Call for Papers – Intimate Partner Stalking Research
A special issue for Journal of Family Violence

Special Issue co-edited by Bethany L. Backes, Laura Johnson, and Judy L. Postmus

Intimate partner stalking (IPS) is a vastly understudied area that is mostly understood through descriptive research. A special issue of the Journal of Family Violence is scheduled for early 2020 and seeks to provide a framework for growing the field of stalking research by discussing what is currently known about intimate partner stalking victimization, perpetration, and responses to the crime of stalking. The special issue focus on the strengths and limitations of existing research to identify gaps related to design, methods, services, and policies to establish an innovative framework for continued research. The guest editors of this special issue will be Bethany Backes, Director of Research and Evaluation at the Institute of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, Steve Hicks School of Social Work, University of Texas at Austin; Laura Johnson, Assistant Research Professor, Center on Violence Against Women and Children, School of Social Work, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey; Judy L. Postmus, Professor and Director of the Center on Violence Against Women and Children, School of Social Work, Rutgers, University.

The special issue will be comprised of approximately eight articles centered on a systematic review of the criminal justice response to stalking victims and address the recommendations from that review. Below are the proposed topics and themes for inclusion in the special issue:

  • Innovative design and methodological approaches for the study of IPS
  • Sampling strategies in studying IPS victimization and perpetration
  • Challenges in measurement, instrumentation, and data collection
  • Perspectives of criminal justice (e.g. law enforcement) and/or community-based entities (e.g. advocates) in their response to victims and perpetrators1
  • Implications for policy and practice

Papers submitted for this special issue should report on research undertaken on IPS and can include perspectives of perpetration and victimization, prevention and response, and effective practice and policy. Conceptual and theoretical papers are also welcome. The editors invite scholars working across the social sciences and related fields including social work, criminology, law, psychology, public health, women’s studies, public policy, sociology, and other allied disciplines.

The Journal of Family Violence (JOFV) is a peer-reviewed publication committed to the dissemination of rigorous research on preventing, ending, and ameliorating all forms of family violence.

JOFV welcomes scholarly articles related to the broad categories of child abuse and maltreatment, domestic and partner violence, and elder abuse. Within these categories, JOFV emphasizes research on physical violence, psychological violence, sexual violence, and homicides that occur in families. Studies on families in all their various forms and diversities are welcome.

JOFV publishes studies using quantitative, qualitative, and/or mixed methods involving the collection of primary data as well as the analysis of administrative and secondary data. Rigorous systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and theoretical analyses are also welcome. To help advance scientific understandings of family violence, JOFV is especially interested in research using transdisciplinary perspectives and innovative research methods. Because family violence is a global problem requiring solutions from diverse disciplinary perspectives, JOFV strongly encourages submissions from scholars worldwide from all disciplines and backgrounds.

Authors interested in publishing in the special issue should submit an abstract of no more than 300 wordsby October 1, 2018. Please submit abstracts to ljohnson@ssw.rutgers.edu.
