Dr. Roy Joins Editorial Team for New Family Theory Book
Dr. Kevin Roy, associate professor and graduate director in the Department of Family Science, has been selected to serve on the editorial team to develop a new Sourcebook of Family Theory and Research. This publication is one of the foundational resources on theory and methods within the discipline of family science, providing multiple perspectives about a variety of family-related topics for researchers and students alike. Previous editions of the Sourcebook were published in 1979, 1993, and 2005.
The five-member editorial team will take stock of emerging theory and methods and will work with authors to summarize and advance the state of science in the field. This multi-year project typically runs more than 700 pages with more than 100 authors contributing to more than 60 chapters. These chapters include applications of innovative and cutting edge methods; case studies and content-specific theory applications; and extensions of broad and middle-range theories into exciting new future directions.
Dr. Roy joins other editorial members, who include Dr. Kari Adamsons, associate professor at the University of Connecticut; Dr. April Few-Demo, associate professor at Virginia Tech University; Dr. Christine Proulx, associate professor at the University of Missouri; and Dr. Constance Shehan, professor at University of Florida. The sourcebook is sponsored by the National Council on Family Relations, a nonprofit professional association that promotes family research, practice, and education.
