Family Perspectives

Aims & Scope

Family Perspectives is a student-led effort to publish exemplary student work and expert opinions on contemporary family topics to inform, inspire, and encourage readers in ways that strengthen home and family. We assist writers to find a voice and to have a venue for publishing high-quality academic reviews, research and writing spotlights, insightful feature articles, and guest opinions. The journal is managed, edited, and designed by an editorial board composed of undergraduate students in the School of Family Life, a faculty advisor, a designer, and other SFL faculty on the SFL Public Scholarship Committee who assist in the reviewing process.

In selecting articles for the journal, editors seek those that align well with the BYU Aims to intellectually enlarge, spiritually inspire, build character, and serve communities. We seek evidence-based, thoughtful submissions from students and from the larger community that align well with the School of Family Life’s founding documents and charge.

Articles and other content in these issues do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of Brigham Young University, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint, or Family Perspectives editors. Any comments should be directed to Julie Haupt, Faculty Advisor, 2083 JFSB, Brigham Young University, Provo, UT 84602.
