Aims & Scope

The Journal for Evidence-based Practices in Correctional Health began as the electronic publication of The Center for Correctional Health Networks (CCHNet) in 2015 under the Editor-in-Chief Deborah Shelton, PhD, RN, NE-BC, CCHP, FAAN. JEPCH provides an inclusive forum for evidence-based practices in correctional healthcare inclusive of all persons who have had an involvement with the criminal justice system - incarcerated and community-based populations. Attention to the context in which correctional healthcare is delivered is essential, inclusive of systems/models of care, costs and workforce issues. JEPCH publishes up to four Issues/Year: Winter (Jan-Mar); Spring (Apr-Jun); Summer (Jul-Sep); and Fall (Oct-Dec). An Open Call for articles is on-going. An effort is made to release manuscripts within a three-month time line. There are no costs to authors. There is an annual subscription fee of $40. Articles of interest include case studies, policy analyses, continuing education articles, review of literature, systematic reviews, methods and research papers, program evaluation, quality improvement projects, and education research. Additionally, editorials, commentaries, letters to the editor and author responses are welcomed. Proposals for “Special Issues” are encouraged.
