We welcome papers on all aspects of Australasian young people (see the topics listed in this website for general subject areas).
Papers are reviewed internally, then peer-reviewed if they pass internal review. Peer review is optional for papers submitted to the column ‘Practice Notes’, which contains articles of particular relevance to practitioners working directly with young people.
A list of our consulting editors is available.
