The Journal of Threat Assessment and Management will be an international periodical for professionals and scholars whose work focuses on operational aspects of the assessment and management of risk for interpersonal violence.
The journal will be unique in three ways.
First, it will be devoted exclusively to the subject of violence risk.
Second, it will be applied in nature, dealing with the development, implementation, and evaluation of procedures for assessing and managing violence risk.
Third, it will both reflect and promote the values of interdisciplinarity and internationalism, based on the view that preventing violence requires collaborations that cross professional and, in many cases, political boundaries.
Those who read and write for Journal of Threat Assessment and Management will work in mental health, criminal justice, national security, and private security settings. They will have backgrounds in fields such as policing, criminology, law, psychology, psychiatry, nursing, and social work. What will bind these readers and authors together is their focus on understanding and preventing violence.
