Aims & scope
Health & Justice is open to submissions from public health, criminology and criminal justice, medical science, psychology and clinical sciences, sociology, neuroscience, biology, anthropology and the social sciences, and cover a broad array of research types. It publishes original research, research notes (promising issues that are smaller in scope), commentaries, and translational notes (possible ways of introducing innovations in the justice system).
Health & Justice aims to:
- Present original experimental research on the area of health and well-being of people involved in the adult or juvenile justice system, including people who work in the system;
- Present meta-analysis or systematic reviews in the area of health and justice for those involved in the justice system;
- Provide an arena to present new and upcoming scientific issues;
- Present translational science—the movement of scientific findings into practice including programs, procedures, or strategies;
- Present implementation science findings to advance the uptake and use of evidence-based practices; and,
- Present protocols and clinical practice guidelines.
As an open access journal, Health & Justice aims for a broad reach, including researchers across many disciplines as well as justice practitioners (e.g. judges, prosecutors, defenders, probation officers, treatment providers, mental health and medical personnel working with justice-involved individuals, etc.). The sections of the journal devoted to translational and implementation sciences are primarily geared to practitioners and justice actors with special attention to the techniques used.
The submissions for the journal are peer-reviewed, according to rigorous standards.
