Manuscripts are commissioned by the Editorial Board and/or may be submitted. TVA accepts comprehensive reviews of research, legal cases, or conceptual and theoretical developments in any aspect of trauma, violence or abuse. Each manuscript must begin with a clear description of the knowledge area that is being researched or reviewed and its relevance to understanding or dealing with trauma, violence, or abuse. Each review manuscript must also provide a clear discussion of the limits of the knowledge which has been reviewed, and must include two summary tables; one of critical findings and the other listing implications of the review for practice, policy, and research. The tables, which summarize critical findings and implications for practice, policy and research, must accompany submission.
Interested potential authors are encouraged to contact the editor with an idea for a review manuscript. Manuscripts should be prepared in APA style and may be up to thirty-five typed double spaced pages in length. All manuscripts are peer reviewed and should be submitted with a letter indicating that the material has not been published elsewhere and is not under review at another publication. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tva where authors will be required to set up an online account on the SageTrack system powered by ScholarOne.
