Some time ago, I read an article on the construct of emerging adulthood. The author suggested that future research should compare "emerging adults" with other age groups in terms of psychological constructs that had a tradition before emerging adulthood was suggested. Does it ring a bell? I need the citation and I have no clue where to find it...

Answer
An article criticizing emerging adulthood research is "The Dangerous Myth of Emerging Adulthood: An Evidence-Based Critique of a Flawed Developmental Theory" by Coté (2014).

I am preparing my longitudinal study on the process of forming the vision of own adult life in emerging adulthood. I want to conduct two measurements (8-12 month break) and finally have (in a second measurement) about 100 people (50% men and 50% women). In each measurement participants will have to answer on one open-question (about vision of their own future) and fill out 3-4 questionnaires (summary time of whole one-time examination: c.a. 40 mins).
Basing on your experience - how many people should I test in the first measurement, to have at least 100 participants in the second measurement?
Thank you for your support!

Answer
We cannot predict or expect how many drop-outs would happen. That is the reason why we need to do a power analysis before conducting the study. The power analysis suggests us a minimum requirement (sample size) to ensure statistical staility of the study findings. So once you get the minimum requirement (sample size), it would be better for you to invite more participants than the minimum requirement. And please remember that ensuring "equipose" is important in CER (comparative effectiveness research):

I am looking for any research on vision of own motherhood in young childless women (adolescence, emerging adulthood, early adulthood). I am interested how young women see their future motherhood and the way to become mother.
Important questions for me are:
1) When young women want to have first and last child?
2) How they want to prepare to being a mother?
3) What are their fears about being a mother?
4) How they expect to combine being a mother with other ares of their life (work, romantic relationship, hobby)?
5) What they are thinking about changes in relationship with husband/partner after delivery?
6) How they want to spend time with their children?
7) What they are thinking about their impact on the development of their child?
I need this to my PhD thesis.
Thank You for support!

I am looking to use the shortened 15-item version suggested in a factor analytic investigation by Guo et al., 2016.

Do you know if the instrument is copyright protected? If so, the only individual(s) who can give it to you are the copyright holder.  If not, it makes sense to contact Guo for a copy.  Most of the time, researchers are willing to provide a copy of their instruments/work to those who ask.

You might find this pole worth looking at:

This review is also interesting although  the main discussion is Arnett, so you are probably familiar with the contents:
