Youth and Family Scholarship

Extension faculty publish for a wide variety of audiences including practitioners, researchers, educators, counselors, and community stakeholders. Identifying the appropriate journal to publish a body of work can be a daunting task, given the diverse number of audiences and publishing outlets. The following collection of resources is intended to support Extension faculty working with youth and families who are looking to publish in an interdisciplinary field. An appendix of completed journal matrices is included to aid faculty in identifying the most appropriate journal outlet for their work. The journal matrices provide pertinent information about each respective journal and how to submit a manuscript to that journal. This collection of journal matrices is a helpful tool for Extension faculty who focus on one or more of the following areas: youth development, family studies, parenting, health and wellness, nutrition, prevention science, obesity prevention, leadership development, volunteer management, financial education, literacy, cultural adaptations, financial literacy, community development, advocacy, and early learning.

By the Numbers

There are many resources available to assist Extension faculty in producing scholarly work. Probably the easiest and most accessible resource is simply talking with colleagues about their scholarly efforts. Figure 1 highlights the most common types of scholarship published from 2012–2014 by WSU Youth and Family Extension faculty affiliated with the youth and family program unit.

Presentation abstracts accepted via a blind review process, posters accepted via a blind review process, and peer-reviewed journal articles are the three most common publication types. According to the 2014 Tenure and Promotion Criteria for Extension Program Unit Faculty, there are five different categories of scholarship that Extension faculty can target to develop their body of work, and within each category there are several different types of scholarship to choose from. Based on the 2015 youth and family survey data, only four webpages were published, three videos, two social media pages, one blog, and zero online modules, decision aids, or mobile apps. Considering today’s rapid advancement in technology and the variety of ways information is being disseminated today, there exists a tremendous opportunity for Extension faculty to explore educational digital media as a potential avenue for peer-reviewed Extension scholarship (e.g. videos, apps, social media, online modules, webpages, blogs, etc.).
