IJBD Journal CoverThe International Journal of Behavioral Development (IJBD) was first published in 1978 and today seeks to provide a truly world-wide platform for researchers which can facilitate a greater integrated lifespan perspective. In addition to original empirical research, the Journal also publishes theoretical and review papers, methodological papers, and other work of scientific interest that represents a significant advance in the understanding of any aspect of behavioural development.

IJBD is published six times a year (Jan, Mar, May, Jul, Sept and Nov). This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) International Journal of Behavioral Development is published by SAGE, on behalf of ISSBD, and is available online via SAGE Journals:

"The International Journal of Behavioral Development plays a unique role among publication outlets in the developmental sciences in that it is the only journal that takes a broad view of life span development (from birth to death) and thus provides opportunities for those interested in the process of development across many life stages. It is essential reading for all serious developmental scientists as well as clinicians and policy makers interested in the broad implications of human development across the life span." K. Warner Schaie, Evan Pugh Professor of Human Development and Psychology, The Pennsylvania State University; Affiliate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science, University of Washington

"The world of science has gone international, and all developmental researchers are keen to keep up with international developments. The best way I know is to subscribe to IJBD, and read it!" Professor Terrie E. Moffitt, Institute of Psychiatry, UK

"Globalization facilitates communication about cultures, world problems, and world economics. IJBD facilitates globalization of the science of development and understanding of lives throughout the world."

Professor Elizabeth Susman, Jean Phillips Shibley Professor of Biobehavioral Health in the Department of Biobehavioral Health, at The Pennsylvania State University

"IJBD is one of the premier international developmental journals. It contains summaries of the findings of the very best research on life span development in the world. I regularly assign articles from IJBD to my graduate courses in human development so that they can stay informed about the international research community in human development." Professor Jacquelynne Eccles, University of Michigan
