Benefits (now known as The Journal of Poverty and Social Justice)

New aims and scope

Benefits (to be known as The Journal of Poverty and Social Justice from 2010) provides a unique blend of high-quality research, policy and practice from leading authors in the field related to all aspects of poverty and social exclusion. The journal has changed its name to reflect its wider scope and has growing international coverage.

Content spans a broad spectrum of poverty-related topics including social security, employment and unemployment, regeneration, housing, health, education and criminal justice, as well as issues of ethnicity, gender, disability and other inequalities as they relate to social justice.

With succinct articles ideal for teaching purposes and students, The Journal of Poverty and Social Justice combines an original and exciting mix of:

  • scholarly, peer-reviewed articles
  • cutting-edge discussions of topical issues
  • a comprehensive round-up of key publications

It will be an essential resource for academics, policymakers and practitioners working in these areas.

Benefits is now published as Journal of Poverty and Social Justice.
