"Growing Up in Rural America" Call for Articles for Russell Sage Foundation Journal of Social Sciences
Monday, August 19, 2019 10:15 AM

There is a recently opened request for articles for a Russell Sage Foundation Journal issue on Growing Up in Rural America, which may be of interest to CRENET members.

The issue will feature original qualitative and quantitative research that focuses on four key life domains: family dynamics, education, economic security, and health.

They are particularly (but not exclusively) interested in studies that expand our current knowledge by 1) examining the links between specific rural contextual characteristics and the wellbeing of children and youth and/or 2) assessing the cumulative or longer-term outcomes for those born and raised in rural areas. They also invite studies that provide a synthesis of person- and place-based policies designed to improve outcomes for rural youths. They encourage proposals from a range of social sciences including economics, education, demography, geography, public health, social work, and sociology.

The complete request for articles is found at: http://www.russellsage.org/publications/request-articles-growing-rural-america

Note that a short abstract (2-pages) is due by Sept. 26.
