The Children, Youth and Environments (CYE) Journal is a periodical publication that includes authoritative research articles, in-depth analyses, cutting-edge field reports, and critical book reviews, often accompanied by illustrations. It seeks to connect the worlds of research, policy and practice, facilitate the dissemination of knowledge and stimulate discussion in support of inclusive and sustainable environments for children and youth worldwide.

From 1984 through 1995, it was produced in print through the Children, Environments Research Group at the City University of New York with Roger Hart as editor. Since 2003 it has been published online by the Children Youth and Environments Center at the University of Colorado. Endorsed by UN-HABITAT [1] and guided by an international Editorial Advisory Board, the CYE Journal usually appears twice yearly and has readers in more than 160 countries.

The Editors ask authors to consider possible implications of their research and to draw lessons from experiences with approaches that work and others that do not work when dealing with particular problems. This orientation reflects a concern with interdisciplinary collaboration and application.

The CYE Journal publishes papers on a broad range of topics and approaches, including quantitative and qualitative empirical research, theoretical, methodological and historical investigations, critical literature reviews, design analyses, post-occupancy evaluations, policy studies, and program assessments. It welcomes papers from diverse viewpoints, varied approaches, and different cultures.

Although the CYE Journal’s scope is not restricted to a particular disciplinary or professional paradigm, its organizing focus is the physical environment. It takes a special interest in papers that focus on children and youth in environments of disadvantage and those with special needs as well as in papers that recognize the capacity of children and young people for meaningful participation in the processes that shape their lives.


Review Process

Submissions are accepted any time and selected for publication based on recommendations made by referees in a double-blind review process. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two referees chosen for their recognized expertise and matched to the disciplinary nature of the paper. Authors will typically receive a response within three months.


Authors of papers that are accepted for publication will be asked to sign a pre-publication agreement to assign non-exclusive © copyright to CYE. Authors fully retain the right to re-publish their articles elsewhere, provided that re-publication includes an acknowledgement of original publication in CYE, referencing the year, volume, issue and URL.

Submission to CYE implies that the paper is not under simultaneous review elsewhere.

Papers should be prepared according to CYE’s Submission Guidelines, available on its website.
