Deadline for submission is November 15, 2015

YOUNG is the main academic forum for truly interdisciplinary youth research, covering among other areas sociological, anthropological, educational and media studies perspectives on youth, youth cultures and questions related to young people more generally. An indispensable read for anyone interested in the research area.’ —Göran Bolin, Södertörn University, Sweden

‘Already its first volume back in 1993 empowered youth studies by making innovative interdisciplinary and transnational moves that remain vital to the contemporary research agenda.’ —Johan Fornäs, Södertörn University, Sweden

'Sub-titled the 'Nordic Journal of Youth Research', YOUNG does much more than give space to the very well-established expertise in youth research found in the Nordic countries. To me, YOUNG is one of only a very few journals that can be relied upon so consistently to publish new, critical research and theory about youth and young people that is important internationally.',— Prof. Robert MacDonald BA DPhil FAcSS, Professor of Sociology/ Deputy Director - Social Futures Institute School of Social Sciences and Law, Teesside University Middlesbrough UK
