The journal “Sexual Offending: Theory, Research, and Prevention (SOTRAP)” is an international peer-reviewed journal open to all scientists, clinicians, and policymakers researching and preventing all forms of sexual violence. We welcome all contributions that enhance or illuminate relevant clinical practice, science, and policy about the etiology, prevention, (risk) assessment, treatment, and management of individuals who have committed sexual offenses or are at risk of doing so. Furthermore, aspects of legal, psychological, and somatic consequences of sexual offending are of interest for the readership of SOTRAP.
We would like to invite clinicians, practitioners, and academics to submit research articles, reviews, meta-analyses, brief research notes/articles (e.g., brief methodological discussions), and (clinical) case reports/studies. We accept both qualitative and quantitative research. We fully acknowledge the value and importance of open science practices and SOTRAP would like to contribute to a better understanding and implementation of open science practices in the field of sex research and forensic sciences.
SOTRAP is the official journal of the International Association for the Treatment of Sexual Offenders (IATSO). IATSO was also responsible for the publication of the predecessor of SOTRAP, “Sexual Offender Treatment” (SOT, ISSN 1862-2941).
