*Child Development Call for Special Section Submissions*
*Bringing Developmental Science into the World *

*Child Development* announces a call for papers for the special
section *Bringing
Developmental Science into the World*, with guest editors Roberta Michnick
Golinkoff (University of Delaware), Kathy Hirsh-Pasek (Temple University),
Rachel Grob (University of Wisconsin) and Mark Schlesinger (Yale
University). This special section invites manuscripts that have studied
innovative programs, daily activities, or special events for children and
families using the lens of developmental science. Researchers have often
contributed to the creation and study of such activities, and our science
can profit from learning more about how child development is supported,
facilitated or undermined in the “real” world. We invite manuscripts that
widen the theoretical underpinnings and methodology Child Development
generally considers, such as how to heighten parents’ awareness of the
power of informal learning or the role of physical activity in children’s
learning.  From a methodological standpoint, the section will seek to
include community-based participatory research, community-engaged research,
and participatory action research -- following precedents for publication
of such studies in other fields such as behavioral economics, public
sociology and clinical sciences.

Authors who plan to submit a manuscript for the special section are asked
to submit a letter of intent (LOI) by *June 1, 2015*, that includes: 1)
tentative title; 2) contact information and corresponding author; 3) names
and affiliations of anticipated authors; 4) brief description (500 words or
less); and 5) a brief explanation (2 sentences) of the perceived fit
between the submission and the themes described.  Following a review of
received letters (roughly 1 month), potential contributors will be
contacted to submit full manuscripts by the final deadline of September 15,
2015.  *Please visit *
to review the full call before submitting a letter to ensure your
submission complies with the section’s requirements and intention.*

It is the dilemma of psychology to deal as a natural science with an object
that creates history. Ernst Boesch.
