Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD)
Official website: https://www.srcd.org
In 1925, the National Research Council of the National Academies of Science founded the Committee on Child Development which, in 1933, became the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD). At the time, the Committee and then Society identified as SRCD’s goals “to stimulate and support research, to encourage cooperation among individuals engaged in the scientific study of child development, and to encourage applications of research findings.”
Over the intervening decades, these goals have persisted, with the Society’s Strategic Plan now framed more concisely:
The Society for Research in Child Development advances developmental science and promotes its use to improve human lives.
