Sociological Studies of Children & Youth

Sociology Studies of Children and Youth (SSCY) is proud to be sponsored by the American Sociological Association Section on Children and Youth.

The first volume of SSCY was published in 1986, edited by sociologists Patricia Adler and Peter Adler who aptly noted that: "the study of children and child development is empirically and theoretically central to the discipline of sociology." This fact is even more apparent today.

The series provides an outlet for social scientists researching topics related to children or youth. Some volumes emphasize specific themes, while others include a range of chapters on diverse topics. Contributions from all methodological and theoretical orientations are welcome and are double blind peer-reviewed. The volume has a history of publishing work by international scholars and continues to welcome contributions from around the world.
