Trauma, Violence, & Abuse (TVA) is devoted to organizing, synthesizing, and expanding knowledge on all forms of trauma, abuse, and violence. This peer-reviewed, online journal is practitioner oriented and will publish only reviews of research and law review articles. TVA is dedicated to professionals and advanced students who work with any form of trauma, abuse, and violence. It is intended to compile knowledge that clearly affects practice, policy, and research.
TVA publishes reviews of research studies. We also publish legal analyses, which include reviews of case outcomes, laws, or the research upon which the analyses are based. Reviews must be based on a sufficient number of studies to justify synthesis. Reviewed literatures may come from the social or behavioral sciences or the law.
Reviews of issues related to trauma, violence, and/or abuse are not appropriate unless they are based on a comprehensive review of research. TVA does not publish case studies or reports on individual research studies.
