NCFR publishes three international scholarly journals—Journal of Marriage and Family; Family Relations: Interdisciplinary Journal of Applied Family Studies; and Journal of Family Theory & Review. We also produce other publications and products to support the work of family professionals.
NCFR is the sponsor of the journals and, as such, our journals implement NCFR's policies related to inclusiveness and diversity as documented in the NCFR Bylaws, Article XIV.
