About the Journal

Longitudinal and Life Course Studies (LLCS) is the Society's peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the needs of researchers studying the life course and using longitudinal methods at the interfaces of social, developmental and health sciences. It fosters cross-disciplinary and international endeavours and promotes the creation and exploitation of longitudinal data resources as well as their application to policy issues. It provides an opportunity for scholars at all stages of their careers to publish work crossing disciplinary boundaries which is often beyond the scope of more conventional, single-field journals.

In 2018 it was accepted into the Social Sciences Citation Index®, maintained by Clarivate Analytics, along with their Journal Citation Reports/Social Sciences Edition, and Current Contents®/Social and Behavioral Sciences.

It has been in the Emerging Sources Citation Index since 2016, and is also indexed by Google and by the SCOPUS citation database (since 2014).
