Prison Service Journal special edition planned

Call for expressions of interest


Professor Alyson Brown, member of the editorial board for The Prison Service Journal, has described their interest in publishing a special historical edition. She asks for anyone whose research is prison-related and interested in contributing to the special edition to contact her. Her institutional profile and contact details can be found here.

The Prison Service Journal is peer-reviewed and published by HM Prison Service of England and Wales. It is hosted by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies who describe the journal’s purpose as ‘to promote discussion on issues related to the work of the Prison Service, the wider criminal justice system and associated fields’. It publishes short articles of up to 4000 words and is Open Access. More about the journal can be found here.

If you’d like to take a look at a previous edition that has included historical material, Alyson suggests this link (PDF).

The garden is bounded by a high wall against which is an area sectioned off by an iron fence. There are buildings - a factory chimney and church tower - in the distance beyond the wall.
