CARRILO-AVILA, Sonia; RIPOLL-NUNEZ, Karen  and  RUIZ, José Ignacio. Four decades of developmental psychology in the Latin American Journal of Psychology. Rev. Latinoam. Psicol. [online]. 2008, vol.40, n.1, pp. 141-165. ISSN 0120-0534.

The purpose of the present article was to assess research tendencies in Developmental Psychology in Latin America observed in the publications of the Latin-American Journal of Psychology between 1969 and 2006. One of the main questions addressed was: What themes have dominated developmental research in different regions and in each of the decades analyzed? Findings indicated that a large number of articles focused on topics related to assessment and intervention; similarly, researchers from southern and Andean countries showed more developmental publications during this period of time. Implications for developmental research in Latin America are discussed.

Keywords : Developmental; Psychology; Latin-America.
