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.
The IJRJ® publishes articles of the highest standard from various areas of expertise including, but not limited, to restorative practices in schools, neighbourhoods, organisations and businesses, family matters and (youth) care, the criminal and juvenile justice systems, prisons and the community. We are also interested in pushing the normative and philosophical boundaries of restorative justice.
The IJRJ® is committed to nurturing fresh thinking and innovation. Ultimately, we want to affect positive change and improve the experience and image of justice. IJRJ is indexed and ranked by Scopus, Kudos, and The European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS) as well Criminal Justice Abstracts and EBSCO Information Services.
