The Journal of Family Violence (JOFV) is a peer-reviewed publication committed to the dissemination of rigorous research on preventing, ending, and ameliorating all forms of family violence.

JOFV welcomes scholarly articles related to the broad categories of child abuse and maltreatment, dating violence, domestic and partner violence, and elder abuse. Within these categories, JOFV emphasizes research on physical violence, psychological violence, sexual violence, and homicides that occur in families. Studies on families in all their various forms and diversities are welcome.

JOFV publishes studies using quantitative, qualitative, and/or mixed methods involving the collection of primary data. Rigorous systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and theoretical analyses are also welcome. To help advance scientific understandings of family violence, JOFV is especially interested in research using transdisciplinary perspectives and innovative research methods. Because family violence is a global problem requiring solutions from diverse disciplinary perspectives, JOFV strongly encourages submissions from scholars worldwide from all disciplines and backgrounds.
