It publishes innovative original theoretical, empirical, methodological and review papers dealing with psychological development and developmental psychopathology during infancy, childhood and adolescence. The journal also publishes papers on social policy based on developmental science and which are relevant to education, health or well-being in infancy, childhood and adolescence.
