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.
