 About the Journal

Aim of the IJDS is to present the state of the art of research in the realm of developmental science conducted in multiple disciplines worldwide. The IJDS provides a platform for diverse types of empirical studies and theoretical papers dealing with bio-psychosocial mechanisms of change, human development, and psychopathology during infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Manuscripts on animal research with results that are relevant to the understanding of human development are also considered. Manuscripts on social, health, and education policy are welcome if they are based on theoretical and empirical principles concerning developmental science. Cross-cultural as well as comparative developmental studies will also be represented.

The IJDS invites English language manuscripts. All manuscripts pass through a standard, multilevel peer-review process. Authors are invited to submit original empirical or theoretical contributions (e.g. analysis of or commentary on established theories in the field of developmental science, novel theoretical developments, or attempts to elaborate and integrate existing work) as well as methodological and review papers (e.g. systematic reviews, metaanalysis or extensive review papers as well as papers dealing with any methodological issues of particular relevance to developmental science). Manuscripts devoted to interdisciplinary topics of phylogenetic or ontogenetic human development are of particular interest (e.g. psychology, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, neuroscience, genetics, and biology).

 Submit your article online

All manuscripts, including tables, figures, etc., should be submitted electronically to our Manuscript Submission System.

For detailed instructions to authors (submission guidelines etc.) visit: www.iospress.nl/journal/international-journal-of-developmental-science

Suitable manuscripts are usually published within 3 to 4 months from submission. Accepted manuscripts will be published ahead of print with Onlinefirst, offering authors the advantage of making their research accessible to the public in a more timely manner. Onlinefirst manuscripts are citable by the publication date of the manuscript’s first online posting and the Digital Object Identifier (DOI), providing a persistent, permanent way to identify manuscripts published in the online environment.

Full-length articles are welcome, but authors are also encouraged to submit brief empirical research reports. Full-length manuscripts should not exceed 40,000 characters (note: the length of a manuscript in characters means letters AND empty spaces between letters/words) (approximately 20 double-spaced pages in 12-point Times New Roman font), including references, tables, and figures (note: count figures and tables, each printed on a separate page, as one page each). Manuscripts that exceed this limit will not be considered. Brief empirical research reports should not exceed 6 double spaced pages and 12,000 characters.

We look forward to your contributions and hope you will consider the IJDS as an outlet for your research! Special Section Editors Herbert Scheithauer (Editor-in-Chief of IJDS) & Simona Trip (Special Section Editor)
