Youth Voice Journal (YVJ™) is the world's leading peer-reviewed journal publishing theoretical contributions and empirical studies on international issues affecting young people and youth work. YVJ™ is published by RJ4All Publications and is ranked and indexed by Scopus, ORCID, Kudos, Criminal Justice Abstracts, EBSCO and ERIH PLUS.
RJ4All Publications has always aspired to be a leader in creating new knowledge and forming public and expert opinion on matters involving youth, justice and equality. When Dr. Theo Gavrielides founded the Youth Voice Journal (YVJ) in 2009, his aim was to create a space that allowed academics and young people to publish their research on a peer-reviewed platform in the hopes that this collection of evidence-based research changes the way we view matters that affect us all. In just the first three months in 2018 and with the support of a new Content Editor, Hanin Khaddour, we have done more work on the YVJ and received more manuscripts than ever before.
Today we are extremely excited to launch the first 2018 Special Issue, with Special Guest editor Dr Jason Schaub from Birmingham University, titled Sexual Orientation and Young People. This release highlights the journey that young people face while dealing with LGBT+ issues.
The full issue can be downloaded here. The following articles that are in the issue can also be downloaded separately:
We excited to share that this year we will be publishing more YVJ Special Issues that focus on Mental Health Issues, Refugees, Young People in Politics and finally Race and Young People.
