The International Society for Child Indicators invites you to participate in their call for manuscripts for a 2019 special issue of the Child Indicators Research journal on child neglect.

Acceptable submissions include empirical research, literature review, and conceptual submissions with direct implications for measurement/indicators covering any type and dimension of inadequate care and protection of children, regardless of who is responsible, with consequences in all spheres of child development/wellbeing. Using scientifically sound qualitative and/or quantitative methods, submissions that use multiple data sources, examine neglect in its larger political and economic context, and incorporate the perspectives of children and families from diverse cultural contexts and caregiving environments are particularly encouraged. Within ecological conceptualizations of neglect, submissions will be accepted from any country that explore protective factors and/or effective community or institutional interventions and policies for the prevention of neglect and associated consequences for children across different developmental domains.

All papers will be double-blind peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal and will be listed together on the special issue website.

Due Date*: September 15, 2018


Author guidelines and submission information can be found on the Child Indicators Research journal page. You will also find a call for papers attached.
