Aims and Scope

Infant and Child Development aims to publish the best contemporary research in developmental psychology through empirical, theoretical and methodological papers addressing psychological development from the prenatal period to adolescence. The journal welcomes brief empirical reports (up to 3000 words), and longer reports on a sequence of studies, reviews or theoretical papers (normally up to 8000 words). With a readership including researchers in developmental psychology, but also child practitioners in health and education, the journal publishes research addressing typical and atypical development across the range of human behaviour and experience including socio-emotional, cognitive, perceptual, motor, and language development. Infant and Child Development is particularly keen to publish research which elucidates processes and mechanisms of development, and which extends or challenges accepted ways of thinking.
