Now in its third decade of publication, the refereed Marriage & Family Review has established itself as a journal of distinction in the study of the family unit and the complex issues affecting today's families. With it, you'll stay on top of cutting-edge research, theory, and practice relevant to a wide variety of disciplines--marriage and family studies, sociology, psychology, education, child development, social work, urban and policy studies, anthropology, public health, communication studies, and nursing. Marriage & Family Review publishes mainly thematic issues that bring together the most current research, practice, advances in theory development, and applications of knowledge on a particular topic in the field. Editors Suzanne K. Steinmetz, PhD, MSW, and Gary W. Peterson, PhD, have set several goals for Marriage & Family Review, including: to continue with high-quality thematic issues; to broaden the authorship in terms of guest editors and the disciplines and interdisciplinary areas represented; to increase the role of the editorial board members in the review process for open submission and special issues; to have a selection of thematic issues that are initially published in the journal and are subsequently published as "state-of-the-art" books and handbooks; to publish additional thematic issues that focus on such cutting-edge topics as reproductive technology; reform, change, and innovation in government social policies for the family; computer technology and the world wide web as a means of assisting families; assisting special needs family members to obtain a higher quality of life; and ethical concerns for programs and policies serving families. You'll enrich your professional knowledge base as you gain valuable insights into topics that deal with a vast array of social issues relevant to marriage, family life, family diversity, parent-child relations, intervention, and social policy. These topics are explored from disciplinary, multidisciplinary, and/or interdisciplinary perspectives to give you the broadest and most comprehensive coverage possible. Marriage & Family Review presents articles that not only discuss new research and theory but also assess and evaluate the meaning and importance of many areas of research. You'll see that the journal's multidisciplinary approach makes it a truly resourceful tool for the many professionals, whether socially or clinically oriented, involved in helping couples and families.
