Aim & Scope

The Journal of Offender Rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary journal of innovation in research, services and programs in criminal justice and corrections. The journal is an essential professional resource for practitioners, educators and researchers who work with individuals involved in the criminal justice system and study the dynamics of rehabilitation and individual and system change. Original research using qualitative or quantitative methodology, theoretical discussions, evaluations of program outcomes, and state of the science reviews will be considered. A primary journal focus is the use of research to improve practice, with articles clearly defining the theoretical and empirical basis for program models and establishing connections between research findings and needed interventions and services. Programs and services for correctional populations residing in prison, as well as in the community, are examined.

The range of topics included in the journal is broad and encompasses alternatives to incarceration; community reentry and reintegration; alcohol, substance abuse and mental health treatment interventions; services for correctional populations with special needs; recidivism prevention strategies; educational and vocational programs; families and incarceration; and culturally appropriate practice and probation and parole services.

Peer Review Policy: All review papers in this journal have undergone editorial screening and peer review.
