Aims and Scope (from publisher): Families, Relationships and Societies (FRS) is a social science journal designed to advance scholarship and debate in the growing field of families and relationships across the life course. It explores family life, relationships and generational issues from interdisciplinary, social science perspectives, whilst maintaining a solid grounding in sociological theory and methods and a strong policy and practice focus. The title 'Families, Relationships and Societies' encompasses the fluidity, complexity and diversity of contemporary social and personal relationships and their need to be understood in the context of different societies and cultures.

International and comprehensive in scope, FRS covers a range of theoretical, methodological and substantive issues, from the complexities of time, space, mobility and social change, to debates around family forms, practices and resources, intergenerational care and support, intimacy, individualisation, inter-dependency, identity, gender and generation. Encouraging methodological innovation, a life course perspective and dynamic approaches, the journal transcends traditional boundaries that typically focus on one life course stage, one configuration of families or relationships, or one society.

Articles and contributions are drawn from disciplines and subject areas across the social sciences and related lifecourse disciplines, for example, sociology, social policy, social work, childhood studies, demography, youth studies, family studies, gender studies, ageing and gerontology, health and social care, education, psychology, social history, socio-legal studies, politics, criminology, and psycho-social studies.

The applied focus of the journal embraces a diverse global field and encourage a critical engagement with policy and practice developments and issues within and across welfare regimes.
