Winter 2020 Issue: Best of Family Focus (2015-2020)

Nomination Deadline: Aug. 15, 2020

Family Focus has been a resource in NCFR Report since 1999, providing Family Scientists unique perspectives across various topics to inform and advance research, practice, and policy. The winter 2010 and 2015 issues showcased some of the best articles published in Family Focus between 2005-2010 and 2010-2015, respectively. Continuing this new tradition, the winter 2020 issue aims to do the same. This time, we would like to hear from you, all of the readers! Was there an article published in Family Focus between December 2015- June 2020 that greatly influenced your work? Did one of the articles move you to action? Is there an article that you used (and maybe still do) in the classroom or in trainings? We want to know!

Nominate an article for this “Best of Family Focus” issue by emailing the editor at [email protected]. Include in your email the article title, author(s), issue, and URL link (see past issues here) along with a brief explanation (300 word max) why you are nominating the article.

All nominations are due by August 15, 2020. Contact the editor with questions.
