The Editor of the Internet Journal of Restorative Justice, Dr. Theo Gavrielides, is currently recruiting new reviewers to carry out double blind review for the Internet Journal of Restorative Justice. This is an open Call for applications. 


About the journal


The Internet Journal of Restorative Justice (IJRJ) is the leading, international peer-reviewed journal on restorative justice. It was established in 2012 to push the boundaries of criminal justice by adopting a unique, practical approach to researching and investigating restorative justice. The IJRJ remains to be the leading, double-blind, peer reviewed international journal that is exclusively focused on restorative justice theory and practice. It is indexed and ranked by Kudos, The European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS) as well Criminal Justice Abstracts and EBSCO Information Services. It is also in the process of being indexed and ranked by Scopus. The Journal is published by RJ4All Publications.


The Journal's aims include:


  • Push the barriers of restorative justice, and challenge conventional approaches to criminology and criminal justice.

  • Enable junior researchers to publish alongside leading names in restorative justice, and encourage a dialogue between various generations of academics.

  • Increase awareness of restorative justice, and help address misconceptions about its potential and limitations.

  • Build a strong evidence base for restorative justice, and inform and influence criminal and restorative justice policy at national and international levels.

  • Enable those with limited resources to access scholarly work on restorative justice, including students, practitioners and the public.

Individuals with an academic qualitative or quantitative research background who have an interest in restorative justice. Previous publishing experience is desirable.
