Special Issue: Current Issues in Police Integrity

Special issue call for papers from Policing

Policing: An International Journal of Police Strategies & Management (PIJPSM)  invites submissions for a special issue, “Current Issues Police Integrity,” edited by Drs. Sanja Kutnjak Ivkovich and Maria (Maki) Haberfeld.  Police integrity has been defined as “the normative inclination among police to resist temptations to abuse the rights and privileges of their occupation” (Klockars, Kutnjak Ivković, & Haberfeld, 2006).  In response to the development of police integrity in the criminal justice system, we seek to attract papers that address a variety of topics related to police integrity.  Specifically, we solicit manuscripts that use the theory of police integrity and the accompanying methodology to explore the contours of police integrity both within the United States and abroad.  The manuscripts could explore empirically the extent of police integrity in general (e.g., the contours of police integrity in the United States), or additional police integrity aspects including (but not limited to) gender and integrity, seriousness of misconduct, and the code of silence.  A discussion of implications for police policy and practice should be included in the manuscript.  Inquiries about the appropriateness of topics can be directed to the special issue editor (Dr. Sanja Kutnjak Ivkovich at [email protected]).  Also, authors interested in submitting a special issue manuscript should email the special issue editor by March 31, 2015 indicating their interest. 

All manuscripts will undergo blind peer review.  Manuscripts should not exceed 7,500 words; double-spaced pages with one-inch margins, including tables, figures, and references.  The word limit is a strict guideline in order to allow for a number of high quality manuscripts to be included in the special issue.  Manuscripts should be uploaded to the PIJPSM ScholarOne website ( no later than October 1, 2015.  Style and formatting guidelines for authors and additional information are available at:
