Dubow named editor of Developmental Psychology
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.
