Publications: Journal Articles

The approach to method and item development within the network explicitly recognizes not only the desire to serve a monitoring function, but also the requirement that the data can be analysed from a range of theoretical perspectives. There has been a substantial increase in the publication of scientific peer-reviewed papers which illustrate the variety of functions the HBSC data set can serve.

All articles are listed by first author's name, in alphabetical order. Most articles have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). You can type or paste a DOI at www.doi.org/index.html to access the article online.
