Child Development (CD)

SRCD’s flagship journal, Child Development publishes peer-reviewed empirical and theoretical articles reporting research on child development, on a bimonthly basis.

Child Development Perspectives (CDP)

Established in 2006, CDP publishes brief articles on developmental science that are written in accessible language for a wide audience, on a quarterly basis. CDP does not publish articles reporting new empirical findings.


Published quarterly, each Monographs issue consists of a single large-scale study or a group of papers on a common theme, sometimes accompanied by an outside commentary piece solicited by the editor.

Social Policy Report

SRCD brings the science of child development to public policy through the production of the Social Policy Report
