"We expect that [this new journal] will make a significant contribution to the further development of knowledge about the history of the family in various social and cultural contexts....The Quarterly will publish essays in the history of the family, household and kinship, marriage, childhood and youth, the life course and aging, and historical demographic topics as these relate to the family. In addition, the Quarterly will contain book review essays, reports in the form of research notes, descriptions of data bases and other source materials, and conference reports. It will also publish special issues devoted to specific topics and regions."

62:30795 Jones, Huw; Woods, R. I. International Journal of Population Geography. Vol. 1, No. 1, Sep 1995. 109 pp. John Wiley and Sons: Chichester, England. In Eng.
"IJPG is a broadly based journal reflecting the research interests of geographers, demographers and social scientists in general. Many of its articles will report empirical findings, but they will do so in ways that are accessible to non-specialists since they will draw implications for theory or policy as appropriate. We will also encourage the publication of articles aimed at the enhancement of methodological and theoretical debates and the development of social policy. This broad base will also be reflected in the journal's book review section which will aim to provide critical comment on the best work to appear in the field."
Selected items will be cited in this or subsequent issues of Population Index.
