The Journal of Research on Adolescence announces a call for high quality submissions for a special section dedicated exclusively to ambulatory assessment methods for studying adolescent development. This section is entitled: "Promises, Perils, and Practicalities of Ambulatory Assessment for Capturing Adolescent Development."

Adolescents’ near-constant use of mobile technology provides unmatched opportunities for researchers to deploy novel forms of Ambulatory Assessment (AA) to better understand youths’ day-to-day lives. However, as enthusiasm for this method and its potential applications has grown, so have questions and concerns about how it can be most appropriately applied. Thus, this section will address both opportunities and practical challenges associated with use of ambulatory assessment techniques—including ecological momentary assessment (EMA), experience sampling methodology (ESM), diaries, and wearable sensor monitoring—in research on adolescent development. The primary aim of this section is to serve as a durable resource for scientists working with AA in their own research on child and adolescent development.

Proposal Deadline: August 15, 2017

Manuscript Submission Deadline: December 15, 2017
