About the special issue

This special issue focuses on selected socially relevant issues of interest to developmental scientists. The term "developmental science," rather than "child psychology," is used to emphasize both the scientific and multidisciplinary foundations of the study of development and the recognition that development is not confined to childhood but extends across the life span.
