About This Journal
The National Youth Advocacy and Resilience 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.
NYAR Journal was originally published under the title National Youth-At-Risk Journal (ISSN: 2470-6426) from 2015-2020. In 2021, the journal title changed to National Youth Advocacy and Resilience Journal (ISSN: 2766-9300).
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.
