Inaugural Issue of Journal of Juvenile Justice Available
October 14, 2011
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) released the new online Journal of Juvenile Justice at its 2011 National Conference, "Children's Justice and Safety: Unite, Build, Lead." The Journal is an accessible, practical tool for a diverse researcher and practitioner audience. The semi-annual, peer-reviewed journal is sponsored by OJJDP and will address a variety of issues in juvenile justice, such as juvenile victimization, delinquency prevention, intervention, and treatment.
The inaugural issue covers topics ranging from the unique risk factors associated with crossover youth to the benefits of comprehensive restorative justice programs. Articles that report the findings from evaluations of Parents Anonymous and King County's Child Protection Mediation Pilot showcase programs that demonstrate promise in reducing child maltreatment and increasing the efficiency of case processing, respectively. Additionally, the journal includes items on the development of standards for defining and measuring recidivism and a method that may improve the reliability of juvenile justice screening and assessment instruments.
