Journal – CiP

Childhood in the Past: an International Journal

CiP is the bi-annual journal produced by the Society. It provides an important forum for the publication of papers that deal with all aspects of children and childhood in the past. The focus of the journal is children, childhood and all aspects of the representation of children in the past, and a great variety of source materials; historical, archaeological, anthropological, literary, etc, are used. The Journal fills an important gap in recognising that the study of childhood in the past is a cross-disciplinary venture, requiring communication of ideas across normal academic and chronological boundaries. Papers from all disciplines relating to the study of childhood in the past – archaeological, anthropological, medical, historical, psychological etc, are included in the Journal.

This is a strong and impressive journal which is very well respected and which publishes articles that are extremely well cited. For all of these reasons it fully merits inclusion in SCOPUS

The Journal is peer reviewed and available to purchase on-line at:
