We would be happy to consider publishing your work if it fits in to our studies of penology and corrections. Our interests are fairly broad, and range from historical studies of jails and prisons, textbooks related to institutional and community corrections, as well as studies of correctional issues. In addition, we will also consider publishing materials related to correctional training as well as works intended for correctional practitioners.
To initiate the process please send an abstract of the work, the table of contents, and your c.v. or resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If interested, we will ask for more information or a complete manuscript. All manuscripts published by Newgate are sent out for peer review – typically three to five reviewers will be asked to comment about the strengths of the manuscript.
The Review Process
The reviewers have wide-ranging expertise within the fields of penology and corrections (and have served as reviewers and/or associate editors for a wide range of journals – or have extensive experience as practitioners) and thoroughly review each submission.
The review process considers the following criteria:
- The research topic is current, policy relevant, and is being examined in a unique way.
- The literature review is thorough and reflective and represents a contribution to the field.
- The methodology is cutting edge and instructive or exemplary in its development.
- The results and conclusions are thoughtful, in-depth, and inform researchers, policymakers and practitioners as well as students interested in this area of study.
- Finally, the work should be well-written and should clarify the relationship of the research to what is already known. Limitations should be honest and clear.
We will be happy to offer contracts to work appropriate to the list and passing this review process.
