Compromised or Competent: Analyzing Twin Children’s Social Worlds
From conception twin children are compelled to share their environment and its resources. This includes social resources of attention from, and social interac- tions, with others. This special issue specifically focuses on the social world of twin children and addresses three key questions: • How is the social world of twins different from that of a single-born child? • Does the twin situation limit social experience and compromise social development? • Does the twin situation enhance social experience and facilitate social competency? The issue includes studies from a range of disciplines, including psychology, sociology, anthropology and behavioral genetics, and utilizes a range of approaches to the analysis and understanding of the processes and outcomes of twin children’s social experiences.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
