Childhoods Today: An online Journal for Childhood Studies.
Childhoods Today is a e-journal published, bi-annually in the first instance, by the Centre for the Study of Childhood and Youth at the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom, and supported by the Worldwide Universities Network.
The aim of the journal is to publish high quality empirical and theoretical work by up-and-coming researchers in the field of childhood studies and to provide a reference for others working in this and related fields. Childhoods Today is an externally reviewed journal that is unique in providing an international forum designed exclusively for the publication of articles by postgraduate students (i.e. those studying for their MA, M.Phil. or PhD, as opposed to post-doctoral students) working in the field, which can be accessed by other interested postgraduates and academics.
First published in 2007, the journal has already achieved a high level of International recognition and received an endorsement from The Board of Childwatch International.
The website has already had in excess of 4,000 'hits' from all over the world. It is also archived by the British Library. Childhoods Today was founded by Professor Adrian L. James of the University of Sheffield and the Norwegian Centre for Child Research (NOSEB), University of Trondheim. It is currently edited by Dr. Afua Twum-Danso of the Department of Sociological Studies at the University of Sheffield
