Call for papers
The guest editors of the journal are seeking manuscripts for a 2019 special issue on child neglect.
Child neglect is the most common type of maltreatment, with long term damaging consequences for children, families, and societies. Nonetheless, it has received limited scientific and public attention globally. This Special Issue offers an opportunity to contribute to an interdisciplinary understanding of the complexity of conceptualizations, determinants, and consequences of child neglect and, in so doing, to reforming child protection systems in high-, middle- and low-income countries.
We favor a broad view of child neglect that focuses on the child and goes beyond parents, families, and communities to encompass the role of the State. As such, the issue is not restricted to definitions that determine the grounds for intervention by State child protective agencies nor to settings with formal/regulated child protection systems. We welcome empirical research, literature review, and conceptual submissions with direct implications for measurement/indicators covering any type and dimension of
inadequate care and protection of children, regardless of who is responsible, with consequences in all spheres of child development/wellbeing. Empirical articles should be framed within theoretical frameworks and theoretical articles should explore policy and practical implications. Within ecological conceptualizations of neglect, we seek submissions that explore protective factors and/or effective community or institutional interventions and policies for the prevention of neglect and associated consequences for children across different developmental domains.
Scholars from any country and any theoretical framework using scientifically sound qualitative and/or quantitative methods are invited to submit their child neglect work for
consideration. Submissions that use multiple data sources, examine neglect in its larger political and economic context, and incorporate the perspectives of children and families
from diverse cultural contexts and caregiving environments are particularly encouraged.

    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.
