A summary of Special Collection 3: Contemporary Research on European Fertility: Perspectives and Developments

By Gunnar Andersson, Gerda Neyer

Abstract

Special Collection 3: Contemporary Research on European Fertility:
Perspectives and Developments was produced as a surprise in honor of Jan M. Hoem on his 65th birthday. The authors who have contributed to this special Volume presented their papers at a working party at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, April 2004.
Ten articles were submitted to the journal Demographic Research and went through peer review. They were published, along with an introduction, on 17 April 2004 as the journal’s third "special collection" of material on a common topic. This short summary of the collection has been added to Volume 10 in order to include full details of the collection in the current running volume as well. The following pages list the contributions and give direct links where readers may download the material from the Demographic Research website. A full list of all papers is also available at: http://www.demographic-research.org/special/3/.
