IJRJ - Call for peer reviewers

Call for peer reviewers


ISSN (online): 2056-2985 |

The co-Editor of the Internet Journal of Restorative Justice (IJRJ), Dr. Theo Gavrielides, is currently recruiting new reviewers to carry out double blind review for the Journal.

About the journal

The Internet Journal of Restorative Justice (IJRJ) is a double-blind peer reviewed journal with a unique practical approach to researching and investigating restorative justice.

IJRJ' primary aim is to publish scholarly and peer-reviewed articles of the highest standard from many areas of expertise including restorative practices in schools, neighbourhoods, organizations and businesses, family matters and (youth) care, restorative justice in the criminal and juvenile justice system, restorative justice in prison settings and restorative aftercare. IJRJ’s aims include:

  • Inform and influence social justice policy at national and international levels
  • Enable those with limited resources to freely access scholarly and peer-reviewed articles on restorative justice including students, practitioners, and the public
  • Push the barriers of restorative justice and challenge conventional approaches
  • Enable junior researchers to publish alongside leading names in restorative justice, and encourage a dialogue between various generations of academics
  • Increase awareness of the restorative justice concept and help address misconceptions about its potential and limitations.

Who are we looking for?

Individuals with an academic qualitative or quantitative research background who have an interest in restorative justice. Previous publishing experience is desirable.

Why become a reviewer?

  • This is a great opportunity to become involved with journals which are vital for everyone involved in youth matters internationally.
  • You can download for free all articles published during the year you serve as a reviewer.

How to apply

If you are interested in becoming a reviewer please send a copy of your CV to the Editor Dr. Theo Gavrielides
