With the inaugural issue published in 2015, Journal of Human Trafficking has become a leader in the dissemination of scholarship on all issues related to trafficking in persons—from prevention and intervention, to protection and prosecution. This presentation will focus on how JHT emerged as a scholarly journal published by Routledge/Taylor & Francis, as well as its mission and scope. Questions regarding the submission process, peer review, and Editorial feedback will be addressed.
