Welcome to the Children’s Research Digest: Children Should be Seen AND Heard, published by the Children’s Research Network in December 2020. This issue showcases some of the presentations made by CRN members at the CRN Annual Conference in 2019. It includes 14 articles - a combination of short papers and research summaries.

A sincere thank you to our guest editor, Professor Imelda Coyne, for her comprehensive guest editorial; our Editorial Panel members Dr Leonor Rodriguez, Aoife Dare and Dr Grainne McKenna for their time, thoroughness and commitment to the review process; and of course all the authors who so generously shared their research. Many thanks also to the Children’s Research Network / Trinity Research in Childhood Centre Research Administrator, Mary Kennedy, the CRN Advisory Committee, and the TRiCC Directors for their ongoing support.

Feel free to download the full issue, the 'at-a-glance' summary version (involving the guest editorial plus short tasters of each of the articles), or browse through the individual articles below.

Enjoy this special issue!
