Aims and scope
Health & Justice presents 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 it. Through meta-analyses and systematic reviews about topics at the intersection of public health and criminal justice, the journal fills a gap in the literature presenting protocols and clinical practice guidelines and encouraging translational science, exploring possible ways of introducing innovations in the justice system.
The journal is open to submissions from public health, criminology and criminal justice, medical science, psychology, sociology, neuroscience, anthropology and the social sciences, and covers a broad array of research types.
Health & Justice aims for a broad reach, including researchers across many disciplines as well as justice practitioners, such as judges, prosecutors, defenders, probation officers, treatment providers, mental health and medical personnel working with justice-involved individuals.
