Aims and Scope


Journal of Family Theory & Review (JFTR) seeks to encourage integration and growth in the multidisciplinary and international domains of inquiry that define contemporary family studies. The journal publishes original contributions in all areas of family theory, including new advances in theory development, reviews of existing theory, and analyses of the interface of theory and method, as well as integrative and theory based reviews of content areas, and book reviews.

JFTR draws from a broad range of the social sciences although scholarship based within the fields of family studies, sociology, and allied disciplines, developmental and social psychology, communications, health and allied fields is favored. Families are viewed broadly and inclusively to include individuals of varying ages and genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities, and nationalities.  The journal does not publish empirical papers with the exception of metatheoretical analyses.

An institutional subscription to Journal of Family Theory & Review and Family Relations is included with a subscription to Journal of Marriage and Family.
