SAANZ is the journal of the Australian and New Zealand Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abuse.
SAANZ is an academic journal that seeks to represent the interests and activities, especially research and clinical applications, of those who work in the area of sexual abuse in Australia and New Zealand. The journal is maintained through the contributions and investment of ANZATSA's membership. SAANZ is concerned with understanding the psychological and social factors that impact on sexual offending and sexual abuse, and the victims of sexual offending and in promoting best practice in this important field.
Topics considered appropriate for the journal, but not necessarily limited to, include risk assessment and profiling of offenders and offences, treatment and custody issues, pure and applied research into features associated with sexual offending and sexual abuse, and the impact of offending and abuse on victim/survivors and treatment for such persons.
The Journal welcomes contributions from across the disciplines. The journal seeks to develop a primary focus on the application of research and practice in the sex offending area, and hence our focus is on empirical investigation, the application of theory and clinical developments in the treatment of both victims and offenders. Theoretical papers of relevance to understanding sexual offending, sexual abuse, assessment or management of sexual abusers will be accepted.
The journal is indexed in Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts (AASIA) and Ulrich. The journal is a peer reviewed journal. All submissions are reviewed by at least two peer reviewers. All reviews are anonymous.
The first issue of SAANZ was published in July, 2008.
In order to submit an article for publication in SAANZ, authors should prepare a manuscript that conforms to the following guidelines. Articles will then be reviewed by members of the Editorial Committee and the outcome of this review will be communicated with the authors so that any changes can be made prior to the article being accepted for publication.
SAANZ aims to publish articles that address areas in sexual abuse that are of practical or theoretical importance. In addition to articles that address research initiatives and theory development, SAANZ encourages submissions that discuss relevant issues in clinical practice with sexual abuse. SAANZ expects articles that will be published will be of a sufficient academic standard to be accepted by peer review and promote the work of ANZATSA on an international stage. SAANZ will publish works that address both survivor and abuser issues.
ANZATSA retains the copyright of all articles published, both in written and electronic forms (World Wide Web). Authors' abstracts will be reproduced on the webpage of the ANZATSA site as well as published in the journal.
