European Journal of Policing Studies (EJPS)

The European Journal of Policing Studies is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles addressing the topic of policing and police studies in the broad sense. EJPS aims to provide insights into contemporary policing discussion. It focuses on issues that are of interest to the police and other actors in policing, and that shape (the future of) policing. It offers contributions in a broad domain, including contemporary academic (empirical) research on policing (by the police as well as other actors), phenomena that may be of interest to policing actors, education, policing strategies and styles, accountability and democratic rights, legal and political developments and policing policy and practice.

With its primary aim of disclosing European research into, views on and analyses of policing to the international community, EJPS wants to reach both policing researchers and practitioners. In its ambition to help overcome the language barrier, EJPS aims to disclose research from countries which often remain out of sight in publications and also applauds international comparative research.

The Journal concentrates on contributions from European countries, but contributions from other countries are also welcomed, if they provide added value for the European context. EJPS aspires to have an international reach and the editors aim for inclusion in the Thomson Reuters database (Web of Science). It is published four times a year. EJPS offers quick but thorough review procedures through the expert guidance of an international editorial board and invites authors to submit their articles through the online web application.

The 0 volume is composed of contributions previously published in the Maklu Journal of Police Studies. The contributions are representative of what the EJPS intends.
