  • Articles by practitioners, policy makers and academics conveying the latest in thinking and findings in this fast growing arena

The editors and editorial board have some changes to announce.


This will be the last hard copy issue of the British Journal of Community Justice.  The way in which readers now access journals and articles has dramatically changed since the first issue in 2002.  To respond to this, the editorial board has decided that the journal will become a free online publication from the next issue onwards.


At the same time another change will be taking place.  The next issue and all fourteen years’ worth of back issues will be hosted on the De Montfort University website:


After fourteen years, the Hallam Centre for Community Justice at Sheffield Hallam University will be closing on the 7th January 2017.  The centre has published the journal and provided the administrative support during this time.  This responsibility will now move to De Montfort University.


At the same time, our intention is to move to publishing two issues of the journal per annum instead of the current three.


We look forward to engaging with our readership in a different way.  For further information, please contact Jean Hine, co-editor, at or
