About This Journal
The National Youth-At-Risk Journal (NYAR Journal) is an open-access, peer-reviewed online journal that publishes educational articles on how to reduce harmful risk conditions and promote the well-being of all youth, especially vulnerable youth in schools, families, and communities. The journal is a publication of the College of Education at Georgia Southern University.
The biannual journal seeks manuscripts that are theoretically sound and data driven with practical applications. Original research studies of promising programs and practices; first-hand descriptions of promising programs and practices in the field; case studies of “successful youth at risk;” action research studies on “how to improve the well-being of youth at risk;” syntheses of literature bridging the gaps between theory, research, and practice; and relevant book and report reviews are welcome.
