The National Partnership for Juvenile Services (NPJS) is pleased to sponsor the Journal of Applied Juvenile Justice Services (JAJJS), a refereed, multi-disciplinary publication dedicated to critically examining a wide variety of topics related to juvenile justice. The journal is intended to disseminate to juvenile justice practitioners and researchers timely information focused on critical issues, including effective strategies and practice; the operation and administration of juvenile facilities such as detention, corrections, residential treatment, shelter facilities, group homes, and other community-based and institutional placements for youth; programming such as educational, recreation, medical and mental health, focus groups, and life skills training; trends in juvenile justice; legal issues that affect juvenile justice practice; ethical issues in the treatment of juveniles; and leadership and training in juvenile justice. The aforementioned is accomplished through research articles, thought-provoking editorials, and book reviews.
