About the Journal

The Youth Voice Journal is the leading international, multidisciplinary and peer reviewed publication, specialising in empirical research and theoretical contributions on issues affecting young people. The journal also publishes cases studies and book reviews focused on these issues.

Call for Papers

Young people face unique challenges in a constantly evolving global society. In these upcoming Special Issues, the Youth Voice Journal will provide special attention upon matters where young peoples’ lives are significantly affected and their opinions are marginalised. As a result, we encourage innovate research and submissions centred on the views of young people (e.g. on Politics, youth identity and youth led-research). The journal has previously welcomed articles on youth policy matters with particular interests in

  • Youth Crime
  • Human Rights
  • Citizenship
  • Restorative Justice
  • Youth- led approach to research and policy

Submission Guidelines

If you wish and are interested in contributing to the YVJ, please consult our Author Guidelines and Editorial Policy outlining all key information (including word count, formatting etc.). To submit an article or for any queries contact the editor
