Aims and Scope: Journal of Adult Development

Journal of Adult Development published in collaboration with the Society for Research in Adult Development, is a transdisciplinary forum for the publication of peer-reviewed, original theoretical and empirical articles on biological, psychological (cognitive, affective, valuative, behavioral), and/or sociocultural development in young, middle, or late adulthood. Working toward an integrated perspective, contributions feature developments in both basic and applied research as well as quantitative and/or qualitative approaches to inquiry. Papers focus on such issues as: the acquisition of moral ideas and principles; the development and character of the ego; the changing nature of human relationships across the life span; relationship between the ethical atmosphere of higher education institutions and the development of adults within them; ways in which clinical interventions and adult developmental characteristics promote development in a variety of settings.
