Presenting research that bears on important conceptual issues in developmental psychology, Developmental Review: Perspectives in Behavior and Cognition provides lifespan, aging, infancy, child, and adolescent behavioral scientists with authoritative articles that reflect current thinking and cover significant scientific developments. The journal emphasizes human developmental processes and gives particular attention to research that is relevant to developmental psychology. This research has fundamental implications for the fields of cognitive science, developmental sciences, decision sciences, pediatrics, psychiatry, and neuroscience.

Developmental Review publishes two types of articles: (1) theory papers that advance new empirically tested hypotheses or frameworks and (2) literature reviews that include but go beyond summaries, instead rigorously interpreting findings about important phenomena. Unlike many other journals, we do not publish empirical reports, although data can be used to test and illustrate new theories. That is, the journal publishes original integrative reviews of empirical studies from important segments of the developmental psychology literature, and it also publishes original theoretical articles on important segments of the developmental psychology literature. For both types of submissions, we emphasize research that tests hypotheses about underlying processes or mechanisms of behavior. Manuscripts are also reviewed for their novelty, currency, and relevance to our readership.
