New Child Development Sociocultural Policy
In keeping with SRCD’s stated goal of increasing global participation and awareness, Child Development announces a new sociocultural policy intended to increase the scope and breadth of sample information included in published articles. While CD previously required the reporting of participant ages, gender and race/ethnicity, further relevant information such as participants’ socioeconomic status, language, family characteristics, specific location information, etc. will now be required. The inclusion of this information is aimed at providing greater clarity regarding sample characteristics, specifically in the context of the research questions posed in the article. See the full policy text, located under the Announcements section.
