New to Routledge in 2015:


The Journal of Human Trafficking is devoted to the dissemination of scholarship on all issues related to trafficking in persons and allied forms of contemporary slavery. The principal aim of the journal is to draw upon insights and expertise from a variety of disciplines and perspectives in order to better understand the global dimensions of – and evolving policy responses relating to – human trafficking. In keeping with this expansive mandate, the journal welcomes submissions in a range of areas, including:

– Enabling factors which contribute to global patterns of human trafficking;
– Connections and intersections between human trafficking, smuggling and migration;
– The theory and practice of resistance, rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration;
– The challenges and complications of prevention, prosecution, and policy intervention;
– The development and operation of legal regimes relating to human trafficking;
– The relationships between human trafficking, prostitution, gender and/or sexuality;
– Links between human trafficking, global governance, and/or the global economy;
– Popular representations of human trafficking and contemporary ‘slavery’;
– Innovative methods and strategies used to research human trafficking and policy responses;
– The effects of human trafficking upon health, psychology, childhood, welfare, and society.

This list is by no means exhaustive. In further recognition of the fact that the category of human trafficking can itself be understood and applied in multiple ways, the journal favors an expansive approach that links trafficking to allied issues such as bonded labor, forced labor for the state, forced marriage, hereditary bondage, wartime enslavement, and the abuse of migrant and domestic workers. Submissions are welcome from researchers, academics, and practitioners from a variety of disciplines and positions, including anthropology, criminology, family studies, social work, sociology, international relations, law, medicine, nursing and public health, psychology, gender studies, political science, and public policy.

All articles submitted to the journal will been subjected to an initial editorial screening and subsequent double-blind external peer review. Submissions adhering to APA style (6th ed.) are preferred.

Manuscripts for the Journal of Human Trafficking should be submitted to the journal’s Editorial Manager site at www.editorialmanager.com/jht.
