Publishing Mentorship


We want the publishing process to be a positive one. We are committed to providing our authors constructive reviewer feedback and helpful editorial assistance. To take this one step further, we are piloting a new publishing mentorship effort where we connect authors who are revising their JYD submission with a member of our Publications Committee to support the revision process.

In some instances, this opportunity will be offered to authors by the editorial team. However, if you’d like to request this type of support for your revision, please reach out directly to our editor-in-chief, Kate Walker (

Thank you for making JYD your home for finding and sharing scholarship that bridges youth development research and practice.
