Youth Violence and Juvenile Justice: An Interdisciplinary Journal provides academics and
practitioners in juvenile justice and related fields with a resource for publishing current
empirical research, discussing theoretical issues, and reviewing promising interventions
and programs in the areas of youth violence, juvenile justice, and school safety. The journal
particularly encourages the publication of program evaluations, policy analyses, empirical
research, practical, theoretical, legal, and qualitative analyses. Interdisciplinary in scope,
the journal serves a diverse audience of academics and practitioners in the fields of criminal
justice, education, psychology, social work, behavior analysis, sociology, law, counseling,
public health, and all others with an interest in youth violence, juvenile justice, and school
safety. Therefore, we welcome articles from practitioners and scholars trained in all
disciplines applying various methodologies to the study of youth violence, juvenile justice,
and school safety. The editor also welcomes proposals for special issues.
Youth Violence and Juvenile Justice is devoted to studying and disseminating the
most current and timely information on the most prominent issues in our field, including
juvenile violence and violence prevention;
juvenile justice system philosophy and operation;
juvenile corrections and correctional programming;
juvenile probation and parole;
juvenile waiver to adult court;
diversion and programs for delinquency intervention;
juvenile gangs and gang prevention;
school safety and violence;
delinquency prevention programs;
juvenile death penalty;
juvenile substance abuse and treatment;
juvenile justice law, policy, and legislation;
exemplary programs in juvenile justice and school safety, including program
evaluations; and
any aspect of youth violence control or programmatic intervention.
Manuscripts should not exceed 35 pages (including text, tables, notes, references, and
other material). The 35-page limit is not a rigid restriction and will be waived in appropriate
circumstances. We discourage excessively long manuscripts, however, and we reserve the
right to deny publication of submissions because of length. The manuscript should also
include a brief abstract of about 100 words. Submissions should be typewritten, double-
spaced, with notes, references, tables, and figures (the latter two to be held to a minimum)
on separate pages, and should follow the format specified in the Publication Manual of the
American Psychological Association (5th edition). The position of tables and figures
should be clearly indicated within the text. All pages should be numbered. Titles and section
headings should be clear, with a maximum of three orders of heading.
Essential notes should be indicated by superscript numbers in the text and presented
at the end of the text before the references. Notes and references should be in double
