Contribute to SRA Online

The Society for Research on Adolescence (SRA) welcomes scholarly articles/blogs related to adolescence based on the criteria described below. Content must be consistent with our mission statement and must be submitted by a member of SRA, an officer of a fellow organization, or an author whose work has recently appeared in the Journal of Research on Adolescence. We welcome the following content:

Articles/Blogs: The SRA website accepts submissions in the areas listed below. Submissions should be approximately 500-750 words, and may be written in an expert or research voice. Submissions are always welcome. SRA Online should not be considered a site of first publication for empirical research or reviews.

Contributors should specify the website section where they intend their article to be published:

  • Research Summaries: Lay language summaries of a specific journal article (in press or published) or a summary of a body of work. These articles may focus on a specific theory/approach, explain a particular methodology, or review findings.
  • Applying Findings: Discussion of the implications of a study (or series of studies) that specifically address how website visitors might use these findings in their own professional or personal interactions with adolescents.
  • Teaching Adolescence: Articles describing an exercise, activity, or assignment that might be used when teaching the topic of adolescence/adolescent development. This content is primarily geared for undergraduate and graduate instructors.
  • Academic Life: Blogs discussing various aspects of academic life, including the dissertation process, job search, being a mentor or mentee, tenure review, and the like.

If you’re interested in writing an op-ed for a “traditional” news website, the New York Times has some recommendations.

Queries and submissions should be sent via our contact form. You can learn more about the online editorial team here.
