Well-being of children under the age of 9 years old

Edited by Sabine Andresen and Jonathan Bradshaw

We have been invited by the editors of Child Indicators Research to put together a special issue on eight year olds' well-being. The Children's Worlds survey included eight year olds in 15 countries. Most of the results that have been published or in press focus on the 10 and 12 year olds www.isciweb.org. This call is an opportunity for scholars to focus on the eight year old sample. All kinds of papers are invited: conceptual, methodological, findings based on the survey or findings based on other studies of younger children - qualitative or quantitative. Comparative papers are particularly welcomed. The eight year old data is already available to participants in Children's Worlds and will be accessible on the website to all from November 2016. As some of the publications already in press include eight year olds you are encouraged to look at the list of papers on the Children's Worlds Website www.isciweb.org before submitting a proposal.
Authors are invited to submit an abstract of 300 words outlining the content of their proposed paper by the end of 2016. Accepted papers will need to be delivered by end of May 2017 and will be published, subject to peer review, in the first issue of 2018.
Abstracts should be submitted to: hanita.kosher@mail.huji.ac.il

    Child Indicators Research is an international, peer-reviewed quarterly that focuses on measurements and indicators of children's well-being, and their usage within multiple domains and in diverse cultures. The Journal will present measures and data resources, analysis of the data, exploration of theoretical issues, and information about the status of children, as well as the implementation of this information in policy and practice. It explores how child indicators can be used to improve the development and well-being of children.

    Child Indicators Research will provide a unique, applied perspective, by presenting a variety of analytical models, different perspectives, and a range of social policy regimes. The Journal will break through the current ‘isolation’ of academicians, researchers and practitioners and serve as a ‘natural habitat’ for anyone interested in child indicators. Unique and exclusive, the Journal will be a source of high quality, policy impact and rigorous scientific papers.

    Readership: academicians, researchers, government officials, data collectors, providers of funding, practitioners, and journalists who have an interest in children’s well-being issues.
