ABOUT THE JOURNAL
The Journal of Human Trafficking is devoted to the dissemination of international scholarship on all issues related to trafficking in persons— from prevention and intervention, to protection and prosecution. The journal’s focus is inclusive to men, women, children, and transgendered individuals and open to all types of trafficking— bonded labor, forced labor, sexual exploitation, and child trafficking. Submissions on any aspect of the phenomenon are encouraged and should include but are not limited to articles on pre-trafficking circumstances/situations (e.g. economic hardships/poverty), recruitment, transit, experiences during exploitation, types of exploitation, departure, re-integration, service/care and rehabilitation of victims, as well as prevention, prosecution, and policy analyses.
The Journal of Human Trafficking publishes research on human trafficking from a variety of disciplines including, but not limited to, anthropology, criminology, communications, family studies, forensic science, social work, sociology, law, medicine, nursing and public health, psychology, and public policy. Although focused on research, the journal serves as a bridge between theory, applied research and practice to help fill the gap in understanding between scholars and practitioners.
The Journal of Human Trafficking receives all manuscript submissions electronically via its Editorial Manager site located at http://www.editorialmanager.com/jht. Editorial Manager allows for submission of original and revised manuscripts, and facilitates the review process and internal communication between authors, editors, and reviewers via a web-based platform.
