Publication series of the Finnish Youth Research Society

The purpose of the Finnish Youth Research Society's publication series is to provide publications that are socially relevant, scientifically sound and take up fresh perspectives. The publication series is composed of monographs such as doctoral dissertations related to contemporary youth issues, article collections and research reports.

We publish both publications resulting from our own research projects and manuscripts provided by external contributors. Our best-known publications include the regularly published Youth BarometerStudy of Children's and Young People's Leisure Activities and Youth Living Conditions Yearbook.

The majority of the publications of the publication series are in Finnish, but the list includes some titles also in English and Swedish. Our publications in English are listed below. All publications have English summaries. Summaries can be found from the page Abstracts of publications.

For a complete list of the publications in the publication series, please visit our Finnish website. We publish both printed and electronic publications.
