The Journal of Research on Adolescence and Wiley are delighted to announce that the journal will be available online-only beginning in January 2016. In addition to significantly reducing the environmental impact of printing and mailing, this important transition reflects a larger trend in 21st-century scholarship, with scholarly journals everywhere moving rapidly toward electronic-only distribution. This will result in much broader readership and improved services for Society for Research on Adolescence members, including the creation of new online initiatives to strengthen the usability, submission rate, readership, and global interactivity of the journal. Printed copies of the journal will still be available for separate purchase. Individuals interested in ordering printed copies of the journal can do so here.
