Advances and New Approaches to the Study of Stress, Early Experiences, and
Developmental (SEED) Science
This is an open call for submissions for a special issue on “Advances and New Approaches to the Study of Stress, Early Experiences, and Developmental (SEED)
Science” in Developmental Psychobiology. This special issue will be co-edited by Dr. Sarah Watamura and Dr. Erika Manczak.
We invite submissions across a range of topics that highlight innovative or important approaches to understanding the roles of stress, early experiences, and development in typical and disadvantaged environments. We are particularly interested in papers that emphasize mechanisms and processes that occur from the prenatal to adolescent period, including (but not limited to): genetic regulation and epigenetic modification, immune system functioning, hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis and/or autonomic nervous system regulation, the microbiome, and markers of oxidative stress, or that utilize large-scale data analysis (‘Big Data’) techniques to explore developmental psychobiological questions. We welcome research articles, research reviews, and brief reports. Interested authors should submit an abstract (250 words) to the editors that summarizes their proposed manuscript. From these abstracts, articles will be selected for full submission.
Abstracts are due by May 15, 2019; authors will be notified by June 1, 2019 regarding invitations for a full submission (due September 1, 2019). Publication date is expected for 2020. Please submit abstracts to the Developmental Psychobiology editorial office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
