Subject:Special Issue of Child Maltreatment: Call for Abstracts

Call for Abstracts Child Maltreatment is presently seeking abstracts of potential papers for a special issue of the journal tentatively titled, Child Maltreatment and Psychosexual Adjustment During Emerging Adulthood. Child Maltreatment is the official journal of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children. The journal is devoted to the publication of scientific information and technical innovations in a form immediately useful to practitioners, researchers, and policymakers. It presently has a Thomson-Reuters impact factor of 2.770. This special issue of the journal will include seven papers exploring the relationship between child maltreatment and psychosexual adjustment during emerging adulthood, broadly defined as the developmental period occurring between 18 and 28 years of age. Quantitative research done using survey, case control, or longitudinal designs is acceptable. There is particular interest in longitudinal research examining mediating or moderating influences on the relationship between child maltreatment and a development outcome. Research examining positive developmental outcomes representing resilience in the face of exposure to child maltreatment would also be appreciated. If interested, please send the names and institutional affiliations of potential authors, a tentative title for the paper, and a brief abstract of the study to Thomas McMahon, PhD at thomas.mcmahon@yale.edu by December 1, 2012. Papers prepared with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are welcome. Abstracts do not have to summarize the final results of the study. They just have to identify the proposed area of study. Manuscripts will be limited to approximately 30 double-spaced pages, and they will be formatted according to guidelines outlined in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. If the prospectus is accepted by the editorial board, a formal call for papers will contain more detailed instructions with a deadline for submission. All submissions will be independently reviewed. The target date for publication is April of 2014. Questions about the project can be directed to Thomas McMahon, PhD at (203) 974-5950 or thomas.mcmahon@yale.edu .
