Children Australia has been re-launched by the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare

Children Australia: Advancing Child, Youth & Family Services publishes evidence, research and commentary from practitioners, clinicians, researchers and policymakers and the children, young people and families they support. The journal welcomes a diverse range of article types about the welfare, wellbeing and development of children, young people and their families.

We’re looking forward to making available all published articles, including all 45 previously published volumes (>2000 articles), open access (free to read) through the journal website. There are no publishing fees for authors.

The three new co-editors-in-chief, Professor Sharon Bessell, Associate Professor Tim Moore and Dr Dave Vicary, are supported by a multidisciplinary Editorial Board of more than 25 members from around Australia.

Submissions are now open for 2024

Stay tuned for announcement of a Children Australia website tour and workshop in November.
