Call for Papers

Each year, over 500,000 state and federal offenders leave prison only to be greeted by limited services and programs to help them successfully return to the community. If you would like to submit an academic paper to be published in the next issue of the Justice Policy Journal, on this topic, or on another relevant topic such as the impact of incarceration policies, prisoner re-entry, sentencing reform, drug policy, or juvenile justice policies, review our submission guidelines.

Submissions are accepted throughout the year.
