Journal of Criminological Research, Policy and Practice
An applied international journal covering policing, corrections and community justice

Editors-in-chief:

Dr Philip Birch, University of Western Sydney, Australia
Professor Jane L Ireland, University of Central Lancashire and Ashworth Research Centre, Mersey Care NHS Trust, UK

This new journal provides a unique single outlet which covers the notion of a ‘seamless disposal’, covering contact with the police, courts and sentencing through to custody and release. The journal will also consider how criminal justice institutions engage with the community and non criminal justice agencies.

Each issue will include papers covering three areas of:

  • Initial and preventative contact
  • Containment (involving police, courts and custody)
  • Through-care, resettlement and community based work

The journal will publish research from a variety of perspectives including the offender(s), the victim(s), communities and the professionals involved.

To submit a paper or to find out more about this journal contact the editors-in-chief.
