Call for Proposals - Race, Ethnicity and Child Maltreatment
Editors-in-Chief: Prof. Carmit Katz and Dr. Jill McLeigh
Guest editor: Afnan Attrash-Najjar
The International Journal on Child Maltreatment: Research, Policy and Practice is soliciting proposals for an upcoming thematic issue focused on race, ethnicity and child maltreatment. Across the globe, the presence of disproportionality and disparity within child welfare systems is well known.
The persistence of inequities across races and ethnicities is common knowledge, and yet, disproportionality and disparity remain intact. For this special issue, we are interested in the extent to which such social conditions and systemic responses affect the entrance into child welfare and efforts to use that knowledge to design interventions and policies to mitigate the impact of racism.
Examples of topics of interest for the Special Issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
Submissions may include:
A variety of article types, including empirical research, editorials, commentaries, policy analyses, historical overviews, theoretical or review articles, and innovations in policy or practice.
For consideration in the special issue:
Authors should submit proposals of no more than 250 words by July 31, 2023 to the email: email@example.com
Proposal should include: an abstract, intended article type, and the full list of authors.
Approval of abstracts will be sent out by August 15, 2023, and final manuscripts are due February 15, 2024. The issue will be published in June 2024. ,
International Journal on Child Maltreatment is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal that serves as a forum for innovative efforts to promote policies, interventions, and programs focused on the safety, protection and welfare of children. For more information, visit the Journal’s homepage.
