The Journal invites submission of papers that can be digested and appreciated by practitioners, managers, policy-makers and other correctional professionals.

Advancing Corrections Journal, Edition #4-2017

This 4th Edition of Advancing Corrections continues with our ambition to become the premier international, practitioner-oriented Journal in corrections. Once again, we are pleased to include contributions from around the world – the US, England, Ireland, Singapore, Belgium, Australia, Argentina and Chile. The theme for this 4th Edition was also particularly ambitious. We welcomed Featured Articles that would highlight “integrated system-level innovation in how rehabilitative services are delivered – either in prison or in the community”. For our Views and Reviews section, we asked for “qualitative studies of how offenders actually experience the services we provide, and the challenges that staff experience in delivering them”. And in our Practice Innovation […]

Call for Papers – Advancing Corrections Journal, Edition #4 – 2017

Each issue of Advancing Corrections focuses on a particular Theme. For the fourth issue, we would like to build on the Theme of our 19th Annual ICPA Conference and highlight ‘Innovation in Rehabilitation’. We would especially welcome manuscripts for our Featured Articles section that describe ‘system-level’ innovation in how rehabilitative services are delivered – either in prison or in the community. What we are looking for are not examples of single, programmatic approaches but broader, integrated strategies that attempt to improve the way that rehabilitative services are delivered ‘as a whole’. These could be descriptions of services delivered in the prison setting, the community, or ideally, with appropriate continuity from […]

Advancing Corrections Journal, Edition #3-2017

This Edition focuses on the theme of ‘innovative approaches for service-delivery to offenders’. In a recent Strategic Planning session, the ICPA Board endorsed the promotion of evidence-informed practices as one of ICPA’s top three priorities, and so the theme is timely. Modern correctional agencies need to assess the merits of an increasing number of potential innovations (e.g., adopting new technology for services delivery to offenders), or changes in existing practice (e.g., assessment, case management, intervention, or other service-delivery frameworks). What will most likely improve performance is not always clear — is there strong enough evidence to support the change in the context of other agency circumstances, would the new approach […]

Advancing Corrections Journal, Edition #2-2016

This issue includes 15 original papers with authors from Canada, America, the UK, the Netherlands, Australia and Africa. The response to the last Call for Papers was overwhelming and with the support of our international Editorial Board, we could choose ‘la crème de la crème’ for our readers. The mix of authors we have been able to attract is also encouragingly representative of the community of corrections professionals we want to engage – academics and/or researchers, consultants, senior corrections officials, including a few heads of service, front-line practitioners, public and private sector – all with something interesting to say, perhaps said a bit differently in each case, but said with […]
