Introducing Global Social Challenges Journal: Non-profit, open access publishing for change
How can we re-imagine society in an era of climate change, pandemic, hunger, poverty and other pressing global societal challenges? Significant threats and dangers lie ahead of us, but so do opportunities. This new fully open access, not-for-profit journal aims to facilitate thinking about these positive new trajectories and become the journal of choice to address the complexities of global social challenges across disciplines.
Global Social Challenges Journal will be the first such journal to be based in the social sciences, whilst engaging with research from all fields of study. It will be an important home for research that contributes to the creation of alternative futures that are socially and environmentally just and sustaining.
Justice, Power and Resistance
We are delighted to be relaunching Justice, Power and Resistance (JPR) this September with a special double issue: Pandemics, Policing and Protest.
JPR is the journal of the European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control and promotes critical analysis and connects theory, politics and activism. Working towards social justice, state accountability and decarceration, the journal is a vehicle to advance challenging research that can be used to critically inform contemporary debates and policies.
We are currently accepting submissions. Read the call for papers to learn more.
Journal of Gender-Based Violence
The Journal of Gender-Based Violence (JGBV) acknowledges both the breadth of gender-based violence (GBV) and its links to gendered inequalities. It aims to continue to document the voices and experiences of victims and survivors of GBV, to publish work regarding those who perpetrate GBV and of the varied and complex social structures, inequalities and gender norms through which GBV is produced and sustained.
Take a look at the Editors Choice Collection (Free until 31 July 2021), which includes:
In search of justice and care: how women survivors of violence navigate the Indian criminal justice system
Anjali Dave et al.
