Development Call for Special Section Submissions
*Positive Youth Development in Diverse and Global Contexts*

*Child Development* invites manuscripts for a Special Section focused on
Positive Youth Development in Diverse and Global Contexts, to be edited by
Emilie Smith (University of Georgia), Anne C. Petersen (University of
Michigan), and Patrick Lehman, (Royal Holloway, University of London).
Increasingly, research seeks to understand positive youth development
(PYD), its trajectory and promotive and inhibiting factors within the
socio-cultural contexts in which youth reside.  Such an approach moves
beyond a focus on risks and deficits, instead seeking to understand how
successful youth, particularly those who are from ethnic-minority and/or
less-advantaged groups, come to frame themselves in terms of identity,
civic engagement, collective efficacy, and a pattern of positive
inter-relationships with their peers, families, schools, and communities.
This special section seeks manuscripts from the national and international
communities *bridging research and practice*, particularly as it relates to
trajectories of normative and positive development. We welcome articles
that offer and test conceptual models using a variety of rigorous,
innovative, and mixed-methods.  These might include measurement models, as
well as exploratory methods using grounded theoretical approaches,
ecological momentary assessments of youth experiences using technology, or
large-scale developmental, contextual studies of PYD among youth ranging
from kindergarten through high-school.

Authors who plan to submit a manuscript for the special section are asked
to submit a letter of intent (LOI) to cdev@srcd.org
<javascript:_e(%7B%7D,'cvml','cdev@srcd.org');> by May 15, 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. Full
manuscripts will be selected from among these to be submitted for full peer
review. Further details are available in the full call, which includes
manuscript requirements, further examples of possible topics, and further
contact information, and is available at
