Offers New Insights into Human Development throughout the Life Span

Distinguished by its international recognition since 1958, Human Development publishes theoretical and metatheoretical contributions to the study of psychological development, including conceptually, historically, and methodologically oriented integrative reviews of lines of developmental research. Contributions serve to raise theoretical issues, flesh out interesting and potentially powerful ideas, and conceptually differentiate key constructs within developmental science. Contributions come primarily from developmental psychology but are welcome from other relevant disciplines. Descriptions of empirical evidence to support theoretical arguments or help integrate issues of theory, methods, and evidence (especially across disciplines) are also welcome but only insofar as they are employed for strictly illustrative purposes in the service of a conceptual contribution to the field.
