Journal Youth Justice

Aim & Scope

Youth Justice is an international, peer-reviewed journal that engages with the analyses of juvenile/youth justice systems, law, policy and practice around the world. It contains articles that are theoretically informed and/or grounded in the latest empirical research. Youth Justice has established itself as the leading journal in the field in the UK, and, supported by an editorial board comprising some of the world's leading youth justice scholars, the journal enjoys an ever-increasing international presence in recognition of: Developing interest in juvenile/youth justice theory and system formation within the national and international academic, policy and professional practice communities; The consolidating importance of international legislation, standards, treaties, conventions and rules; Emerging patterns of policy transfer across national borders and notable convergences in international juvenile/youth justice systems, paradoxically located alongside significant divergences within and between national jurisdictions; An ever-increasing interest in effective policy and practice drawing lessons from pioneering approaches to juvenile/youth crime from around the world; The Editors and Editorial board aim to publish material that is both intellectually rigorous and accessible to a wide readership across the national and international academic, policy and practice communities. Youth Justice is essential for: Academic criminologists and social scientists, social researchers and students of youth criminology and youth justice; Policy-makers and government departments; Juvenile justice/youth offending services, probation services and offender rehabilitation agencies, penal reform and criminal justice organisations, legal professionals, police services, prison services and secure facilities, social work professionals, youth and community workers, education and health professionals, drugs and substance misuse agencies; Child welfare organisations and national/international children's rights agencies.
