Aims and Scopes. The Journal of Genetic Psychology is devoted to research and theory in the field of developmental psychology. It encompasses a life-span approach, so in addition to manuscripts devoted to infancy, childhood, and adolescence, articles on adulthood and aging are also published. We accept submissions in the area of educational psychology as long as they are developmental in nature. Submissions in cross cultural psychology are accepted, but they must add to our understanding of human development in a comparative global context. Applied, descriptive, and qualitative articles are occasionally accepted, as are replications and refinements submitted as brief reports. The review process for all submissions to The Journal of Genetic Psychology consists of double blind review.
