The Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth welcomes submissions of original article length manuscripts devoted to the historical experiences of children and young people without geographic or chronological limitations. All articles selected as appropriate will be anonymously peer-reviewed by experts in the author's field of study. The journal does not accept material that has been previously published or is under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should be submitted in English with American usage and spelling.
The Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth includes reviews of recent books published in the field. If you are interested in having your books reviewed in the journal please send copies to the address above.

The Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth publishes original essays of approximately 8,000 words. Simultaneous submissions are not accepted. We do an initial in-house screening of all essays. If we decide not to send an essay out for external review, it will be rejected within a month. Essays not rejected after in-house review are sent out to two external readers using the double-blind review system. After external review, essays are either 1) accepted, 2) accepted contingent on revision, or 3) classed as “revise and resubmit.” This review takes around 8–10 weeks. If accepted contingent on revision, the author must address concerns of the external reports and send us a revised essay, also explaining how the revised version has answered the readers’ critiques. A decision on these essays is then made in house, usually within a week or two of receiving the revised version. Authors who are invited to revise and resubmit must also explain how they’ve addressed the readers’ concerns. We send the revised and resubmitted essay out again for external review (often to one or both of the original readers). This may take another 6–9 weeks.
