For Authors and Reviewers
Wiley Developmental Science Publishing Network
Child Development participates in the Wiley Developmental Science Publishing Network. This exciting collaboration between a number of high quality journals simplifies and speeds up the publication process, helping authors find a home for their research. At the Editors’ judgement, suitable papers not accepted by one journal may be recommended for referral to another journal(s) in the network. Authors decide whether to accept the referral, with the option to transfer their paper with or without revisions. Once the referral is accepted, submission happens automatically, along with any previous reviewer reports, thereby relieving pressure on the peer review process. While a transfer does not guarantee acceptance, it is more likely to lead to a successful outcome for authors by helping them to find a route to publication quickly and easily.
Please review the Child Development Author Guidelines for journal submission details.
Current Calls for Child Development

Call for Reviewers to Serve as Statistical Consulting Editors:
Statistical Consulting Editors (SCEs) act as volunteer ‘super reviewers’ across the Child Development Editorial Board with a focus on statistical data. Similar to a regular reviewer, Statistical Consulting Editors receive invitations to review papers based on editor need, however they are also identified as a ‘go-to’ reviewer of statistical materials amongst editors and agree to handle ~10 papers annually.
Contact incoming Editor-in-Chief Glenn Roisman (email@example.com) and the SRCD Publications Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) today to learn more and volunteer your expertise as a Child Development Statistical Consulting Editor.
Child Development Editorial Board
Under incoming Editor-in-Chief Glenn I. Roisman, the current Editorial Board will be handling submissions beginning July 1, 2019. The previous Editorial Board under Editor-in-Chief Cynthia García Coll handled submissions from July 1, 2013 - June 30, 2019.
