Journal of Trafficking and Human Exploitation

The JTHE is primarily concerned with publishing high quality legal articles and significant case notes from domestic, regional and international jurisdictions. However, this journal will also consider interdisciplinary submissions and book reviews.

Forces of globalisation enable an ever increasing market for the commodification of human beings. In an effort to combat such actions, domestic, regional and international legal systems have outlawed trafficking in persons and various forms of human exploitation. Freedom from trafficking and such practices including slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour have also been codified in every human rights instrument across the globe establishing national obligations to investigate alleged abuses and prosecute offenders. And while there is a plethora of scholarship claiming various inadequacies pertaining to these laws and their use in practice, an academic and practical outlet focused on the laws of trafficking and human exploitation has yet to manifest. 

 

The Journal of Trafficking and Human Exploitation (JHTE) will aim to fill this gap and serve as the premier forum to discuss and debate the legal and policy issues involving prevention, intervention, investigations, prosecution, individual, state and corporate responsibility, and the actual codified offenses, their application in practice, subsequent judicial interpretation and any ramifications emanating therefrom. As the mass perpetration of trafficking and human exploitation only appears to continue, the need to research, understand and clarify these laws and their use in practice is paramount.

 

This journal seeks high quality submissions reflecting a diverse range of perspectives addressing domestic, regional, international and comparative legal issues. The core submissions are intended from the following legal realms:

  • Criminal law
  • Human rights law
  • International law
  • Labour law
  • Migration and asylum law

 

Addressing the substantive laws and jurisprudence involving human exploitation is an underexplored realm in need of attention and analysis. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Slavery
  • Servitude
  • Forced and compulsory labour
  • Sexual exploitation
  • Recruitment and use of child soldiers
  • Forced and early marriage
  • Organ trafficking

 

The JTHE is primarily concerned with publishing high quality legal articles and significant case notes from domestic, regional and international jurisdictions. However, this journal will also consider interdisciplinary submissions and book reviews.

 

Peer review

The JTHE uses a double-blind peer review process.

 

Frequency

Authors’s guidelines

 

Editorial policy

The Journal of Trafficking and Human Exploitation (JTHE) is primarily concerned with addressing legal issues involving the trade in human beings and their exploitation. As such, it will publish academic articles and essays  which discuss and debate the legal and policy issues involving prevention, intervention, investigations, prosecution, individual, state and corporate responsibility, and the actual codified offenses, their application in practice, subsequent judicial interpretation and any ramifications emanating therefrom. Additionally, the JTHE will also publish significant case notes and relevant book reviews.

 

Publications Ethics

The JTHE editors will operate in alignment with the Code of Conduct for Journal Editors developed by COPE (the Committee on Publication Ethics), which provides a forum for publishers and Editors of scientific journals to discuss issues relating to the integrity of the work submitted to or published in their journals.

 

Potential conflict of interest

Conflict of interest exists when an author (or the author’s institution), reviewer, or editor has financial or personal relationships that inappropriately influence (bias) his or her actions (such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties).

 

Editors who make final decisions about manuscripts must have no personal, professional, or financial involvement in any of the issues they might judge.

 

All participants in the peer-review and publication process must disclose all relationships that could be viewed as potential conflicts of interest.

 

When authors submit a manuscript, whether an article or another publication, they are responsible for disclosing all financial and personal relationships that might bias their work.

 

JTHE Peer review process

The JTHE peer reviews all the material it receives, internally and externally.

In order to ensure that the review process can be as efficient as possible for both authors and reviewers, all manuscripts are initially reviewed internally and then a decision is made about whether to send the paper for external review. The manuscript may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected.

The reviewers are specifically queried  on the scientific originality, quality and correctness.

Manuscripts will be reviewed with due respect for the authors’ confidentiality.

 

Criteria for acceptance:

Importance and interest to this journal's readership

Scientific soundness

Originality

Degree to which conclusions are supported

Organization and clarity

Cohesiveness of argument

Length relative to information content

Conciseness and writing style

Appropriateness for the targeted journal and specific section of the journal

Conflict-of-Interest Notification Page

When authors submit a manuscript, whether an article or another publication, they are responsible for disclosing all financial and personal relationships that might bias their work.
