International Criminal Justice Review (ICJR) invites submissions for a special issue, “Cross-Cultural and International Investigations of the Victim-Offender Overlap,” edited by Dr. Wesley Jennings. Articles should focus on empirical assessments of the overlap between victims and offenders, particularly with respect to risk and protective factors.
“Cross-Cultural and International Investigations of the Victim-Offender Overlap”
The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2011.
From the Editors
The goal of this special issue is to disseminate new and innovative research that examines the victim-offender overlap cross-culturally and/or internationally.
Specifically, we welcome manuscripts from diverse methodological approaches that focus on empirical assessments of the overlap between victims and offenders as a growing body of literature has indicated that victims and offenders often display similar risk and protective factors and are often the same people. However, the generalizability of the victim-offender overlap has yet to have been fully examined cross-culturally or internationally. All manuscripts should also place emphasis on the implications of the research for policy and practice.
An abstract of approximately 100 words and a brief biographical sketch that includes the author’s current affiliation, research interest(s), and recent publications must accompany the manuscript.
All of the submissions will undergo blind peer review and will be expected to follow the style and formatting guidelines of International Criminal Justice Review.
Manuscripts should not exceed 30 pages double-spaced including tables, figures, and references. Manuscripts should be in MS Word format and conform to the formatting style of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th ed.).
Additional style and formatting guidelines for authors are available at: icj.sagepub.com.
