Child Abuse Review is seeking to expand its network of expert Peer Reviewers for the Continuing Professional Development section

The Journal  

Child Abuse Review is a multi-disciplinary journal, providing the latest research, training initiatives and practice developments for all those involved with child protection and safeguarding. The journal publishes six issues a year, including peer reviewed research, continuing professional development papers and an increasing number of Open Access articles.

The journal is supported by a dynamic and diverse international Editorial Board, including nine Associate Editors, a Statistical Editor and an Editorial Manager. It has an Impact Factor of 1.19 and has a successful and expanding social media presence @Child_Abuse_Rev.

Continuing Professional Development

The Continuing Professional Development section invites 2,000 word submissions from practitioners, which highlight issues and implications for contemporary practice. Each submission is peer reviewed by two reviewers with expertise in the field and when accepted, becomes part of a contemporary forum for practice knowledge. Submitting authors can use accepted papers to evidence professional revalidation or accreditation.

The Continuing Professional Development section makes occasional Call for Papers on relevant themes, including a recent successful Call for reflective submissions on the impact of Covid-19.

Peer Reviewing

Due to expanding interest, the Continuing Professional Development section is seeking to expand its network of expert Reviewers. This provides an opportunity to read the latest research, evidence accreditation and expand CPD.  

Peer reviewers should have experience of one of the multi-disciplinary fields of expertise included in the journal’s remit, as well as knowledge and proficiency in a relevant area of safeguarding and child protection.
