This journal is a groundbreaking forum for presentation and analysis of innovative research, programs, and policies for and about prevention, control, and mitigation of child abuse and neglect. It includes descriptions and reviews of child protection programs and policies and evaluations of their effects. The journal also welcomes scholarly reports of theory-grounded empirical research on the nature of child maltreatment and its causes and correlates. Whatever their specific foci, however, articles in the journal should facilitate the fulfillment of children's right to personal security.
