Focus and Scope

The Annual Review of Interdisciplinary Justice Research (IJR) is a double blind peer review journal that publishes articles dealing with thematic issues in law and justice, and related disciplines. The idea began in response to our first conference, “Theorizing Justice”, when Fernwood Press and some members of  CIJS collaborated in publishing a peer reviewed collection of academic papers as a reader entitled “Thinking About Justice”. Subsequently we have published multiple volumes engaging the themes of our conference calls.

Our editors have received submissions from scholars studying issues of justice in the international academic community. Our contributors have been notable academics, theorists, policy specialists, activists, justice practitioners, lawyers, and graduate students. The topics of the papers we have published span the disciplines of law, criminal justice, criminology, constitutional theory, sociology of law, psychology of law, politics, culture and media analysis of justice, poverty and its intersection with justice issues, Indigenous issues of justice, law and justice and economic justice.

Peer Review Process

Regardless of the source of the submission, we embark on a double blind peer review process to ensure that the quality of our publications meets the requisite academic standards. Articles are anonymized and then submitted, after editorial review, to three anonymous expert reviewers. Articles will be accepted, accepted with revisions, encouraged to revise and resubmit, or rejected.

 

Publication Frequency

The IJR is published annually in the late Fall or early Winter. Special volumes may be published at other times in addition to the annual review.
