About the Journal of CSWB

The Journal of CSWB is the flagship publication of the Community Safety Knowledge Alliance (CSKA), a Canada based consortium of public, private and academic interests which aims to advance the knowledge, social science and evidence base in support of multi-sector approaches to building stronger and healthier individuals, families and communities in Canada and beyond.

The Journal of CSWB is a peer-reviewed and open access publication that is positioned to be the authoritative global resource for high-impact research that spans all human service and criminal justice sectors. The journal showcases the latest research, originating from within Canada and/or abroad, and relevant to Canadian and international communities and professionals. The journal aims to attract a broad audience of multi-sector policymakers, practitioners and researchers worldwide. In 2018, the journal became the official peer-reviewed publication of the global Law Enforcement Public Health community (LEPH).

The journal publishes original works that may include Original Research (both Quantitative and Qualitative Studies), Social Innovation Papers, Policy and Systemic Change Propositions, Random Control Trials and other Experimentation, Program and Horizontal Evaluations, Review Articles, Practice Guidelines, and thought-provoking Editorials and Commentaries.

Our Vision: Improved social equity and well-being outcomes for individuals, families and communities, everywhere.

Our Mission: To advance knowledge, evidence and dialogue to support the considered adoption of public policy, the sustainability of related practices, and the best principles of multi-sector collaboration, at the intersections among health, education, human services and criminal justice systems. Our core principles are reflected in the four primary Editorial Sections that further underpin this mission: Trust, Strengths, Services and Justice.
