Journal of Adolescence

The Journal of Adolescence (JoA) is an international, broad based, cross-disciplinary journal that addresses issues of professional and academic importance concerning development between puberty and the attainment of adult status within society. The journal publishes both empirical and clinical studies as well as integrative reviews and theoretical advances.

Ingrid Schoon is the EARA’s Editorial Assistant at JoA. An agreement between EARA and the JoA includes the possibility to set up a special issue for the journal every two years, based on the EARA biennial meeting.

The guest editors of the Journal of Adolescence (Ingrid Schoon, Frosso Motti-Stefanidi, and Wim Beyers) invite contributors to the 16th Conference of the European Association for Research on Adolescence (EARA) in Ghent, Belgium, to submit an extended abstract for a special issue “Resilience in Adolescence: Definitions, theory, and challenges”. Please see the Call for abstracts for detailed info. The deadline is March 15th, 2019.
