This Journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics.

Incarceration is the primary publication for peer-reviewed articles relating to all forms of coercive confinement, including imprisonment, immigration detention and other forms of institutional and non-institutional confinement. It provides a unique forum for articles that focus on the experience, dynamics, modes, cultures, determinants and effects of all forms of incarceration. Incarceration is a continuous publication journal.

The aim of Incarceration: An international journal of imprisonment, detention and coercive confinement is to publish high quality original scholarship dealing with prisons and prison-like institutions and practices, including police custody, court cells, hostage-taking, kidnapping, rendition, pre-trial/ remand institutions, immigration detention centres, juvenile detention centres, reformatory schools, secure psychiatric hospitals and other places and experiences of coercive confinement. The journal welcomes submissions on virtual confinement, such as electronic monitoring and house arrest, and work that considers coercive practices in the community, where they are linked to pre-release incarceration. In summary, Incarceration focuses on empirically informed and theoretically robust analyses of these institutions as social systems and on understanding the everyday life of working, living in and managing places of coercive confinement.
