, childhood, adolescence, emerging adulthood, or bridge across these age periods; or occasionally stretch into adulthood.

From Past to Future

Edited by Jaan Valsiner, Clark University, MA

From Past to Future is charting a new role for the study of psychology's history for contemporary and potential future research in the discipline. Each issue of the journal is dedicated to a specific idea (or person) from psychology's past, which is analyzed as to how it can lead to further development of the discipline. Contributions of Karl Bühler, Tamara Dembo, Karl Duncker, Alexander Chamberlain and Zing-Yang Kuo have been featured in From Past to Future.

Advances in Child Development within Culturally Structured Environments

Edited by Jaan Valsiner, Clark University, MA

Contributors aim to integrate social and cognitive development research on the developing child within his/her environment. In the present context, "social" and "cognitive" development are not two separate or haphazardly intermingled domains, but are united into one: all cognitive development is social in its nature (as it is guided, although not determined, by the cultural environment), and all social development involves psychological processes that are cognitive in their nature.
