Call for Field Reports for special issue of Children, Youth and Environments on “Children, Violence, Community and the Physical Environment”

In late fall 2012, the journal Children, Youth and Environments will publish a special issue on the role of physical environments in putting children at risk of violence, in reducing risks of violence, and in creating places of security, refuge and healing. In addition to research articles, the journal carries Field Reports: short articles of about 3,000 words which describe innovative initiatives to improve environments for children and youth—in this case, by reducing risks of violence or creating places of safety and healing. 

Submissions deadline:   October 15, 2012.

Field reports briefly tell the story of a program, place or policy in a reflective way, emphasizing lessons learned and information and insights that may be useful for other practitioners.  For Guidelines for Field Reports, see
