Editorial Team: Rob Canton (, Gerhard Ploeg, John Deering (Book Reviews)

EuroVista Probation Community JusticeEuroVista: Probation and Community Justice is a journal designed to provide both practitioners and academics interested in the management of probation services and other criminal justice agencies with up-to-date insights on research and practice developments.

The journal is sponsored by the Probation Boards’ Association ( and is published three times a year.

EuroVista: Probation and Community Justice, first published in January 2010, is a tri-annual journal on probation matters in Europe. EuroVista aims to provide readers with an accessible, scholarly and relevant source of information on probation research and practice development for both academics and practitioners.

In order to make the access to this information as easy as possible, EuroVista is not only an e-publication, but also exists in print. Printed versions of the journals and single articles can be ordered via the web shop of the University of Birmingham.

EuroVista is a co-production of the Institute of Local Government Studies at the University of Birmingham, and CEP, the European organisation for Probation. EuroVista is closely collaborating with another new e-journal on European probation, the European Journal of Probation. EPJ is a peer review academic journal aiming to promote comparative research on probation and community justice across Europe, founded in 2009.  EuroVista and EPJ thus cover together a broad spectrum of probation topics and promote the development of a science of probation.
