European Journal of Policing Studies

In 2013 the European Journal of Policing Studies (EJPS) was founded. Since then many issues of this journal have been published about highly different aspects of police and policing, from very different theoretical and methodological perspectives. Special issues of the journal were published about for instance plural policing, police cultures and methodology in police research.

In 2022 EJPS makes a new start, from now on published by Eleven. As before, EJPS wants to publish high-quality papers that provide insights into contemporary policing discussions in or related to (continental) Europe. It focuses on issues that are of interest to the police and other actors in policing, and that may shape (the future of) policing. EJPS aims to offer authors ample room to present their (empirical) research results. Furthermore, EJPS also aims to publish special issues, focusing on specific topics or themes that are relevant for both the policy and practice of (public and private) policing.
