"J. of Forensic Social Work" & "J. of Security Education" from Haworth in 2006.
Haworth said the journal is being designed to offer information that will help social workers successfully advocate for their clients and carries content on such topics as preparing and appearing as a witness, government-mandated reports, and dealing with police officers, defense attorneys, judges, juries and prosecutors. It also discusses the intersection of legal issues with social and psychological ones, such as definitions of competence, the psychopathology of the individual, domestic violence, and child custody.
Regular columns will also deal with issues in probation and parole, social workers as custodians/trustees and criminal evidence and proceedings, with discussions on general overview of the criminal justice system.
Haworth has also begun the publication of the "Journal of Security Education," a new title that is designed to help criminal justice educators, practitioners and students meet the "increasing need for security in the United States." The journal examines developments on the areas of security education and training, including digital and video surveillance systems, computer and video forensics, embedded and outcomes assessment, security law and ethics, security system policy and procedure, privacy in the workplace, the U.S. Patriot Act and the Department of Homeland Security.
It will be published twice in 2006 and quarterly beginning in 2007. An annual subscription costs $48 for individuals, $95 for institutions and $450 for libraries.
