Journal

The International Journal of Risk and Recovery aims to publish research and practice based articles for academics and clinicians. The scope of the journal is to deal with medico-legal issues, risk and innovation in rehabilitation in mental health.

The IJRR uses a double blind review process. The submissions will be initially assessed by the Editor prior to a full review. Then the manuscripts suitable will be examined by a minimum of one reviewer. The decision of acceptance or rejection of the submission will be the final decision of the Editor. The reviewers are selected according to their area of expertise (for example, psychiatry, psychology, psychotherapy, law, correctional system) and their ability to provide a scientific opinion on the quality of the manuscripts. The reviewers are expected to provide their review to the Editor within one month. Once the article is submitted, the author should receive the Editor’s decision within a two months period.

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
