Call for Papers for a Special Issue on


Guest Editor: Dr. Dagmar Kutsar, Associate Professor, Institute of Social Studies, University of Tartu, Estonia

Population Review invites submissions of high-quality research papers on topics that were presented/discussed at the 7th ISCI conference Children of the World: Touch of Change – Theories, Policies and Practices,’held on 27-29 August 2019 in Tartu, Estonia. Accepted papers will comprise a special collection – one based on the belief that it is time to focus on children’s subjective well-being as an emerging interdisciplinary field of knowledge.

The special collection will be guest edited by Dr. Dagmar Kutsar, who has published articles on the subjective well-being of children in peer-reviewed journals (Child Indicators Research, Children and Youth Services Review, Journal of Emotional Education, among others) and co-edited several books on the subject (Internationalisation of Social Sciences in Central and Eastern Europe: The ‘Catching up’ – a Myth or a Strategy? (2010), Children and Non-Discrimination: Interdisciplinary Textbook (2014), Local Welfare Policy Making in European Cities (2015), among others).

The editor welcomes submissions that combine theory with solid empirical research.  In addition to articles, the journal publishes research notes, which are condensed reports of study results. Research notes are peer-reviewed, contain abstracts, and can be purely descriptive. Content is published online immediately after acceptance.
