We believe there's a need for interdisciplinary research, conversation, and community around game studies and games-related scholarship. 
We believe the science of games and thriving can be used to support changes to systems that impact youth.
iThrive Research aims to contribute to the scholarship of the power of games. We do that through our peer-reviewed Journal of Games, Self, & Society, and our Juvenile Justice System research project.


Journal of Games, Self, & Society

Journal of Games, Self, & Society (JGSS) highlights work focused on how games, game design, and gameplay contribute to a deeper understanding of learning, health, and humanity.

Juvenile Justice Research
