Editorial Policy

Editorial Philosophy

Authoritative content from Rosen Publishing—the most trusted name in guidance resources for over fifty years—is available online for the first time, in Teen Health & Wellness: Real Life, Real Answers.

In keeping with Rosen tradition, all content in Teen Health & Wellness is created for teens with their unique concerns and perspective in mind.  Information throughout is presented using a sensitive, respectful, and age-appropriate approach. Teen-friendly articles make complex topics understandable. They also give insight into the teen experience—crucial for parents, teachers, librarians, therapists, and others who are part of teens’ lives and who support teens.

Teen Health & Wellness provides comprehensive curricular support. Developed with a team of experienced health and wellness writers, educators, librarians, and expert reviewers, it contains critical information for research and reports, and is closely aligned to curriculum standards.

Teen Health & Wellness is for educational purposes only. While our goal is to provide comprehensive, up-to-date information on teen health and wellness issues, we cannot provide health and wellness advice or send a personal reply to health-related questions. If teens have a question on a health or wellness issue, we strongly encourage them to speak to a qualified medical professional or a trusted adult, such as a parent, teacher, or guidance counselor.

Award-Winning Content

Teen Health & Wellness draws on Rosen’s award-winning series, including Coping, Need to Know, and others.

This resource includes material adapted from an extensive library of more than 700 new and backlist Rosen books from its most trusted and respected series. Through a rigorous editorial process, all content is thoroughly reviewed and revised as needed for online use. Content is written by professional writers, experienced in communicating to a teen audience, and with expertise in varied fields including science, medicine, psychology, guidance, career counseling, and others.

To ensure its accuracy and relevance, all content is reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis. Our standards of editorial integrity mandate that each entry includes the date it was last updated.

In addition, all content strives to be inclusive in terms of race, sex, religion, economic status, and other teen experiences.
