Edit About the JournaThe CYE journal is a peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary, online journal, highlighting the physical environments where children and youth live, learn, work, and play. The journal values the capacity of children and young people to meaningfully participate in the processes that shape their lives and publishes papers from distinct viewpoints, varied approaches, and diverse cultures and regions around the world.

The journal publishes papers in the form of research articles, field reports, and book/media reviews ranging from:

  • Quantitative and qualitative empirical research
  • Theoretical, methodological, and historical investigations
  • Critical literature reviews
  • Design analyses
  • Post-occupancy evaluations
  • Policy studies
  • Program assessments​

CYE seeks to strengthen connections between research and practice. Field reports, in particular, which reflect on lessons learned in the field and the challenging realities of practice, are of great interest to our readership. We value this contribution and remain dedicated to publishing a variety of papers. For this reason, a traditional scientometric impact factor, which is based on a count of all items published in an issue, fails to reflect the impact and influence of CYE research specifically. We are continuously considering new and innovative ways to accurately measure the impact of our research articles. We currently use Google Scholar to measure the citation impact.

The Children, Youth and Environments network disseminates knowledge and stimulates discussion to support inclusive, sustainable and healthy environments for children and youth everywhere. 

The CYE network connects a global community and provides an online forum for active discussion, resource sharing, and the publication of a peer-reviewed online journal.

CYE is now accepting submissions via Scholastica!

We have recently adopted an online academic journal management platform, called Scholastica, to streamline manuscript submission and review processes. Authors can now submit their research articles directly via Scholastica.
