About us

We are a peer reviewed open access online journal which articulates, interrogates and debates research, theory, policy and practice on community justice from the United Kingdom and internationally in other jurisdictions. We welcome articles and blogs from academics – early career researchers and established authors; practitioners; policy makers; and commissioners.

We will publish papers as soon as they are accepted and ready for publication and will continue to produce individual issues on a regular basis. All articles and back issues for the journal are now freely available on this website.

The British Journal of Community Justice (BJCJ) is published by the Policy Evaluation and Research Unit at Manchester Metropolitan University. If you are interested in contributing, please contact us at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
