Dubow named Developmental Psychology editor | BGSU to mark 100th anniversary of first commencement

Dubow named editor of Developmental Psychology

Eric Dubow
Dr. Eric Dubow's already packed scholarly life is about to become even more intense. Dubow, a professor of psychology at BGSU, has been named incoming editor of the journal Developmental Psychology. He will assume the role in January 2016.

Published by the American Psychological Association, Developmental Psychology is a top-tier, highly selective journal that deals with aspects of human functioning and change across the lifespan. Empirical research is the primary focus; the journal does feature some theoretical research as well.

"We look for a good distribution of topics, but the majority of articles are concerned with childhood and adolescence," Dubow said. "In fact, Developmental Psychology is one of the top journals in child psychology in the world."

As incoming editor, he will be responsible for all new journal submissions starting in January, and will work with current editor Dr. Jacquelynne Eccles for about six months while she wraps up manuscripts already in process. Then Dubow will take over full editorial duties. In preparation, he will spend the next few months familiarizing himself with and compiling databases to aid in his selection of associate editors.

BGSU to mark 100th anniversary of first commencement

For the hundredth year in its history, BGSU will hold commencement exercises. The milestone ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. Aug. 8 in the Stroh Center.

The University, which celebrated its centennial in 2010, held its first commencement in 1915, when 35 women received their degrees from what was then known as Bowling Green State Normal College at a ceremony held in the Chidester Theatre in downtown Bowling Green.

As in 1915, women degree candidates this summer outnumber men 542 to 415.

Of the 957 diplomas to be awarded Aug. 8, 519 are bachelor's degrees, 285 are master's degrees, 34 are doctorates and 56 are associate degrees. Another 74 candidates will receive graduate certificates in specific programs.
