Call for Papers: CBPR Approaches to Youth Violence Prevention

Posted by on April 6, 2009

Progress in Community Health Partnerships Call for Papers for Special Journal Issue on Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Approaches to Youth Violence Prevention
Deadline: July 1, 2009

The goal of this theme issue is to highlight research on youth violence prevention that engages the community in the planning, implementation, and evaluation phases. Manuscripts can be submitted for peer review in any of the following categories: Original Research; Work-in-Progress and Lessons Learned; Community Perspective; Policy and Practice; Theory and Methods; Education and Training; Practical Tools; Systematic Reviews. We believe this is an excellent opportunity to showcase the work of youth violence prevention researchers, practitioners, students, and community collaborators that is consistent with the principles and practices of CBPR. We strongly encourage the submission of articles jointly authored by academic and community partners (e.g., non-profit organizations, government agencies, schools). Potential examples of the application of CBPR to youth violence prevention include, but are not limited to, the following: Development and/or evaluation of a youth violence prevention program/intervention or policy; Translation of research into policies and practices that influence the prevention of youth violence; Incorporation of youth voice and participation into youth violence prevention programming; Development of a training program or curriculum for students, researchers, or community members regarding the application of CBPR to youth violence prevention; Surveillance efforts related to youth violence; Community mobilization to address issues related to youth violence prevention; Community partners’ perspectives on collaborating with researchers to develop, implement, or evaluate a program or policy related to youth violence prevention.  Instructions for specific types of articles and submitting manuscripts can be found at:
